The Warren Youth Basketball Association (WYBA) organizes both Recreational Youth Basketball and a competitive Travel program in Warren. The primary objectives of the Recreation program are to:
Have fun (children and adults)!
Teach and practice the ideals of sportsmanship;
Teach and learn how to play as part of a team;
Teach and learn the game of basketball, and grow in skill level and self-confidence;
Inspire our children to participate in this healthy group activity.
Recreational Team programs will normally run from December through March. Each team will consist of approximately eight players. The recreational program is a “fun” league with less emphasis on being competitive than the travel program, and is geared towards maximizing participation, learning, and fun as opposed to winning every game. The recreational program for this year will include the following grades:
Recreation Basketball (Boys and Girls grades 3 through 8)
On-line sign-up for Recreation Basketball will open during the month of October and must be completed by no later than November 10. All recreation players will be required to attend one of the assessments periods for their grade to ensure the fair selection of teams. Evaluations will be held during the period November 11 – 19. Games will be played on either Friday night or Saturday mornings from early December through the beginning of March. Team practices are one evening per week, Mondays through Thursdays. Specific practice and game times depend on age group, and will be distributed after teams are selected. Registration is now open.
