The Detroit PAL House Basketball Championships took place on Saturday, April 16th. The House Basketball program at Detroit PAL has grown tremendously since 2015! The partnership with the Detroit Pistons and the Detroit Recreation Department has helped PAL serve more boys and girls through basketball programming. The record year saw 900 participants! This was more than double the total of 430 from the previous year. In 2016, Detroit PAL also added a new division: the 15 and under division. This helped PAL increase the league from 26 teams to 96 teams!
The Championship event was packed full of entertainment with five different divisions competing for the first place trophy! Each and every participant worked hard and worked together as a team to fight for the championship. In the end, the winners were:
8U Champs – Jammers
10U Champs – Motor City Chargers
12U Champs – Motor City Chargers
14U Champs – Bulldogs
15U Champs – Westside Cubs
Congratulations to all of the House Basketball participants on a great 2016 season! As House Basketball continues to grow, please keep up with the Detroit PAL website for more information on upcoming opportunities.
