Competitive Levels: Two competitive levels are available in the Minor, Intermediate, Junior, and Senior boys leagues. The "A" division is intended to be of a higher competitive level for the more experienced players, while the "B" division is designed to be developmental in nature.

Instructional League: This program is designed as an introduction to basketball for 7&8 year old boys. The emphasis is on the instruction of skills. The core of the program is regional clinics conducted on Saturday mornings.

Team Selection: Teams are selected shortly after the talent assessments, which are conducted during the month of November.  Instructional teams are organized by the Basketball Administrators.

Coaches: Head coaches are selected by the Basketball Administrator. Assistant coaches are selected by the head coaches.

Season: Pre-season practice begins around the middle of November, and the final game is around the middle of March.

Games:  Most games are played on Saturdays and a few Sundays beginning the first Saturday after New Years and extend until the beginning of March for boys. Game schedules are typically distributed by the League during the week prior to the first game. Please note: Smith Athletic Association does not set up the game schedules.
