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.
Metrowest Playoffs Starting!!!
Our first season in the Metrowest Playoffs is upon us!!! Please visit the website to see your bracket.
Go to the Tournament tab. Then select 2013-14 Season, and Select your Team based on Group. You may have to do a little trial and error to find your bracket--we are in the North brackets. In general, your Group will be 1-2 below your Division (ie if you were in Division 4, odds are you're in Group 5). Reason for this is that brackets tend to have fewer teams than Divisions did.
