Updated GYB info

A few updates from GYB.


  1. First week of skills and drills was a HUGE success. We had over 100 kids attend as well as really high coach attendance. We want to thank all the parents who took the time out of their weekend to bring their son or daughter up. All of the kids worked extremely hard while also being very respectful to all our coaches. Also a huge thanks to the coaches for making themselves available whether it be to gather new information or to assist in the workout. Lastly a big thanks to coach Brandon Baker for being a part of the practice and and to coach Wake for making the gym available for our use. The schedule for the rest of the year is posted below.


2. We are currently forming our 7th and 8th grade recreational teams. The deadline to sign up is Thursday November 8th.


3. We've received numerous inquiries of people looking to make donations to Goshen Youth Basketball. We have created an option that will allow you to do that. Donations will go towards equipment, extra game fees, extra gym time, possibly tournaments, etc. Thanks to all that donate!!

Please share. Please direct anyone interested to the registration page on the Goshen Youth Basketball website.

4. Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball (CPYBL) is the name of the league we will be competing in. Please visit their website to learn more about how the league works.


5. If your child is playing basketball with GYB this year the following waiver MUST be completed in order to play. You were prompted to do this when you registered but in case it was over-looked I have made it available here. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THIS ASAP. THIS WILL ALLOW THE COACHES TO STOP HARASSING YOU TO GET IT DONE.

6. Lindsay's law is law put in place in Ohio to be sure parents were informed on the issues surround Sudden cardiac arrest. There is a video and handout you are required to watch along with your child in order to play for GYB. Here again this info was presented to you at the time of registration however in case it was missed I have made it available here.

7 .An early heads up: On January 5 the Goshen boys and girls varsity team will be playing in the same gymnasium where the classic movie Hoosiers was filmed. Game times are girls at 4:30 and boys at 6.


8. New rule this year: If a parent gets suspended from a game that parents child is suspended the same amount of games. We need our parents on their best behavior.


9.. Many people have asked about our Sunday night skills and drills program. We do hope to run the program again this year. Dates and times will be announced in the future.


10. The past weekend our varsity basketball staff put on an hour long coaches clinic for our youth coaches. We had a great attendance and believe all coaches got something from the time spent there. A big thank you to the varsity staff.
