About us:

P.V's Youth Basketball Tradition for Generations on the Hill...

The non-profit neighborhood "just like its played in High School" youth basketball Association 

Since 1988


Born in 1988, like minded P.V families came together connected through their shared passion for the traditions of youth basketball.

Today, over 30 years since that very first practice it would have been hard to imagine back then that the PVBA would grow into the oldest legacy of youth basketball in Palos Verdes today.

31 years later, the PVBA continues to provide new and returning players with a legacy of safe, affordable, local with pro-level basketball program and clinics with Summer and Winter leagues. PVBA volunteers, families and friends are still connecting neighbors, school mates and families through traditional real life youth basketball, just like it’s played in High School, College and the Pro’s. 

The PVBA family of over 30,000 strong is forever grateful to all those who support and play such a special part in the PVBA's rich history and future. You Rock!

Today more than 3 generations of P.V families, fans and friends share the camaraderie of a community connecting through PVBA's youth basketball program.  In the Fall of 2019 begins the PVBA's 31st Winter Season!  Every child, every parent, every mentor, coach and fan within the PVBA family is inherently part of the PVBA. The legacy continues to this day with the new and returning teams soon once again to light up the local basketball courts throughout this coming PVBA 31st Winter Season.

PVBA runs a traditional youth Basketball program and reinvests talent within the community to provide FREE basketball skills clinics for young children using non-parent pro-elite coaches, coaching clinics and other resources to help children begin their journey with support along the way through to High School with the upper grade level players connecting with current High School alumni making their transition into High School as seamless as possible. 

Each sport prides itself in its own tradition. The PVBA is the place to immerse yourself in the language, pride, fun and pageantry inherent only to basketball.  The PVBA serves as the central place for kids of all skill levels to learn and play together through the excitement and great traditions of basketball.  


PVBA welcomes all children, all skill levels. Teams go from Kindergarten right the way through 8th Grade, including the "Challenger Program" for all children with special needs to come out to play.


The PVBA is an all-inclusive recreational youth basketball program. Everyone plays. For the fun of it and for those more serious, whose passion is to move on to playing in High School and beyond, the PVBA program mirrors that of real teams, 5 players versus 5 players with games played indoors on professionally maintained High School basketball courts, with real CIF certified coaches and even independent and objective score keepers at games.  Basketball hoops and ball sizes are always age appropriate. 


With more than 3 generations of children, coaches, mentors, families and fans who have passed through PVBA’s basketball courts of hallowed hallways the PVBA offers opportunities for players who "age out" after 8th grade with a place for them to come back and mentor current players through the exclusive PVBA Alumni Legacy Program.


Real Life Youth Basketball Experience.  Get ready for High School!  The PVBA provides a fun, competitive, engaging and importantly real-life basketball experience to take with them no matter where they go. For this reason and more, PVBA youth basketball is modelled the same as High School basketball and the Pro’s.


The PVBA’s mission: “To instill a passion, understanding and love of the game”.

It is the PVBA’s mission that each player will acquire a knowledge of basketball regardless of their level of future participation, so that they may understand, engage and hopefully love the game of basketball where ever and whenever their life and basketball connects.

  • The PVBA Goal; to continue to provide the central place for our P.V neighborhood community to come learn basketball the right way, unite and connect with friends and neighbors, make some new friends, be a player, be a fan... all through the excitement that is recreational youth basketball.
  • The PVBA Youth Basketball Program Mission; to connect our community, promoting lifelong connections for children and PVBA families through this youth sports program dedicated to supporting traditional youth basketball, the common values of good sportsmanship, character, teamwork and fair play.

The PVBA’s core values;  To provide an inclusive, interactive real-life basketball experience for all children, regardless of their skill set and experience and connect them with the great game of basketball and our community, for the rest of their lives.


PV Strong!  Always Local.  Stay close to home, always. The PVBA league is the Palos Verdes Basketball Association. Built in this community for this community.  Year-round opportunities to play in Summer and Winter Leagues and even holiday, Spring and Winter break Camps to enjoy.

A PVBA Exclusive! Unique to the PVBA, the League offers a “
Legacy” program for High School students to return to the PVBA, as a Student Mentor and Coach of their own youth PVBA team.  Staying connected is a PVBA legacy and now in its 8th year.


Legacy Matters:  The PVBA recognizes the value of our players who come back to coach and/or participate. These returning participates have a unique and personal insight, knowledge, direct experience and bond to pass along to new incoming generations of youth players. PVBA offers returning past players, returning parents and grandparents priority for open positions as a Coach and Student Coach whenever possible.  PVBA Alumni Opportunities:  8th Graders enter High school leave the PVBA with a familiar basketball skill set having already performed in a real team League model on the High School basketball courts as a PVBA player.
