HERMISTON BASKETBALL CLUB OFFERS TWO
DIVISIONS OF YOUTH BASKETBALL
- Hermiston Youth Basketball Association. This is the
recreational program that has been around Hermiston for
decades! It is open to all Hermiston boys and girls grades
3rd-6th. 3rd & 4th graders are randomly placed on teams. 5th
& 6th grades players attend a tryout and are placed on teams
with a "draft" type system. ALL CHILDREN THAT WANT TO PLAY
HYBA ARE ALLOWED - NO ONE IS CUT FROM A TEAM. Each season,
HYBA will have signups in mid-late November and early
December. Coaches will have a meeting in late December or
early January. Practices will be twice per week beginning in
mid-January. Games will be held every Saturday (all in
Hermiston) beginning in late January. Keep watching facebook
and our website for registration dates. We will supply HYBA
teams with everything they need for the season: gym time,
uniforms, equipment, game schedules, referees; the entire
package is provided for you. We are always seeking coaches
and volunteers to help with this program; please contact us
if you are interested.
- Our club currently has about 20 AAU teams. AAU teams are
often times more competitive than HYBA teams; an AAU team
typically requires greater time commitment from the players
and parents. Hermiston hosts four AAU basketball tournaments
per year that our teams, along with out of town teams,
participate in. Hermiston AAU teams usually also travel to
many tournaments out of town. Each Hermiston AAU team will
make their own decisions on how many tournaments to attend
and how far to travel. Those decisions are up to the coach
and parents of each team. Teams may join the club as a
complete team OR they may come to us with a coach and one or
two players. In that situation, we will help organize a
tryout to help the coach find more players for the team. Our
club will supply each AAU team with: 3 gym practice times
per week; balls, ball bag, first aid kit, uniforms, AAU
cards and $150.00 in tournament allowance per season. Teams
may also choose to purchase their own uniforms. The club
also offers many opportunities for AAU teams to earn money
for tournament entry fees by working at the tournaments we
host. AAU teams really make their team decisions as a team,
the club offers support in any way we can; but because of
the level of commitment required from families, we feel it
is up to each team to set their own schedules and team
guidelines. Often times players will come to us looking for
a team if there is an established team looking for a
player in that players age group we are happy to connect the
two. In the case where there are no open teams, we will put
the player on a list and contact them if a coach becomes
available. We do our best to place as many players as we
can; but not every player will be placed on an AAU team. We
need more coaches to volunteer, if you are interested in
coaching a competitive, traveling AAU team, please contact
