Welcome to the Northside Basketball League (NBL) website! We are starting our 10th season of providing basketball game play for Chicago girls & boys ranging from 4th through 8th grade. We will enjoy 10 levels of play this year with over 1300 kids! Our focus on fair, fun, competitive play - along with our emphasis on community service participation for all the children is the "essence" of our mission at NBL.

Game play for our 2017 season will run from January 9th through April 2nd, 2017. There are optional pre-season clinics and tournaments, based on availability by grade level, and community service opportunities that may begin as early as November 2016.
