Raytown Youth Basketball League
The League was established for the purpose of providing a healthy, recreational program for young boys and girls, kindergarten through 6th grade, interested in basketball. The League seeks to teach fundamental basketball skills and techniques; provide fun, enjoyment, and game competition with responsible adult leadership; teach sportsmanship under all conditions; build minds and bodies through good, clean, sportsmanlike play and vigorous exercise; teach boys and girls the importance of teamwork; and encourage all participants to complete what they start.
Raytown is fortunate to have several very good not-for-profit organizations providing youth sports for our kids. Because these organizations do such a good job, we choose not to offer competing and/or conflicting programs. We rely on them to run the programs that meet the youth sports needs in our community and they rely on us to provide some of the facilities they need to offer their programs. It’s an efficient relationship that serves our community well and saves lots of tax dollars as a result. The youth sports organizations are Raytown BMX and Raytown Youth Baseball/Softball Association.
