With the basketball season upon us we wanted to communicate our philosophy on Second Teams. The MYBA's overall objective is to provide as many players as possible the opportunity to play basketball at a highly competitive level. Our coaches focus on skill development, teamwork, and good sportsmanship while maintaining a fun and exciting connection to the Daniel Hand High School Girls and Boys Programs. It is always our intention to field as many teams as we can each season within the constraints of severely limited gym space.
To insure that everyone is aware of the criteria on having Second Teams please see below.
The decision on whether or not we will have a Second Team for any grade is driven by the following criteria: 1. Finances 2. Gym Space 3. The number of potential players in each grade and 4. The ability of the Second Team to compete in league and tournament games.
The decision on Second Teams will be made at the conclusion of all tryouts by the MYBA board. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give me or any other MYBA board member a call.
The dates and times for this year's MYBA tryouts have been set and we can't wait to see you all at Polson! Coach Rossi and his staff/players will be running the boys tryouts, while Coach Tredwell and his crew will be running the girls.
Parents must register ahead of time and players should bring a water bottle. Balls will be provided by the coaches.
If you have any questions regarding tryouts, please contact Steve Lutz (VP of Boys) at SLutz@Maybelline.com or Randy Howe (VP of Girls) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to also register your child for the Rec tryouts in case s/he does not make a travel team. Rec registration closes on 9/25 and the form must be submitted at Town Campus (Beach & Rec).
The travel teams will be posted no later than Sunday October 19th at 8:00 PM.
If this is your first time, please be sure to read up about our travel program and to talk to families that have experienced it before deciding to participate. The MYBA supports the development of individual players in a highly competitive environment and as experienced moms and dads know, the emphasis during the winter is on "travel"!Teams typically practice once or twice per week, participate in 2-3 tournaments and play 25+ games in a season.
