Welcome to DFAC Recreational Basketball!

League In

DFAC Basketball in-house recreational league offers two seasons, Winter (December-March) and Summer (May-July) for both boys and girls currently in grades 1-8.  We also offer a variety of Camps, Clinics and Training programs for all skill levels.

For the Winter season, practices will begin in December and all games will be played on Saturdays in January, February, and March.

The Summer season starts practices in late May and games are played Monday through Thursday evenings in June and July.  Teams will play 1-2 games per week with no weekend games.

All games for both the Winter and Summer seasons will be played inside at either the Desert Arroyo/Bella Vista Gym, Sonoran Trails Middle School Gym, or Cactus Shadows High School Gyms.

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 Boys and Girls League Directors, gym set up, uniforms, trophies, pictures, league communications, social media, fund raising, referees and  equipment.  If you have interest in becoming involved with Desert Foothills Basketball, please contact us at [email protected].

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 [email protected]

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 [email protected]
