The ExCEL offers a Youth Basketball League for two 8-game seasons throughout the year.


Divisions are assigned according to grade level. Divisions may be combined with the next group if needed to form enough divisional teams. Teams and/or players may play up to an older division, however teams and/or players may not play down to a younger division.
