How to schedule practices

Head coaches: Please provide scheduler with 1 designee that can book practice time for your team in the event you are unable. Only the head coach or his/her designee will be allowed to book gym space. Gym space is allotted to ETYB by the Edison Board of Ed through the Edison Recreation Department. The amount of practices allowable per week, is contingent on the availability of gyms.

For the 2019-20 season and for seeable future, gym space has been limited due to the closure of Stelton Community Center. With the closure, Edison Recreation is now using schools that have been used by ETYB in the past.

 Reading the schedule grid:

1.         The names of available schools are printed across the top.  Each school has 1 full-court (2 half-courts) available, except for Woodrow Wilson Middle School (6 half-courts), John Marshall (3 full small courts), James Monroe (2 half courts)

-          n/a means not available for practice or games.

-          o means 1 practice slot is available

-          o - o means 2 practice slots are available

-          o - o - o means 3 practice slots

-          assigned practice slots are designated by team numbers

    examples: 12 - 52 means team #12 and team #52 are booked.

                    24 - o   means team #24 is booked, and 1 slot is still available

-          assigned game slots are prefixed by a division code (eg. B 12-16)

-          assigned playoff slots are prefixed by a double letter division code (eg. AA 1 – 4)

-          * indicates a make-up game

-          (  )  indicates a cancelled game.

 2.         Booking practices:

e)    Email the scheduler and it will be updated on the website with the switch

f)    Keep division coordinator informed of the game schedule change.
