In-House basketball was introduced in 1995 as a basic skill and drill program for youth ages 3 to 12 years old. In 1996, Junior Kemp created the Midget and Junior Basketball Leagues. Both leagues have been extremely successful over the years housing great talent from Lyons, Newark, Clyde, Sodus, Williamson, North Rose Wolcott, Geneva, Waterloo and Phelps.
