Sign Up Nights and League Information
LYBA offers a recreational program for boys & girls in Grades 1 – 8, in which everyone makes a team. Grades 1 & 2, which play on Saturday morning, are primarily instructional in nature. Specifically, each one hour Saturday morning block dedicates 30 minutes to teaching basic basketball fundamentals (e.g., dribbling, passing, shooting), followed by a thirty (30) minute scrimmage vs. another 1st-2nd grade team. In addition, LYBA may periodically offer optional clinics for this age group on a weeknightduring the season to advance players’ skills & development. As for 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, and 7th & 8th grade, teams have one practice and one game per week with an official referee at each game. Optional weekly clinics may also be made available to 3rd & 4th grade participants as well. More information about the clinics will be provided in late November/early December. The season generally starts in early December and ends in early March.
LYBA also offers optional travel teams for Grades 3 – 8, which have an incremental fee in addition to the standard registration LYBA fee. Travel team players are selected through a try-out process in which LYBA utilizes independent evaluators. Travel try-outs are held in late October/early November. More information will be available at registration nights. The 2015/2016 LYBA registration fees will vary by grade. All LYBA reg. fees will be posted on the LYBA website (www.longmeadowyouthbasketball.org), as well as made available at the Longmeadow Parks & Rec Dept.
