Unless registrations dictate otherwise, the program is operated as a co-ed league where the girls and boys will play against one another in grade levels 1st-8th. The 2020 season is set to begin on November 14th.
The PJBL is set up to be a recreational basketball league and is intended to be fun for all participants while they learn and develop their skills in the game of basketball. The PJBL will be conducted with practices on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, and games on Saturdays; however, is subject to change based on weather and participation levels. All games and practices will be held at the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center.
The 2020-21 PJBL season has altered operations due to the Indiana Back on Track Plan. The league will only allow three (3) spectators per player at each game/practice, and seating will be limited. A full safety plan will be provided prior to any practices or games outlining all social distancing practices the league will be following.
