General Policies

  • In house teams do not normally practice over Thanksgiving and Winter breaks because many players are away on vacation and the high cost of Gym rental. Travel  teams may practice depending on gym and coach availability.
  • Players are NOT eligible to play on MYBA teams if they are on an active roster for a HS or Mid Maryland team.
  • Playing time for MYBA teams should be as equal as possible unless there are disciplinary or injury issues.  **please contact the Basketball Program Director with any concerns**
  • We stress a POSITIVE coaching approach from all our coaches.  **please contact the Basketball Program Director with any concerns**
  • Every effort is made to accommodate special requests (coach or team preference, carpooling, etc.), but there are no guarantees.  There are 350-400 kids in the program on any given year.
  • Requests to move players up will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  The final determination is made by the MVAA Basketball Program Director, in consultation with parent/player, losing coach, gaining coach and others as necessary.  In general, players must have the physical, emotional and skill level necessary to compete at a higher level in order to be moved up.
  • Every effort will be made to re-schedule games and sessions cancelled due to weather, but sometimes reschedule is not possible
  • Safety of players is always first, with enjoyment of the game a close second.  Contact your coach, the Basketball Program Director or any MVAA Board Member with concerns.
  • WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!  If you are reading this, please consider volunteering your time to help.  Basketball knowledge NOT necessary, but certainly helpful.
