KYBA SEASON RECREATIONAL PLAY


Our Rec program is open to all boys and girls in grades 1st through 7th. The goal of season recreational play is to continue building children's basketball skills and knowledge in a fun and safe environment that will work to help them continue playing in high school. All paid participants will receive a jersey for the upcoming season. No official score will be kept until the children reach the 4th Grade. It is designed in this way to keep the focus on the fundamentals and sportsmanship of the game. Although an official score is kept from 4th - 7th grade, the primary focus is still on skill development of all players rather than the ending score (winning games at either the Rec or Tournament level is meaningless if you are not developing proper fundamentals and a positive approach to the game).

For our Rec Program, everyone makes the team. Individual evaluations are held for each Rec participant typically around mid-October. Evaluations are conducted in a group environment (by age group and gender) prior to team selection as we do our very best to offer an even mix of talent on each team. Historically, our Rec program has been offered to boys and girls in grades 1st through 5th. Last season (2013-2014) we expanded this program to include 6th grade and for the upcoming 2014-2015 season we are very excited to be expanding again to include 7th grade.

Teams are scheduled to be finalized by the end of October. You should expect to be contacted by your coach during the first week in November. Practices are expected to start around mid-November. Rec teams will receive a minimum of one practice per week and 8 games. All games will be held on Saturdays in Keizer. The first game is scheduled for January 10th. Schedules will be released by January 1st.

Requests

While we do try to accommodate all requests, we cannot guaranty this will be granted in all cases as our priority is to ensure parity amongst our teams. In order for your request to be considered, both families must each request that their children be paired with each other.
