PCPR YOUTH BASKETBALL

The purpose of the Platte County Parks and Recreation Basketball Program is to instill the ideals of teamwork, good sportsmanship, commitment, and self-improvement. 

Our goals are to provide:

  • A healthy, safe environment for practices and games
  • The opportunity to learn and play the game of basketball
  • An opportunity for physical activity
  • To provide a positive and enjoyable experience

We believe that involvement in youth activities will provide opportunities for personal growth and development. Our program is designed to be recreational, where winning is secondary to the overall development of our youth.
