As the weather turns colder the sports simply go indoors. The Westlake Recreation Department is currently accepting registrations for its Youth Basketball Leagues. These leagues are open to any child in grades 1-12 who lives in, goes to school in Westlake OR is a member of the Westlake Recreation Center. Leagues are as follows:
Girls: Grades; 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-9.
Boys: Grades; 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-12.
All of the boys’ leagues are played in the Westlake Recreation Center. The Girls 7-9th graders will participate in the West Suburban Rec League. This league features other Rec teams (Non Travel) from cities like Middleburg Hts., North Olmsted, Fairview Park, and Berea etc. Half of the games are here and the other is away. Each team will get at least 12 practices and 8 games during the season. The 5th & 6th Grade girls will stay in Westlake unless there are fewer than 4 teams. In that case, those girls will also play in the West Suburban Rec League, 5th & 6th Grade division. Practices will start the first week of December and the first games will be on Saturday December 20th. We will then take off for 2 weeks for the Holiday Break. Practices will then resume in early January.

Boys Grades 7-8 will practice on Tuesday or Thursday nights
