La Liga del Barrio is Philadelphia’s first Latino youth basketball league and it offers Latino youth an opportunity to develop basketball skills and enjoy the game while also promoting educational achievement. The league is open for boys and girls ages 6 to 18 and consist of up to 36 teams per season.
Each player receives a jersey, and take part in our annual “ Liga Draft Day” in which all players present are selected. The league begins with clinics (dates to be determined), and scrimmages in early December, and 9 league official games to follow. League Registration for Liga is the lowest in the City of Philadelphia. Players also get to participate in a year-end Awards Ceremony. On April 29th La Liga will also be celebrating its 20th year anniversary (postponed in 2020 due to Covid Pandemic). Sponsorship interest for the Gala can be found above in the Gala tab.
