TYB is really excited to start the basketball season! This year we are concentrating on the basic skills for our youth players. Triton Youth Basketball is focusing on passing, shooting, dribbling, rebounding, and defending at the beginning of a player’s career so that when they advance to the next level of play they will be ready.
During the week, TYB will have weekly skills and drills clinics instead of team practices. At the clinics, the coaches will be running skills and drills as the teams rotate stations. We will have no more than four teams at each time slot. If your player cannot make their assigned slot, notify your coach and come to another slot.
Games on Saturdays will be officiated by the coaches. Times will be Saturdays at 1:15 pm for the boys and 2:45 for the girls at Triton High School Gym. Each team will have a 1/2 hour of practice followed by a 45 minute game each Saturday. We will start off playing 4 versus 4. The coaches will be calling double dribbling, traveling, blatant fouls, and other calls to get our players ready for the next level. We will also be keeping score at the games.
Another improvement will be a double elimination tournament at the end of the season for girls and boys with the coaches at the sidelines and real officials.
