How do I sign up to coach an HYBL team?

If you are registering a player, you can sign-up during registration   If you are NOT registering a player, please contact Paul Baitinger from the Board of Directors page


How do I get updates about registration and HYBL season information?

If you've previously registered or are registering now you will be automatically added to the email distribution list.  Otherwise, join our email list


What equipment or apparel do I need?

  • Jerseys are provided by HYBL, but should be returned at the end of the season unless you wish to purchase the jersey
  • Basketball Shoes (optional, but recommended for most divisions, except maybe Bitty Ballers and CoEd 1st Grade)
  • Basketball (See below for the size for your division) with your child's name on it 
    NOTE: There will be one ball per team provided at each gym, a first aid kit, pinnies, and a ball pump
  • Athletic shorts / shirt / socks
  • Water Bottle with your child's name on it!
  • Coaches should have a whistle and a whiteboard
    NOTE: Don't forget to collect your belongings and dispose of trash after practice!

How do I return a jersey?

Jerseys are collected at the last event for your team.  If you do not attend or forgot to turn your jersey in you should contact Paul Baitinger or Kevin Brooks from our Board of Directors page


How do I configure notifications for practices and games?

It is great that we can now pay on-line with credit card payment.  Is it secure?

In a word, yes.  Standard 128 bit encryption with SSL certification is used for totally secure communications.  Credit card data is passed through for processing and is never stored.

Does HYBL have a payment preference?

Yes, your use of our secure credit card payment feature significantly reduces the administrative burden of our volunteers.  On-line registration requires credit card payment exclusively.  For late sign-ups on tryout day checks are accepted but late fees are imposed for late signups.

Why does the HYBL no longer offer multiple child discounts as has been done in the past?

This was offerred in the past on a trial basis, but resulted in administrative and accounting problems with additional players being added after the initial registration and payment period, and also players dropping out after-the-fact.  Since all this work is done by unpaid volunteers we simplified the process by eliminating this feature.  We make every attempt to keep our families costs as low as possible.

Can I still sign up my child if I miss the registration deadline?

Everyone who registers on-line is guaranteed a roster spot on a team.  If you miss the registration period, you may still be able to register late online or come to the tryouts and register and pay on that day if there is no waiting list in your division, a late fee will be applied.  After the tryout day, it is up the Division Director's discretion whether to allow late entries and will depend on whether there are roster spots available.  You may be placed on a waiting list.

Are players required to attend every practice and game?  What about scheduling conflicts?

We certainly encourage 100% attendance, but understand there may be conflicts with other activities.  Players will not be penalized for missed time, however we encourage you to notify your coaches of anticipated missed time so they can plan accordingly.

What is the league policy on "extra" team practices?

The only sanctioned and HYBL insured team practices are those that will be officially scheduled in school gyms as part of the season schedule and posted on this website.  If your coach schedules additional practices outside of our official schedule at alternate sites such as on outdoor courts or in church or private gyms, they should be considered voluntary and HYBL assumes no risk or expense.  Coaches are not allowed to schedule extra practices at alternate sites assuming HYBL sponsorship or insurance "umbrella" coverage.

Why is my child's Division schedule not posted when other dvisions are posted?

Some schedules are more complex to put together depending on Divison size and gym availability.  If there is a long delay please contact your Division Director for an update.

Who do I contact about unsafe conditions or other issues about the gyms?

Contact HYBL's Director of School Facilities, contact information provided in our Contacts section.  Alternatively you can send us an e-mail via our Feedback feature.
