Preparation for the Winter basketball season is underway.  To make this season successful, we need many volunteers like YOU.  At present, we have an immediate need for volunteer coaches in these divisions:


B3      NEED 4


B4      NEED 2


B5      NEED 8


B6      NEED 4


B7      NEED 6


B8      NEED 7


B10    NEED 5


B11    NEED 2


G4/5    NEED 3


G6/8   NEED 3


When we do not have enough volunteer coaches, we are forced to turn waitlisted players away.  Our goal is to give every child who wants to play basketball the opportunity to do so.   We are asking you to consider coaching a team in your child’s division.  Coaches receive a $50 discount off the cost of their child’s registration. 


If you are (or someone you know is) interested in coaching a team this winter, please complete the Coach's application using the following link: 



Note: We can accept your child from the waitlist immediately if you fill a coaching vacancy in your child’s division.  You should register as a coach first, add your child to the waitlist, then send an email to admingainesvillebasketball.org.


Thank you to all coaches and players that have signed up so far.

Winter Registration

Online player registration for the 2021-22 Winter Basketball season ended on September 30.  You may add your child to the waitlist and we will contact you if an opening becomes available.

Registration is open to all players interested in playing Recreational & Travel Basketball.

Our Recreational League is for Boys and Girls in the 2nd-12th grades.  Practices start the week after Thanksgiving, and games begin in early January.  The Rec season will end by mid-March. 

Our Travel League (Gainesville Travel) is for players in the 5th-8th grades (4th graders can tryout to play up).  Travel Tryouts will begin in early October.  Travel practices start in mid-October and games begin in mid-November.  Players who do not make a Travel team will automatically be placed in the corresponding Rec division.

GBA has been in existence for over 29 years and we have over 2,000 families in our Recreation and Travel divisions.  Wonderful volunteers keep our organization running!  We are always looking for great coaches to help mold our players into great basketball athletes.  We will need about 175 volunteer Rec coaches this winter season. Coaches will have some flexibility in choosing their practice night, time, and location.  If you are interested in coaching Rec basketball this winter, please be sure to sign up as a coach during the open registration period.
