League Information:

The Badger Developmental League is a traveling league playing against teams in and around Dane County.  Equal teams will be created for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.  Teams will be split based on basketball skill level for 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  The BDL aspires to provide competitively balanced programs the opportunity to compete in league games entirely on six dates, five regular season dates and a season ending tournament. Games on each date are all in the same community.  A mandatory parent meeting will be held for all grade levels at the Middle School Gym on Wednesday, September 13th, 6:00-8:00pm.  Skills assessments will be held on Sunday, September 17th and 24th. Specifics on this assessment will be discussed at the parent meeting.
