Summer Opportunities

Triton Youth Basketball is dedicated to providing a high-quality winter basketball experience for all students who live or go to school in Salisbury, Newbury and Rowley. TYB does not offer an independent summer basketball program. In the past, we have tried to match interested players with interested coaches for independent summer teams. However, the welcome growth in the amount of interested players has made this difficult to continue logistically, presents liability concerns, and has given rise to the perception that these are “TYB” programs when they aren’t.

 

Instead of TYB facilitating the creation of any actual teams, we have worked to ensure that interested players will have a no-cost way to continue to play basketball in the district this summer.

 

- Triton Girls Varsity Coach Dan Boyle will be hosting open gym from 6-8 on many Tuesdays and Thursdays this summer (actual dates will be posted) for all girls in grades 5-8 (using next year’s grade levels) to come and play at the High School gym. This will be relatively informal and players will get to play with different players each session (depending on the number of players that show up from week-to-week).

 

- Separately, TYB has reserved gym time from 6:30-8:00 Sunday evenings at Triton High School during July and August (actual dates will be posted) for boys’ open gym for grades 5-8 (using next year’s grade levels). This will also be relatively informal and teams will change from week to week (and possibly from game to game) depending on the players that show up.

 

Adults will be there to supervise all open gyms.

 

That being said, TYB is happy to assist as best we can with other summer basketball options:

1. We have provided information on our webpage under the tab “2015 Summer Leagues and Clinics” as to open local leagues and camps of which we are aware in case any parents want to independently organize teams or if any players want to participate in any leagues or camps. There are a good number of local opportunities already posted for teams and individual players!

2. If any parents want to coach and are looking for additional players to fill out a roster, TYB will place a notice on our Facebook Page with relevant contact information for the coach/team.

3. Answer any questions (as best we can) as to any leagues or camps that are being considered.

 

Finally we strongly encourage our players to participate in the THS week-long basketball camps hosted by Coach Clay and Coach Boyle and will continue to maintain the information on these Triton camps on our homepage (separate from the “2015 Summer Leagues and Clinics” tab)!

Summer Clinics - Boys

Boys Varsity Coach Dave Clay is pleased to announce the following:

 

Triton Boys Basketball will be hosting two Basketball Clinics this summer!

Time: 9:30-1:30

Where: Triton Regional High School

Grades: Current 4th-8th Graders (entering 5th-9th graders)

 

In this clinic players will learn all of the fundamentals of the game. Players will attend four fundamental stations each day run by current and former high school basketball coaches, each station stressing a different skill with drills to practice that skill. Each player will be placed on a team and have two games each day. Teams will be coached by current and former Triton High School Basketball Players.

When: August 10th-13th

Time: 10:30-1:30

In this clinic players will learn the skills it takes to be a productive and efficient offensive basketball player. Players will attend stations where fundamentals and moves are broken down and explained in detail. Players will then be able to apply these skills in 1 vs 1, 3 vs 3, and 5 vs 5 game play.

 

Jr. Viking Boys Basketball Clinic

When: August 10th-13th

Time: 9:00-10:30

Where: Triton Regional High School

Grades: Current K-3rd Graders (Entering 1st-4th graders)

 

In this clinic players will learn all of the fundamentals of the game. Players will attend fundamental stations each day, each station stressing a different skill with drills to practice that skill. Each player will be placed on a team coached by a current or former Triton High School Boys Basketball Player who will guide them during their games.

 

If you have any questions regarding the clinics please send your emails to . I look forward to serving your sons and helping them become better basketball players.

Conduct and Respect

Dear Parents and Players.

After weeks of tryouts and evaluations, all of our TYB teams have now been formed and the season is underway. Some teams have begun practices this week, with all teams in the gyms starting next week. This is a great time in the season, full of excitement, promise and opportunity.

Front and center with every youth sports organization is the need for RESPECT. At TYB, we take this very seriously and mandate that everyone involved with the program show respect for the players, coaches, parents, referees, other spectators, volunteers and the facilities where we have the privilege to play. Everyone needs to be aware of the guidelines that TYB has in place; on our website under “Policies” are both our Conduct Policy and our Player Protection Policy. Every player, parent, and volunteer is responsible for reading and reviewing these policies – we would encourage each family to review them together with their player(s). As stated in each policy, the failure to abide by these procedures can result in immediate dismissal from the program for the player/coach or the removal of the parent/spectator from a game or all future games.

Finally, please show respect for the schools and gymnasiums that we are fortunate to be able to use. Please leave them as you found them and pick up after yourselves when you leave. In particular, take all water/Gatorade bottles with you. Finally, no TYB invitee has any right to be in any other part of these schools other than the hallway, bathroom and gym. If people do not show respect for these schools, then we will lose the right to hold practices/games there and will have to shut down the program.

We are all here so that the players can have fun, develop some basketball skills, and, at the program’s best, learn a life lesson or two along the way. Let’s ensure those lessons are positive.

It’s all about RESPECT.

TYB
