Desert Foothills Athletic Club


Welcome to DFAC Recreational Basketball!

League In

DFAC basketball will set up Winter and Summer leagues for both boys and girls currently in grades 1-8.  For our Winter season all games will be played on Saturdays in January, February and March.  All games will be played inside at either the Desert Arroyo Middle School Gym, Sonoran Trails Middle School Gym or Cactus Shadows High School Gym.

Get involved in Desert Foothills Basketball

There are many areas that we need help and support.  Most people think that if they don’t coach they probably can’t be involved in the league.  Quite the opposite.  We need help in many areas including coordinators for all three gyms, uniforms, trophies, scheduling, league communications, practice setup, printing, special events, fund raising, registration, referees, equipment, supplies, league drafts, and coaching directors at all levels.  If you have interest in becoming a member of the Desert Foothills Basketball Leadership committee please contact Mark Machin at

We need you!

DFAC Basketball Leadership Committee
We are currently looking for folks to join our leadership committee for the recreational basketball program.  We have several areas that need help and support including league directors, gym coordinators, uniforms, trophies, league communications, referees, special events and fundraising.  This is a great way to support the youth of our community.  If you are interested in finding out more information, email us at

Gym Volunteers Needed
Volunteers are needed to set up and close gyms for the winter season.  Help is needed to set up tables, chairs and game equipment before all games and clean up and put all equipment away after games.  It takes 2-3 people about 20 minutes before and after games to complete.  If you are able to help out on Saturdays, email us at
