The Southern Colorado Basketball League is a locally owned competitive basketball league that emphasizes good sportsmanship and fair play. Integrity and character are just a couple of the attributes that fostered through the time spent playing in a SoCo League.
SoCo available to teams interested in taking their skills to the next level. Coaches who have a team of boys/girls in the grades 4th - 10th (during the present school year) can sign up their team for our fall and/or spring league. Both leagues include an 8 game regular season that leads to a single elimination tournament.
SoCo provides the organization for the league, all game sites, referees, t-shirts (not uniforms), awards for the tournament winners and insurance for games. SoCo will also provide liability insurance for facilities at which your team practices and plays. This is included in the cost of SoCo. Teams must be registered or related the SoCo league or tournament for the insurance to be effective. If you need your practice facility covered, as an additionally insured facility, please contact Megan Leatham by clicking here.
The spring season usually starts the 1st weekend of April. Games are not played on Easter Sunday or Mother's day weekend. The deadline for registering a team is around mid March. Spring games are played on Friday evenings, all day Saturday, and Sunday after 12:00am.
The fall season starts around the 2nd weekend of September and runs through late October. The deadline for entering is in early September. Fall games are played Saturday afternoon and Sundays after noon. Teams may have one or two games scheduled per weekend. In consideration of family planning, all schedules will be given out prior to the first game and are established for the remainder of the season. Coaches must attend a meeting held prior to each season to discuss expectations.
If a particular division has 14 teams or more, we will split the division into either the Gold or Silver division. The Gold division will be for more advanced teams, and the Silver for teams still developing. We do expect the Silver division to be very competitive as well. We can help you decide which division is best for your team.

If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.â€?
