Instructional League Basketball

As school starts up in January, so does regular season for Instructional League Basketball. Teams are practicing and games are starting second week in January.  For a complete schedule, go to our schedules page on our website.  If your child is on a team please sign up to receive a text alert if your class is cancelled due to weather or changes location.  Go to RainedOut.net, enter "Basalt Recreation Department" in the organization name, click on the link, enter your phone number and they will send you a verification code via text for you to enter the system. After entering the verification code it will take you to a page listing all our coaches and classes to receive information on. It’s that easy! This will be the only way we will be notifying you if a game or practice is canceled or changes location. You will not receive any texts that you don’t want. It works, it’s fast and it’s easy!
