The Catoosa County Youth Basketball League consists of teams ages 4 – 14 from Ringgold Youth Athletic Association, Lakeview-Ft. Oglethorpe Recreation Association, Boynton Recreation Association and the City of East Ridge Recreation Dept. Sign-Ups are typically accepted in the month of October. Players are evaluated, drafted and are contacted by their coach in November when practice usually begins. The league normally has two pre-season jamborees in early December and the regular season usually lasts seven to eight weeks (Jan. – Feb.). The post-season tournament starts in the middle of February after the regular season ends and plays out until a champion is crowned.
