Pee Wee Basketball League FAQs
What if my child doesn't live in the Beaverton School District?
It's okay. All children are welcome to play in the Westside YMCA Leagues at no additional cost.

All practices and games will be played on Saturdays at the Beaverton Hoop YMCA (9685 SW Harvest Ct. Beaverton, OR 97005). The Pee Wee League does not have any weekday/weeknight commitment.

For example, if a team is scheduled to play at 11:00 AM, the team will practice from 11:00 AM – 11:20 AM (they'll share the court with another team) and then the two teams will play the game from 11:20 AM – 12:00 Noon.
