REGISTRATION FOR THE 2019/2020 SEASON HAS NOW ENDED.

PYB 2019-2020 Season Update

Registration has now ended. Over the next month we will be rostering teams and reaching out to potential coaches. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.   

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. 

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!!!




COACHES' MEETING DATE

Coach volunteers - we will have a meeting for coaches on Monday, October 21 at Proctor High School.

Coaches for 1st and 2nd Grade Choo Choo teams will be asked to be there from 6:00 - 6:45.  We will discuss preferred practice dates, game days, practice focus, and other matters.

All other grades (3rd through 6th plus travel team 7th & 8th) will be asked to be there from 6:45 - 7:45. We will discuss preferred practice dates, Arrowhead scheduling dates, GNBL timing, and other  matters.

We expect the boys and girls varsity coaches to be on hand to speak to the group and share their thoughts.

Please enter through the Ugstad Circle doors, and turn left and walk to the end of the hallway to Teresa Nyberg's classroom.
