ISLAND GARDEN SUPER LEAGUE KICKS OFF ITS 25TH YEAR
Now in our twenty fifth season, the Island Garden Super League has evolved into one of the most successful youth basketball leagues in the country. Super League is designed for everyone! There are divisions for boys and girls ranging from the third to the twelfth grade. Wherever possible, each grade is broken down into three ability levels in order to foster equal competition. It is our goal to provide an excellent experience for every team regardless of its final winning percentage. We make every effort to meet your scheduling requests so that your participation does not conflict with other leagues and that whenever possible, we will match teams against others with equal ability. Providing friendly and excellent service to you is our primary goal. Service is the true value of our league. In addition to tremendous service, we also strive every day to incorporate the most advanced technology into all aspects of our Super League to make it the most enjoyable experience possible for the players, coaches and parents.
WHAT IS NEW FOR THE 2018 – 2019 SEASON:
