Shine Special Needs Basketball is a league for ages 8-25 with special needs.
We are excited to bring Shine Special Needs Basketball back to the spring line up. Each player is paired with a buddy or staff member who can help them stay on task, learn new skills, and have fun! We are committed to making this a safe environment for your child.

Two levels of play:
- Level 1: For players with more experience and understanding of basketball. This division includes less involvement with Shine Buddies, and referees call basic violations and fouls. Score is kept. Children should be able to rebound the ball and dribble down court (exception: dribbling rules will be adapted for those who require use of a wheelchair).
- Level 2: For players who need more assistance on the court by the use of Shine Buddies. Referees will be present, but the primary goals include keeping children safe and giving all children the opportunity to succeed. Score is not kept.
