CAPO DANA NJB is a local Basketball league for Kindergarten through 8th grade Boys and Girls in the Capistrano area. We have a "first come", "first serve" policy. We will have a waiting list for each division once the teams are full. Our league includes Capistrano Beach, Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano and Laguna Niguel (Zip Codes: 92624, 92629, 92675 and 92677).
The season starts on the first weekend of December and runs thru late February for the Divisional Players. All-Stars will be done by the first weekend of April. The Rookies will be done by mid-February. The Rookie program will be on Saturdays. The Divisional teams will start practicing the first week of November and games will be either Saturday or Sunday depending on gym availability. Girls play inter-league, so they will play against other local NJB leagues and travel to their gyms. Please check back for any updates or new announcements.
