BASKETBALL

All of the PLTL Basketball Programs are managed by our local Board of Directors and the appointed Boys and Girls Basketball Directors.  All PLTL practices will be at the Princeton Elementary & Middle/High Schools.  The gyms used for both games and practices are the Middle School gym and the old High School gym.

The emphasis of the PLTL basketball program is to teach boys and girls AGES 5-15 the fundamentals of basketball and enhance the skills of the more experienced players.  The program encourages development in both individual and team skills, in an atmosphere of fun and good sportsmanship. Mandatory playing requirements are in place in our lower division to ensure all children have the opportunity to play and improve their in-game skills and ability.
