The LYBA (Lexington Youth Basketball Association) is a Winter Travel Team program for boys and girls, grades 4-8, that are residents of the Town of Lexington, Massachusetts. Emphasis is on skills and team play development. We want Lexington kids to love basketball!!!
Our season starts in September with Fall Clinics and Ratings Nights for boys and girls in the 4th through 8th grades. We also offer clinics for 2nd and 3rd graders. Teams are formed based on ratings, and coaches are named after the teams are formed. All grades may have an A, B, and C team, depending on the number of players registered. LYBA strives to place all registrants onto teams, but sometimes there are cuts. Eligibility is grade (not age) based, no exceptions.
First Practices are early to mid-November. First Games are after Thanksgiving, although sometimes teams have scrimmages before then. Teams will have 1-2 practices per week, on weeknights, and 1-2 games on weekends. Typically, teams will not play during school vacations, though some may elect to enter tournaments during the December holiday break and February vacation break. Season concludes in early March, typically with Playoffs and Tournaments.
Join some of Lexington’s top basketball coaches this summer for a fun basketball development program to improve basketball skills, leadership skills and build confidence on and off the court.
Lexington High School Head Coach Steve Solly (Licensed by USA Basketball as a "Gold-Level" coach, Named 2015-16 Division 1 North Coach of the Year) and Assistant Coach Adrienne Mugar (Former Professional Athlete and Boston University Captain) pride themselves on making this a truly transformative week. The program is challenging yet developmentally appropriate for 4th-8th grade girls to help increase confidence. This camp features detail-orientedbasketball skills and concepts as well as an exciting sports leadership curriculum on a daily basis.
The Lexington High School Boys & Girls Basketball Programs are sponsoring its first End of School Shooting Club. One of the beautiful things about basketball is that when you work individually to become a better player it also makes your team better. The goal of the Club is to help players develop the skills and confidence needed to succeed in game situations and to provide motivation to work on your game!
The time to get better is now! We challenge players in town of all levels to take (or make) Two Thousand Five Hundred (2500) game-like shots between Memorial Day and the end of school. That’s 125 shots for 5 days a week as well as a 5 min ball-handling workout! We believe this is a very accomplishable goal. So challenge yourself and your friends, improve your shooting and ball-handling along the way, and earn free GEAR if you complete the challenge!
The End of School Challenge runs from May 27th to June 20th
Players in grades 4-7 must take 2500 shots
Players in grades 8-11 must make 2500 shots
HOW DO I REGISTER - Just send an email (or have a parent send one) to Coach Hobbs (
