Welcome to East Lyme Youth Basketball

ELIGIBILITY

The East Lyme Youth Basketball (ELYB) league is open to East Lyme and Salem resident boys and girls who will be in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Both new and experienced players are encouraged to join. It is recommended that you sign up early, as openings may be limited. The number of teams will be determined after the final registration date. A player who signs up after that date will be placed on a team if a roster spot is available in the appropriate league. If no spot is available, the player’s name will be placed on a waiting list. Registrants will be notified if they have been placed on a waiting list.

TRAVEL TEAMS (Optional to Players as Noted Below)

ELYB intends to organize travel teams for Boys and Girls in the 5th through 8th. If your child is eligible and interested, there will be special tryouts.  These dates will be posted here when finalized. Those not making the travel team will be placed on a recreational team. Those making the travel team will not participate in the recreational league. Please note that participation on travel teams is optional and will require more commitment, more fees (i.e. uniforms), travel to neighboring towns for some practices during the week and games on both Saturdays and Sundays. Please come to walk in registration to learn more about the travel teams and get your questions answered.
