Youth Sports

Participation in sports has been proven to build self-esteem, promote teamwork, develop the body as well as the mind, and is an integral part of the maturation process. Therefore, the goal of Cheney Parks & Recreation is to provide the program and venue for young people of all backgrounds to participate and enjoy a variety of recreational programs while maintaining a safe, wholesome environment.

City of Cheney Parks and Recreation strongly believes in the benefits of participation in organized sports.

Winter 2022 Youth Sports
Registration Deadline: December 10, 2021 
Basketball | Ages 5-12 | Jan. 10 - Feb. 25 | $64

We just received word from the schools that we will be able to use their facilities for youth basketball. A HUGE thank you to them for working with us. However, before you register please read important information regarding the season and COVID-19 guidelines below:

Basketball is considered a high-risk sport. Therefore, all athletes must wear masks while practicing and competing in games. 
๐Ÿ€Only students who live within the Cheney School District boundaries are allowed to participate in the league. This includes homeschooled and private schooled children. 
๐Ÿ€Athletes are only permitted to practice and play games at the school they attend. For example, only Betz kids can play on Betz teams at Betz.
๐Ÿ€Practices will only be Monday-Thursday between the times of 6pm-8pm, and games will be Friday nights between the times of 6-8pm at the schools your athlete practices at. We will no longer have Saturday games at CMS this season.
๐Ÿ€The schools have activities and programs that happen during the evenings after school hours and we will need to be flexible with our schedule. If practice gets canceled due to a school event we will do our best to try and reschedule. Please be patient and understanding if this happens.
๐Ÿ€Games might not have referees due to a shortage of people applying for the position. We will do our best to have refs for ages 9-12 games, but please note that coaches might need to ref.
๐Ÿ€We cannot host other city teams at Cheney Schools, but our teams can travel to Airway Heights and Medical Lake to play games.
๐Ÿ€We desperately need volunteer coaches for our teams. All coaches must be vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask at all times while coaching, and complete a background check. If interested in coaching please contact Kelly at
If you understand and agree with the terms above, please call 509-498-9250 to register. REGISTRATION ENDS DECEMBER 10TH AT 5PM! The cost is $64 and the season starts January 10th.
