Frequently Asked Questions 

Q:  What is the mailing address for Sudbury Youth Basketball?

A:  The mailing address is PO Box 887, Sudbury MA 01776.  Any registration checks would be sent to this address as indicated on your registration Email confirmation.

Q: Is there a discount on the registration fee if I have more than one child participating?

A:  Yes, the registration fee is waived for the fourth (4th) child being registered by a single family. 
 

Q: Can I request a specific coach?

A: No, due to the large number of participants and our commitment to balanced In-Town teams, we are not able to accommodate requests for specific coaches. 

Q: Can I request that my child be placed on a team with a specific friend?

A: No.  Again, due to the large number of participants and league rules, we are not able to accommodate requests for specific teammates.    Siblings of the same sex in the same division will be placed on the same team unless the parents request they are not placed together.  We encourage parents to reinforce with their children the value of making new friends and meeting children from other schools. 

Q: Is there a need for coaches?  If I've never coached before, does SYB provide some training for me?

A: YES, particularly at the Bantam and Cadet levels.  If you have any interest, please consider volunteering.  Even if your schedule doesn't permit volunteering as a head coach, please consider volunteering as an assistant.  This is a great way to help out while spending time with your child.   We have prepared a Coaches Manual as a valuable resource for new & veteran coaches.  

Q: I'm interested in coaching, how do I volunteer?

A:  When you are registering your child, check off the appropriate box under "Volunteer Opportunities" and remember to fill out the online Coaches Application afterwards. Once the registration process is complete, the Coordinator for your child's division will contact Head Coach volunteers to discuss your interest.  We do not "pair up" Head Coaches with Assistant Coaches until AFTER teams are made (see below).  

Q: If I volunteer to coach, can I specify my assistant coach?

A:  No.  Due to some past issues and the need to balance the teams, league rules do not permit this.  Head Coaches go into the team selection meetings without an assigned Assistant Coach and an effort is made during the selection of In-Town teams to identify an assistant coach for each team.  If you have any interest in volunteering as an assistant coach, please indicate your interest at the time of registering your child.



Q:  Do I need to purchase my uniform?

A:  For In-Town team players, you will need to purchase a reversible jersey.   Travel team players will need to purchase a uniform which can be worn during future seasons if your child continues to play travel.

 

Q:  What does the registration fee go towards?

A:  The registration fee covers all league expenses, the two largest being gym space and referees for each game.  SYB is a non-profit organization and all volunteers are not paid.  100% of the registration fee goes towards covering league expenses.

Q:  Who do I call if I have a question?

A:  Before the season begins, you can direct any questions to the appropriate league commissioner (Girls or Boys); contact information can be found on the CONTACTS page.  Once the season begins, you should contact your child's coach with any questions.
