Basketball leagues

Volo Sports leagues operate a lot like the sports leagues of your youth. Most of our leagues are 5 to 8 weeks and culminate in a series of playoff games to crown a champion! By competing in leagues, your team can also qualify for championship tournaments throughout the year to compete for city-wide titles. A team t-shirt is always included with registration and you will receive it at your first game. Volo provides referees, equipment, prizes, and specially trained staff members for your game. After your games each week, you and your team will head over to one of our sponsor bars for some post-game fun! Volo hosts the best post-game social parties and you will have access to Volo exclusive food and drink specials. By participating in leagues, you will also enjoy special invitations to Volo events, often including an end of season party. We strive to keep the games fair, safe, and stress free so that all you need to do is show up, play, socialize, and have a great time!
