Welcome to Connecticut Basketball!

The Connecticut Basketball Conference also known as Connecticut Basketball is formerly the Connecticut Shoreline/Valley Conference.  It teaches winning habits to girls and boys (grades 4th-8th), as well as, high school (grades 9th-12th) players from across Connecticut.

Connecticut Basketball serves as the governing body for its member teams, clubs and organizations for its Travel Basketball League (year round) and High School League (fall and summer). 

As part of Connecticut Basketball's strategic partnership with Vale SportsPlex, its AAU teams (formerly the Connecticut Academics) now play as the Vale AAU/Premiere Basketball Club.  Starting in 2018, this partnership will also support Connecticut Basketball's adult league

Connecticut Basketball's primary mission is to educate and encourage the growth of basketball and firmly institute the ideals of good sportsmanship, discipline and teamwork.

Connecticut Basketball helps:

  • feed the hungry--through its Thanksgiving Food Drive;
  • provides clothing to the poor--with its Holiday Clothing Drive;
  • offers aid to the sick--through its annual Coaches Versus Cancer initiative. 

In short, our League is about teaching winning habits and getting young people prepared for life!

We look forward to seeing you on the court.

Keep rebounding!
