SLYB Travel Basketball is offered to players looking to develop higher level basketball skills in a competitive environment. Travel basketball is available to boys and girls in grades 4th through 8th:
4th-8th grade boys from Kingston, Halifax, and Plympton.
4th-8th grade girls from Kingston only (league rules require Halifax and Plympton players to register with their respective town teams).
Registration opens in September and competitive tryouts for teams start in October and the season runs from October to March.  The fee is $250.  For new travel players or players that require an updated uniform there is an additional cost of approximately $50.  Uniforms can be used for multiple seasons.

Recreational Program

SLYB Recreational basketball is open to boys and girls in grades 1-8*.  The goal of recreational basketball is to develop skills in a less competitive environment than travel.  All on-time registrants will be guaranteed a spot on a team and teams will have an “equal playing” time rule.  All games and practices are played in Kingston.  Registration starts in September and the season runs from December to March.

If your daughter is interested in playing, they are invited to play through the Halifax rec program.
