Basketball Registration

Overview

Please read through these important details before registering for in-town or travel basketball. Registration links are at the bottom of the page. Please review additional updates on our COVID19 updates page.

At this time, MYBA will not offer programming for grades 1-4. We are looking at the possibility of a spring time program for these grades with improved weather and/or court time.

MYBA has limited availability for participants. Registrations will be capped and registration does not necessarily ensure availability. We will do our best to accommodate all kids that want to play but please understand we have limited resources available to us. If there are more registrations than available spots for in-town, a waitlist will be created. Travel basketball will have tryouts as necessary.

Participation fees are TBD.  Fees will be within a range of previous years fees. You will not pay during the registration process. Those participants selected for teams will receive payment instructions.

Participation in MYBA programming during the COVID-19 pandemic is a risk. Parents and guardians of MYBA participants as well as MYBA coaches take sole responsibility for their risk.

State, MYBA, or Metrowest guidelines could change without notice. The season could end at any time due to state guidelines or based on the discretion of the MYBA Board of Directors. Please review the refund policy below.

  • The MYBA has made the decision to limit the team size to 10 players per team.  
  • For tryouts 
    • If a player is unable to make the tryouts we will make a decision based on previous years play and coaches/coordinators feedback
    • If a player is not feeling well please do NOT come to the tryouts (see following Health Check information)
    • Tryouts will be held Saturday 11/21 and Sunday 11/22 at Kingsbury Club
