All children who are registered during the online registration period for HYBL will be placed on a team.
The player evaluation process gives the coaches and HYBL division directors the opportunity to watch each child perform basic basketball skills. We strive to create competitive teams and parity within each division. These evaluations assist us in moving toward this goal. Players may play up in a higher age group if the Director approves, but we do not allow players to play down with younger players unless approved by the HYBL League President.
Our goal is 9 players per team in the summer, 8 per team in the winter. However this a "goal" only and will depend seasonally on the number kids who sign up per division, number of coaches, etc..
Each team will have only one head coach who will attend the tryout and draft sessions. A parent of a child on the team roster may then be named as an assistant coach.
A reminder to ALL COACHES, PARENTS, and PLAYERS - HYBL is intended to be a fun, developmental recreational league! While it is certainly more enjoyable to win the game, we hope all participants share our belief that the development of skills, character, and friendship is more important. We ask all participants, parents, and spectators to please “keep things in perspective” and show good sportsmanship.
We would also like to thank all the coaches who volunteer their time to work with all of our children. We hope everyone has a great season. Should you have any questions or feedback, please contact the appropriate division director. Thank You!
We thank the Hanover school administration for their support and use of their facilities! We also would like to Thank the Hanover Parks and Rec Department for their help and support in this effort. Parents and players, please take the time to Thank the school staff & P&R staff when you see them.
