The Germantown Hills Athletic Association is dedicated to the development of our youth thru athletic programs designed to “teach” sportsmanship, team play, discipline, and responsibility.  The Coaches and the Association members are volunteers donating their time and effort for the betterment of our youth.

Travel Basketball is for all children who are in 3rd up to 6th grade. Registration will open soon for the 2022 season. Sign up to be notified HERE.

If you are volunteering to Head Coach your child's team, you can skip paying your child's fees, as your child will not be charged.  We also have 3 new positions that parents can volunteer for, which will also get the benefit of waived fees.  These positions are referee coordinator, field set up and tear down, and sponsorships/shirts.  Please indicate your interest in the volunteer space of the registration form. You can also contact us HERE.
