SPRING LEAGUE GENERAL INFORMATION:
Southeast Swarm Basketball does NOT run its own spring league but you can register for EYBA's spring league. It is not the same individual registration process as in the Fall / Winter season. YOU MUST REGISTER AS A TEAM.
It is not recommended that new players join for the first time during the spring season. It's best to join in the fall when teams are set up with more focus on players playing with players with similar skill sets and experience.
- This is mainly due to the fact that there are way less teams that play in the spring, so less divisions can be made out of the teams that join up.
- With an (8) week, (10) game season there is less chance of ensuring teams play against teams with similar skills and experience.
- Sometimes there are extreme blow outs in spring league and new players can become frustrated.
- In winter season, there are many more teams in each age group/division with more time involved to place teams appropriately and include two seeding rounds to ensure teams play where they fit as a team.
- For new players, the winter season tends to be the best case scenario for their own individual success, regardless of age.

Please note that as we are ABA Sanctioned, the $17 ABA membership fee is charged from ABA to anyone who signs up for one of our programs. This is something that both staff and players are required to have and covers their membership and insurance for the ABA Membership Season (which runs from September to August each year). If you have already paid this, it's not supposed to show up. But if it does, please contact ABA to explain where you already paid for this years membership and they'll be able to confirm that for you.
