Parent Letter
by LeagueAthletics.com posted 08/09/2017


Dear Parent:
 


Welcome to Scarsdale’s youth travel basketball program for 2017-18. We look forward to another great season.

Scarsdale Youth Basketball (SYB) is a competitive travel program. Tryouts are open to all 5th through 8th grade boys and girls who live or attend school in Scarsdale. Our basketball teams compete in the Tri-County Basketball League (TCBL) and play against teams from other organizations in Westchester and neighboring counties. At each grade level, SYB sponsors four 10-player teams, two boys and two girls. The program is designed to give the children a fulfilling athletic experience. Sportsmanship, teamwork, skills training and development, conditioning, and strategy are program goals.
 


Tryouts begin Monday, September 18th. To register for tryouts, please go to scarsdaleyouthbasketball.org and click on the “Register Now” tab. Refer to our website calendar for the complete tryout schedule for your child’s grade. Check the website often as schedules may change. Each tryout will be run by two to three independent evaluators consisting of present and former high school coaches, referees, and trainers. Final team selection will be based primarily on tryout results; however, prior season SYB performance is also taken into consideration where applicable. The SYB age-group coordinators will be on hand to act as facilitators in order to help the independent evaluators run a smooth tryout. With the exception of the facilitators, parents will not be permitted in the gym during the tryouts.  All evaluators will be provided with detailed guidelines of fairness and will follow a standardized tryout protocol.  There will be three tryout sessions for each boys team and two tryout sessions for each girls team; players must attend all tryouts. There is no cost for tryouts. 

For 5th Grade, we will create two balanced teams, a Maroon Team and a White Team.  Our 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade teams (boys and girls) will be separated into an “A” Team and a “B” Team. SYB has hired a talented and experienced group of professional coaches to coach our teams.  Coaches were selected after a formal evaluation process led by our coaches committee and approval by our board of directors.
 


Each team will have two practice sessions per week.  One practice will be a team practice, and one practice will be a skills session with the A and B teams combined for each grade (or in the case of 5th Grade, the Maroon and White teams combined).  Please check back on our website before tryouts for the practice days and times for your child’s age group.  The season begins with practices during the week of November 6th and concludes with playoffs, typically the first week of March.

Players who make a team must treat the commitment seriously. We expect that SYB will be each child’s primary sports commitment during the basketball season. All practices will be held at House of Sports (Ardsley). Home games will be held primarily in the Scarsdale Public Schools. Away games will take place in locations determined by the other team and are typically within a 30 minute driving distance from Scarsdale. Please refer to our website for the "Player Commitment Policy."  
 


SYB is a not-for-profit corporation that has been approved by the Parks, Recreation and Conservation Committee to sponsor a youth sports program in Scarsdale. All costs for this program are borne by its participants. The cost of participation in the 2017-18 season is $1275 (plus $15 for electronic check payments or $45 for credit card payments). There is an additional fee for uniforms for those players who do not have one from last year.  SYB provides confidential financial assistance to those families for whom the costs would preclude participation. 
 


The SYB Board and its committees will continue to strive to make the program fair, objective, and fun for all children and parents.  We welcome your participation, comments, and suggestions, and we appreciate your support.
 

We look forward to another successful season.
 


Sincerely,  
 


Scarsdale Youth Basketball, Inc.
