The City partners with local youth sports organizations who oversee the community-based teams in the many neighborhoods in Knoxville.  The City's recreational youth basketball season is played in the winter (November-February) at rec center and school gymnasiums around the City.  Players are encouraged to participate with the local commission to build friendships and foster character-building activities while also developing athletic skills in the youth recreational basketball leagues.
