Golden Youth Basketball Association (GYBA) is a youth recreational/competitive regional basketball program for Golden-area boys and girls, grades 3-8. We compete in the Jefferson County Basketball Conference against teams from Green Mountain/Alameda, Bear Creek, Dakota Ridge, and Wheat Ridge. Some competitive teams within GYBA also participate in the Gold Crown Winter Competitive League, and have the opportunity to play teams from the entire Denver-metro area.
G.Y.B.A. is a non-profit Colorado corporation and is not affiliated with the Golden Community Center or Jefferson County Schools. We work with Golden-area elementary and middle schools and the City of Golden to secure court time for practices and games at a very affordable cost. All administrative work and coaching is done on a voluntary basis. Your registration fees go directly to the benefit of the players. We need as much volunteer assistance from parents as possible to make the league successful.
Cost (Gold Crown Teams): $315 in addition to the base GYBA fee
Registration Deadline: Monday, October 8th, 2018; late fee of $25 after October 8th, 2018
Tryouts: If your son or daughter wants to tryout they must register for tryouts during the registration process. Tryouts are for players 5th - 8th grade that want to play competitive basketball (Gold or Silver within GYBA).
Practices: Practices will begin the first week of November (Gold Crown teams may begin practices earlier based on the Coach's preference). Each team will typically receive a minimum of one practice per week and (depending on game schedules) will often get two practices per week. Coaches will request their practice time and location based on available gym time.
Games: JeffCo League games are played from the Pomona to Columbine/Chatfield areas. Gold Crown Competitive League games are played throughout the Front Range. See below for more information.
Uniforms: Every team must have matching uniform. If you do not have a uniform, you must purchase a uniform for $50.
Refunds: A $20 fee will be charged for any player withdrawing prior to the registration deadline. Requests for refunds must be in writing, and sent to G.YB.A. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED AFTER NOVEMBER 1st FOR ANY REASON.
