GVBL Summer Basketball Update - HOT NEWS!!

The Great Valley Basketball League is happy to announce that we are working with the Great Valley School District and other local sites to offer a recreational summer outdoor basketball league for boys and girls living within the Great Valley School District.

Plans remain fluid and lots of work is being completed to ensure that we can offer a safe and fun outdoor league for players entering grades 3 - 8 to participate starting in July. 

For now we have lined up facilities for Boys and Girls 3/4 Divisions at the Desmond Hotel court. Once additional sites are finalized, we will open up registrations for the other divisions. 

SIGN UP NOW until July 5th at 11PM for rising 3rd and 4th grade boys and girls divisions! To be added to the wait list, please email Gary Taiariol at [email protected] with the player's name, grade for the Fall, school name and age.

Rising 3rd and 4th grade Division details:
Dates: Register now - July 2nd
Games played July 6th - Mid August, Monday - Thursday evenings
Games start at 5:00 p.m
Rain out dates - TBD
No practices
Where: Desmond Hotel court (1 Liberty Blvd, Malvern)
Player Limits - Due to limited court availability, each division will have a maximum number of players allowed to register. 
Boys and Girls 3/4 will be limited to 60 players.

We look forward to a great summer of GVBL Basketball outdoors! 



GVBL Basketball and GVBL Center Update - June 2020

Returning soon - GVBL Basketball?!

We hope that everyone is doing well during these difficult times. As we have previously shared, we will no longer be playing basketball at the GVBL Center. However, lots of planning is going on behind the scenes for the return of GVBL Basketball at other locations, while we await the building of our New GVCO Center.

While we are uncertain of when we will be allowed to resume operations, we have begun planning for our winter season, while also researching options for an abbreviated summer/ fall schedule. Our tournament teams are getting ready to resume and we are lining up clinicians and trainers to run clinics.

Once it is safe for basketball to return, GVBL will be ready to offer basketball options for the Great Valley community. Until then, tell your kids to keep practicing!
