Welcome to the 2013-14 LYBA Season!

Here, you'll be able to get news, information, rosters, schedules, traveling directions, and much more. Check back frequently for the latest information on our organization.

The LYBA (Lexington Youth Basketball Association) is a Winter Travel Team program for  boys and girls, grades 4-8, that are residents of the Town of  Lexington, Massachusetts.  Emphasis is on skills and team play development.  We want Lexington kids to love basketball!!!

Our season starts in September with Fall Clinics and Ratings Nights for boys and girls in the 4th through 8th grades. Teams are formed based on ratings, and coaches are named after the teams are formed. All grades may have an A, B, and C team, depending on the number of players registered.  LYBA strives to place all registrants onto teams, but sometimes there are cuts.  In the 2013-14 season, LYBA is faced with facility constraints that may not allow us to field C teams. 

First Practices are early to mid-November. First Games are after Thanksgiving, although sometimes teams have scrimmages before then. Teams will have 1i-2 practices per week, on weeknights, and 1-2 games (usually 2) on weekends. Typically, teams will not play during school vacations, though some may elect to enter tournaments during the December holiday break and February vacation break. Season concludes in early March, typically with Playoffs and Tournaments.          

SUMMER PROGRAMS
by posted 04/04/2014
 

Here at LYBA we are so proud of all our boys and girls teams this season and are already looking forward to next year. One of the best ways for developing players to build their basketball skills is to attend a basketball camp over the summer. Below is a list of some of our favorites. They are located nearby and combine teaching basketball fundamentals with a lot of fun for the kids. Let us know if you have others we should add to the list and please share your own experiences with us if you try them out. See you next season!
