Annual BYBA SkillsCompetition (Grades 3-4)
This year BYBA will be holding its skillscompetition for girls and boys on FridayMarch 2nd at the Chenery Middle School. Girls will run from 5:45pm to 7:15pm. Boys will run from 7:15pm until completion (approx 9:00pm). We hope the skills competition will be held this date. It may move if there is a conflict due to the 4th grade travel team playoff schedule. We will announce any changes through email and post them to the website.
This event is open to all BYBA participants in grades 3 – 4. Although it is called Skills Night, skill is not mandatory. This is a fun event with a side of competition. Children will only compete against players in their grade.
All players may participate in all events! Please note that if your child participates in the 2 on 2 events they may miss another event due to timing conflicts. Players can only win one trophy. If they compete and are the winner or runner up in the 2 on 2 event they must keep that trophy even if they win another event. Please ensure your players/children know this.
The four events are: 1. Hot Shots 2. Foul Shots 3. Ball Handling Lay-ups 4. 2 on 2 – players must be in the same grade and be on the same BYBA in-town team, please notify your coach ASAP of your participation.

BYBA IN-TOWN BASKETBALL PROGRAM
The In-town playoffs for grades 5-8 begin on Saturday, February 3rd and conclude with the championship games on Saturday, February 10th. The boys grade 5/6 and 7/8 semi-finals are on Friday night, February 9th.
All teams participate in the playoff and most teams that win their first game will play a 2nd game on Saturday. You can find the play-off brackets on your team page within our web site.
***Please Note: To avoid blow-outs and produce competitive games we do not do a traditional seeding in the early rounds of the playoffs. We have run the league this way for years and it has proven to be a succesful formula. By the time the semi-finals roll around, the #1 seed does play the #4 seed and #2 plays #3.***
Please be sure to check the play-off brackets closely.
Following the championship games, on Saturday, February 10th, at approximately 3:00pm we will be holding our annual Awards Ceremony. Trophies will be awarded for team champions/runner-ups and skills competition winners/runner-ups. All are invited to attend this event that will conclude our 2017/2018 in-town season for grades 5-8.
