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
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.
Only students who live within the Cheney School District boundaries are allowed to participate in the league. This includes homeschooled and private schooled children.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We cannot host other city teams at Cheney Schools, but our teams can travel to Airway Heights and Medical Lake to play games.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
