I have two Gmail labels, "Basketball" and "Student Council". My question is this: How do I make both of these labels into sub-labels of another label, "Extracurricular"?

Go to Settings (the cog wheel in the upper-right corner) → Labels → click Edit for the respective label → click Nest label under and select the respective label under you wish to nest it (“Extracurricular” in your case) → click Save. Of course, you should create the “Extracurricular” label first.
