Update on Youth Basketball

The City of Dixon will be hosting a National Academy of Athletics Hoop Group Basketball Program (Program) and camps. The camps will be help during school breaks on November 21-23 and December 27-30. The Program will be held on Saturdays from January 14 to March 4. The goal of this Program is to develop skills rather than function as a competitive league. Registration will open in October. 

Dixon Youth Basketball (DYB), a parent-run organization, plans to host a basketball league this winter. This league is not associated with the City. The City gave permission for DYB to use the name and logo previously associated with the City’s competitive league. 

The City does not own or operate gymnasiums. The City utilizes Dixon Unified School District gymnasiums through a joint-use agreement. When the City does have a facility to offer, such as baseball fields or the aquatics center, we partner with an organization by forming a Memorandum of Understanding. 

As discussed with DYB, the City does not have gymnasium space to offer. If the City opted not to run a basketball program, an alternative indoor winter recreation program would be offered. The City does not see a conflict with DYB and hopes that the two programs can coexist and provide residents with a broader basketball experience.
