The Hollywood League

Lambda Basketball organizes our Holllywood League twice a year in the Spring and Fall with a ten week season and teams selected via a league draft.  The leagues costs around $115 to $155 per player and we use a reversible jersey each season which can be purchased for $25 if one is needed.

We moved away from our previous co-ed division to create both an All Gender Division and a Women's+ Division to offer our LGBTQ+ community and its allies a sporting space that they would feel most comfortable in.
