PYB 2019-2020 Season Update

Registration is now open (CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE) for the 2019/2020 basketball season and will run through Friday, October 4.  Any registrations after this date will be subject to a late fee or not permitted.  

We will provide updates to the season here on the front page of the website as we prep and move through the season. 

We currently expect to offer travel teams at 5th, 6th, and 7th grade for both boys and girls, and also 8th grade boys. Tryouts will be October 6, and travel practices will start in mid-October. Arrowhead basketball (3rd - 6th grade non-travel) and Choo Choo practices will start the week of November 11, and games will not begin before Saturday, December 7. 

Please consider coaching when you register your kids. Each year it is a challenge to find enough parents to meet our coaching needs. The Board and HS Coaches are here to help you with ideas and resources. 

We are excited to have the kids in the gyms again!


Wondering what to bring to practice?

1st and 2nd grade:  Water bottle and tennis shoes. At this level, the kids use a size 27.5 ball. All 1st and 2nd graders that sign up within the original registration window will be provided a ball. 

3-6th: Water bottle and tennis shoes. Boys and girls use size 28.5 balls.

7th and 8th grade travel: Girls use size 28.5, boys use size 29.5.

All grades:  Positive attitude and strong work ethic!!!



Travel Team Information

Tryouts for all travel teams will be held on  Sunday, October 6 during the times listed below at the PHS main gym.  We will split the gym during each time block.

We will  speak with parents at the start of the tryouts for each time block. Please plan accordingly.

3:30 - 5:00 (6th and 7th Grade girls/5th Grade girls)

5:00 - 6:30 (5th Grade Boys/6th Grade Boys)

6:30 - 8:00 (7th Grade Boys/8th Grade Boys)

4th grade players  who have an interest and believe they may have the skill set will be allowed to participate in the 5th grade tryout. If you have an interest, please contact Kyle Gustavson  HERE  so that we can gather your information and provide additional details as necessary.  Any "players playing up" will be approved by the board in advance of joining a team, and will contemplate both the individual and the travel team needs.
