EAST MARIETTA BASKETBALL 2018-19 FAQ’s

10UB & 12UB

Welcome to the 50th season of EMBL!!! We are proud to be the largest and most successful Rec basketball league in all of Georgia!!

As a reminder….we have 2 levels of play in each age group…D1 and D2. D1 is 6 teams of 8 and is comprised of the top 48 players in the group as evaluated by the coaches. They are generally the bigger, stronger, and faster 5th and 7th graders respectively. D2 is every bit as competitive and contains 2 divisions of 10 to 12 teams each. Every effort will be made to insure each boy is properly placed and that the teams are as even as can be. We strive for total parity so as to insure a positive experience for every boy.
