Is there anything worse than going to every single game knowing that your team has a very little chance of winning?  At Shea’s YBA, we make a concerted effort to make each team as even as possible.  We attempt to reach this goal by hosting a “Draft” prior to the beginning of each season.  All registered players are expected to attend the draft each year.

2017 Draft – Saturday, December 2, at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center

Grades 7 & 8 – From 5:00 PM–6:00 PM

Grades 9 & 10 – From 6:00 PM–7:00 PM 

Please arrive at least 15 min. early for registration

Each player will need a parent to go inside and register them by filling out paperwork prior to the draft.  Participants who have completed their community service prior to the draft will not be required to make a payment or leave a deposit.  Players who have not completed their community service will be required to leave a $50 deposit that they can be refunded once their service has been completed.

Draft3Each player receives a number pinned to the front of their shorts.  They will be asked to perform certain fundamental drills, followed by pickup games so that the coaches can evaluate the talent level.  At the conclusion of the draft, coaches will proceed to a secluded room to pick teams.  Players will find out what team they’re on and who their teammates and coaches are, the following day (Sunday, December 10) at the “Beyond Basketball” initiation event.
