Our complex is located off Old Canton Rd a few blocks from Parham Bridges Park and is at the end of Westbrook Rd past McLeod Elementary School and across the street from MS Basketball Association.  

Opening and closing jamborees:
Our Division 3 recreational teams in the 2011-2016 (U4-U10) birth years will begin games on Saturday, January 25, 2020 and closing jamboree will be Saturday, March 21, 2020. Players born in 2006-2009(U12-U14) will begin play after around February 15 and continue until Mid-April. These teams will NOT play on opening day.  

Game days for the season:
Regular Game Days for U4-U10: ALL games are played on Saturday mornings during the season. The only games that will be played during the week will be any rainouts from Saturday and the week preceding spring break since we do not play during spring break weekends.  We only play weekday games exclusively during the fall season due to college football and families wanting to attend those games.  

IMPORTANT: If your child plays winter basketball, they can still play soccer! The age groups effected by that the first few weeks of the soccer season will start games at noon and after in order to give those basketball players time to finish their season. And we also end before North Jackson baseball and soccer recreational programs begin their games. At the young ages, the children can take part in as many sports as the parent allows and we encourage that. 

Opening jamboree will be on Saturday, January 25 for all U4-U10 boys and girls. Each team will play 2 games this day. Closing jamboree will be Saturday, March 21. Each team will play two games that day.

Rainout schedule and Spring break (if your Saturday game is rained out, you will be scheduled to play the next week on these nights. The week of March 2 which precedes spring break, teams will play on these days as well. 

Monday nights - 2016 boys and girls (Under 4), 2015 boys and girls (Under 5) and 2012 boys and girls (Under 8).

Regular practice days:
Practice times for ALL ages are determined by individual volunteer coaches. But teams should expect one practice day during the week in addition to their game day.

Not good at lining? There will be plenty of things that can be done other then lining fields.
