THE REC LEAGUE IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THE PBBA. IT HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN HELPING THOSE STUDENT/ATHLETES IMPROVE THEIR GAME AND TAKE THE NEXT STEP TO THE COMPETITIVE LEVEL.
The main goal of the Prairie Recreational League is “to provide an economical introduction of basketball and teach the fundamental basketball skills necessary for a lifetime of basketball enjoyment.” A secondary goal is “to provide interested athletes a fundamental basis for competing in the Prairie Middle School Basketball Program.”
The Prairie Recreational League plays each Saturday in January through mid-March at Ridge Elementary. REC League is intended for male & female athletes in the 2nd through 6th grades interested in learning and developing the basic skills of basketball and playing against classmates in a non-competitive setting.
Games are intended to measure an athlete’s individual skill improvement and not to create a competitive environment for the players. Equal playing time in games is a requirement of the Prairie Recreational League.
