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 32 teams per season. As of 2021, the league expanded to include young adults ages 19-25.
Each player receives a jersey, and takes part in our annual “Liga Draft Day” in which all players present are selected. The league begins with scrimmages on December 4, 2021, and 9 league official games, played on Saturdays, to follow in early January. League Registration Fees for Liga is one of the lowest in the City of Philadelphia. Players also get to participate in a year-end Awards Ceremony. On April 29, 2022, La Liga will 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 under Events.
