St. John Parish Recreation provides a youth Biddy Basketball Program for kids ages 5 –12. This program teaches about sportsmanship, fundamental skills, along with development of those skills. Positive attitudes and positive coaching is enforced for the success of the program. Volunteer coaches are the basis of this successful program. They show determination in helping these kids develop their talents. Many of our players have gone on to have success in their middle school, high school, and college careers. Games are played as an intramural league. Some kids advance to All-Star play, which allows them to compete on a more competitive scale. The hard work and effort of our players and coaches can be measured by the many appearances and championships they have received over the years. Recreational basketball registration takes place from September to November. The season runs from November– January.
