Hello Parents and Coaches,
EYBA is planning a “more normal” winter season. We will be opening registration Friday December 4, 2020 and closing registration on Friday December 18, 2020. The season will start February 1, 2021 and run until around May 8, 2021. This may cause some issues for our multi-sport players. The EYBA has said only one sport cohort is allowed. Any player planning on a spring sport like baseball, lacrosse, etc. would not be able to play winter basketball. Please consider this before registering your child.
The winter season will look more normal than fall. There will be 8-9 regular games played (tentatively) on Friday’s or Saturday’s with 2-3 rounds of re-seeding. We’ve been able to secure some practice time at the Beaumont Recreation Center for the winter as well; expect practices to be held there. There are still no spectators allowed at the Saville Center but players will only have to stay for their game time slot.
The cost for this season is $250. At this time, EYBA has only allowed us the same teams we had registered for fall. We will open registration for levels U11-U18 but we may only be able to submit 4 teams for play. If a waitlist fills up, we will find out if more slots are available for other teams. We will keep parents informed as registration progresses as to the status of teams.
Thank you again for all your understanding while we navigate this season during covid-19. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or any board member.
