LYA Basketball Commissioner: Jeff Gardner,


Youth Basketball is available to both boys and girls through LYA.  The season runs from mid-November through the end of March.  Games are held in local school and other gyms.


League Descriptions:

Rookie programs (for girls and boys in grades 2-3) include:  1) instructional leagues that focus on fundamentals and basics of basketball and include games against other teams, and 2) weekly clinics that are designed to be an introduction to the game. Emphasis is on basic skills, rules, and fundamentals of basketball. Clinics run one hour per week on the weekend.

Children in grades 2-3 can enroll in either the regular LYA league or the clinics, but optimal benefit will be gained by registering for, and paying for, both.

Older leagues (for girls in grades 4-8 and boys in grades 4-12) are more competitive leagues and use PIAA certified referees.  These leagues have tryouts for team equity and end their seasons using a playoff format.
