The Swampscott-Nahant Youth Basketball Association and the LVO YMCA are joining together to operate and manage the SNYB 2016-2017 Boys and Girls Winter Basketball Travel League. All boys teams grades 5-8 will participate in the 2016 Eastern Basketball Travel League and all girls teams grade 5-8 will participate in the 2016 North Shore Girls Travel Basketball League. Players are required to travel to surrounding North Shore communities for away games and a serious commitment is required. All skill levels are welcome!
"This is an equal play time league. When multiple teams are needed due to sufficient numbers teams will be of equal/mixed ability. There are no A/B teams at any level. In an effort to be fair and provide the best experience possible for your child(ren) SNYB will have wait-lists for the 2016-2017 season. Teams will be capped at 12 players each, with a minimum team size of 10. So, a waitlist will be created after the first 12 players sign up, then two teams will be created at 20 kids, with 4 more open spots. If we reach 30 a 3rd team will be created and again 6 more spots will be opened until we cap at 36, etc. We will notify you as soon as we have sufficient numbers for another team. If you have any questions about the process/policy please email David St. Pierre, Sports Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
Uniforms: Each player that registers will receive a uniform covered by the registration fee that they will keep. When registering each parent should identify both their childs anticipated jersey and short size. Uniforms will be ordered when registration closes on Sunday October 30th so please make sure you ordered the appropriate size for your child. The LvO Front Desk will have both the uniform sizing chart and a sample uniform available to try on at any time during open LvO facility hours.
