The Delaware County Youth League Basketball Program kicked off its inaugural season in the Fall of 2021. The program began with a pre-season tournament in November and the regular season ended on April 2nd with the 4th/5th-grade championship tournament.
Over 125 4th-8th graders across Delaware County participated in the Fall/Winter program, which was played in Muncie Community Schools facilities across the city.
The boys and girls who participated in the program received “camp style” training each week at practice and were split into teams for scrimmages and eventually a full season of games.
The goal of the program is to provide year-round skill development and league structured basketball for the youth of Muncie & Delaware County.
With the conclusion of the inaugural league, the DCYL is finalizing plans for a Spring/Summer program and the continuation next Fall with year 2 of the program. The historic Muncie Fieldhouse will become the main location for practices and games as the program expands and we look to include more grade levels in year 2.
