Golden Youth Basketball Association

Golden Youth Basketball Association (GYBA) is a youth recreational/competitive regional basketball program for Golden-area boys and girls, Grade 2 though Grade 8. We compete in the Jefferson County Basketball Conference against teams from Green Mountain/Alameda, Bear Creek, Dakota Ridge, and Wheat Ridge. Some competitive teams within GYBA also participate in the Gold Crown Winter Competitive League, and have the opportunity to play teams from the entire Denver-metro area.

G.Y.B.A. is a non-profit Colorado corporation and is not affiliated with the Golden Community Center or Jefferson County Schools. We work with Golden-area elementary and middle schools and the City of Golden to secure court time for practices and games at a very affordable cost. All administrative work and coaching is done primarily on a voluntary basis. We need as much volunteer assistance from parents as possible to make the league successful.
