Keizer Youth Baskeball Association was started by Terry Williams, Larry Gahr, and other Keizer volunteers who wanted to provide a fun, safe environment for Keizer youth to learn the fundamentals of basketball.
Over the years, KYBA has expanded to include players from all over the Mid-Willamette Valley. During the early to mid 1990's, KYBA ran the most successful youth basketball tournament in the area. The tournament made a successful return in 2005 and has continued to be successful over the last eight years.
KYBA is governed and operated by a board of volunteers. To learn more about KYBA's leadership,please click here. KYBA regularly serves over 500 children during each season in grades one through eight. Our season runs from early November (first practices) to mid March (last week of games).
First through fifth graders are placed on a team for the season. Each season kicks off with a series of clinics to receive instruction on fundamentals and drills. Each team practices once a week throughout the season and will have a minimum of eight games.
Our fifth through eighth graders try out for competitive tournament travel teams (by grade). Those tryouts occur in late September to early October.
