Welcome to the new basketball page


The Arapahoe Youth League (AYL) offers the premier youth competitive basketball league in the South metro Denver area. The AYL is organized by Member Clubs that manage different territories in the areas that we support.  

League play runs from November through February, for boys and girls teams from 2nd through 8th grade.    

Please visit your Member Club website for more information and registration: 

 Bear Creek (Lakewood Area)  Cherry Creek
 Eagles (Denver Area)  Hawks (Parker Area)
 Raptors (Castle Rock Area)  South Jeffco (Littleton/Lakewood Area)
 Spartans (Aurora Area)  Stallions (North Aurora Area)
 Littleton Thunder  Warriors (Highlands Ranch Area)


Levels of Play:

Division 1: This level of competition is intended for kids who have been playing basketball consistently and understand fundamentals of ball handling and basic game rules.  Teams that have played together in other leagues for at least 1 year should consider playing at this level.   Returning AYL teams that have a greater than 50% winning record AND 60% or more of their players returning are encouraged to play at this level.

Division 2: This level of competition is intended for kids who desire a competitive basketball experience but may not have been playing on a consistent team in previous years or are just moving up from a recreational league.    


All teams will be reviewed by the Basketball Board to determine if further division of age groups is necessary, based on teams registered.  Divisions within age groups will be split into further groups: West, East, South and Midwest.  The Board will work together to create groups based on standings history and coach information to provide for better competitive matchups.  Based on number of teams registered, separate playoff and championship games may be provided for groups as appropriate.


It is the AYL basketball Board's goal to manage a program that is fun and promotes sportsmanship and a lifelong love of the game of basketball.  Throughout the season we will post updates and other additional information so please check back periodically

Thank you for participating in the AYL Basketball Program!
