Exciting changes are in store for the upcoming 2013-14 Comstock Youth Basketball League season; changes designed to provide Lyon County children participating in this program with an enhanced opportunity to learn the skills of basketball.
The cost of participation will be $45 for one player, $80 for two players from the same family, or $100 total for three or more from the same family. This low cost is reflective of the cooperative arrangement we enjoy with our Dayton Valley elementary schools and Dayton Intermediate School, which provide their facilities at no cost to the kids in our area as a service to the community.
In the 5th-6th and 7th/8th leagues we are going to standard basketball rules, with some minor exceptions. You can view the rules on this website in the HEADLINES box on the
right-side of this page.
Signups for the 2013-14 Season, which can be completed online or by downloading the Registration Form on our website, will run now through December 10. All players wishing to participate must have completed the registration process, paid applicable fees, and have returned a Comstock Youth Basketball League Player/Parent Contract before they will be allowed to participate in the Team Draft and be placed on a team.
This season, to provide players and coaches with more skill training opportunities, we will once again be conducting clinics for all registered participants for several weeks prior to Team Draft Day. Clinics will be conducted at Dayton Intermediate School between 6:00pm - 8:00pm. The League will also be providing coach clinics and officiating clinics. Player clinics will begin on November 18 and run through December 5. See below for a complete listing of clinic dates:
Monday, Nov. 18 (Grades 5-8)
Tuesday, Nov. 19 (Grades 3-4)
Wednesday, Nov. 20 (Grades 5-8)
Thursday, Nov. 21 (Grades 3-4)
Monday, Dec. 2 (Grades 5-8)
Tuesday, Dec. 3 (Grades 3-4)
Wednesday, Dec. 4 (Grades 5-8)
Thursday, Dec. 5 (Grades 3-4)
There is NO charge for clinic participation; however, you must have completed the registration process prior to participation.
Teams will be formed on Team Draft Day. Players who do not participate in the draft will be placed on a team by the League. The Team Draft Day schedule is as follows:
· Monday, December 9 6:00 - 7:00 PM 5th/6th Grade Division
· Wednesday, December 11 5:30 - 6:30 PM 3rd/4th Grade Division
· Wednesday, December 11 7:00 - 8:00 PM 7th/8th Grade Division
Team practices will begin in December following Team Draft Day, and continue until January 17. League play, which will consist of two games a week in the evenings at a Dayton area school, will begin on January 27 and conclude on February 27, 2014. A tournament for each age division will be conducted on February 28 and March 1.
K-2nd Grade Clinics
Six Saturday morning clinics will be conducted for kindergarten through 2nd grade students. The clinics will take place at Riverview Elementary School from 10:00-11:30 AM. Participants will receive a league T-shirt and a new youth-size basketball. Registration can be completed on the website or in person. Cost is $45.
