2022-2023 Basketball Programs

It’ that time of year again! PDSA Basketball will be back again this year. Registration will open on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 AM.

Please read the below email as it has important information on all of our league offerings, including volunteering, the expansion of our oldest co-ed league to allow for the registration of 13-year-old boys, COVID vaccination requirements, sponsorship, and season details.


As you know Philly Dragons Sports Association is a non-profit, volunteer run organization. We need the help of many parent volunteers to make our program work. We need Division Commissioners, coaches, and assistant coaches. Anyone that plans to be a commissioner or coach MUST register to do so through our website, which includes uploading of Child Abuse Clearances and PA Criminal Background Check. Links to obtain each are listed below. You will not be able to coach without completing these background checks. Please reach out to me at Jerry Kranzel Email if you can volunteer or if you have questions about what is involved.

Ages and Divisions

We offer leagues for boys and girls ages 5 through 13. Your child’s age for purposes of our leagues is their age as of September 1, 2022.

Big East – Co-ed 5 year olds
ACC and Big 10 – Co-ed 6-8 year olds
WNBA 6-8 – Girls only 6-8 year olds
NBA 9-10 – Co-ed 9-10 year olds
WNBA 9-10 – Girls only 9-10 year olds
NBA 11-13 – Co-ed 11-13 year olds – note for 2022-2023 – this league is expanded by one year this year
WNBA 11-13 – Girls only 11-13 year olds

Note for registration – All children are welcome to register in our co-ed leagues, but please note that these leagues have historically been 95% or more boys.

COVID and Vaccination

All PDSA sports require that participants and coaches are current on vaccinations for COVID. Proof of vaccination will be required as part of your registration. PDSA will follow local guidance and ordinance on any other COVID protocols and will adjust any policies related to those as necessary. All participants will be required to follow any change in policy put forth by the league.

PDSA Basketball Season Schedule

There will be two days of evaluations on two weekend days in November. You only need to attend one day of evaluations. Dates are pending and will be communicated when they are available.

Our seasons start in early December with practices. Games start in late December or early January. Seasons wrap up by the end of February or the very first week of March. The league is off between Christmas and New Year’s.

We are a weekend league. All games and practices will be Friday evenings, Saturday or Sunday. We have 4 or 5 venues that we use. We are still finalizing schedules with our venues, and so we do not know which divisions will play in which venue. Some parents have asked if they can wait to register until days/times/locations are better defined for each league, and you certainly can, but please be aware that most of our leagues sold out last year and had waiting lists.


Again, PDSA is a non-profit, 100% volunteer run organization. The registration fees are not sufficient to fund the cost of running our basketball league. If you are interested in sponsoring a team, please reach out to me, or there will be an opportunity to sign up as a sponsor when you register your child(ren).


Our leagues welcome a wide range of skill sets, from beginners to high level travel players. Coaches (especially in our younger leagues) are encouraged to work on player development as much as winning and losing. Team rosters consist of 10 players (sometimes less), and each player plays at least half of each game.

With everyone’s help, we look forward to another successful season!
