PARA will provide an opportunity for youth of Tuscaloosa County to participate in an organized league of basketball. This league will endeavor to teach participants good sportsmanship, team work, and the fundamentals of Basketball under the guidance of qualified adult leadership.
The Tuscaloosa County Park and Recreation Authority will adhere to current Federal CDC, state ADPH, and local health guidelines as well as the Alabama High School Athletics Association AHSAA, when administering and coordinating public safety in our facilities for youth and adult athletic events when dealing with the public in regards to public health and safety.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to postpone ALL games until after the first of the year. We will work to reschedule all postponed games. We will send out updated schedules to participants in the near future.
