The City of Daphne Youth Basketball League is for boys and girls in 1st grade - 8th grade. The league will be broken down into 4 divisions: 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, 5th and 6th grade and 7th and 8th grade. All age groups will be coed unless we have enough girls to form girls only teams 3rd grade and higher. If we get enough girls to form a team or two, they would likely play against neighboring towns.
