The 2020 Fort Belvoir House basketball season got underway with spirited matchups between the installation’s youngest up-and-coming athletes, Saturday at Wells Field House.

The league, coordinated each year by Child and Youth Services, is comprised of young athletes who are learning the game and gaining the skills needed to compete on the Barracudas squads in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League. FCYBL, the next stage in Belvoir’s youth basketball program, has four age divisions: 5-6, 7-8, 9-11 and 12-15, each year.

While fun remains the focus in Belvoir’s House league, participants quickly discover the rewards of becoming better players and forging unit pride.

House league games are played on Saturdays at Wells Field House through April.
