Boys Basketball

*** Proudly sponsored by Rentschler Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Chevrolet in Slatington***

The basketball program is run by a group of dedicated parents, and governed by the NLYAA. Any interested parent is encouraged to attend the NLYAA meetings. Meetings are usually scheduled for the first Monday of every month at 7:30PM in the NL Middle School Library.  We hope to see you there!
