Now that ELYB season is in full swing we ask that everyone please familiarize themselves with the rules of facilities we are using.  As you know the use of the various Gyms throughout the town is the lifeline of our program and a loss or the use of any facility would be devastating.  Below is the usage information for our facilities. 

Thank you,

ELYB Board Members


ELYB Facilities Usage information

East Lyme High School

On the night that Youth Basketball will be using the ELHS Gyms the only entrance will be through the glass doors to the lobby of the Athletic wing.  No students are to be in any other part of the school.  If they are found wandering in other parts of the school by security, they will be ask to leave the building.  We are having this issue with other programs in the school. 

Also the bleachers are not to be pulled out during practices.  The EL Chairs on the racks in the North Gym are also off limits.  Chairs are not allowed in the N. gym due to the damage they can do to the gym floor. (we only allow 2 chairs in the N. gym).

No food is allowed in the North or South gym.  Drinks only.

Flanders School

We have received complaints in the past from the Flanders staff regarding bouncing basketballs in in the hallways and throwing balls off the walls and ceiling when waiting to practice.  Parents, players and Coaches need to ensure this does not happen as use of the gyms is the life line of our program.  If you see someone not following the rules please coach them, it does not matter if it is not your child or a kid on a different team we all need to share in this responsibility as it affects all of us.  Additionally, if you practice at 6:00 pm please do not arrive early and loiter in the halls or enter the gym before 6:00 pm.  This it a distraction to the after school programs and has been the cause of many issues in the past.  It does not matter if the gym is empty, we do not enter until 6:00 pm.

 Food and beverages are not permitted in Gym (only water)

Niantic Center School

Gym usage is contingent upon portable basketball hoops being returned to their positions in the corner of the gym each evening.  This has been an ongoing problem in the past.  The hoops are extremely heavy and our custodian is unable to move them himself the next morning.  If the hoops are not returned each evening, Parks and Recreation will not ve allowed to use the Niantic Center School gym.  Also, siblings of children who are practicing are to remain in the gym with the adults.  They are not permitted to run around the hallways unsupervised.  We trust you will be respectful of our school and adhere to the above conditions.

Food and beverages are not permitted in Gym (only water)

Niantic Center School Staff.
