Glencoe Youth Basketball 2020

Glencoe Youth Basketball 2020

September 13, 2021 

Hello Glencoe Youth Basketball Families!

I am excited to announce that we will be having a full, regular season this year for our basketball program. This means we will have our Glencoe Select Teams, grades 5th thru 8th, and Little Dribblers this year.

We will be sending out registration links this week for both of these programs.

Some key dates to keep in mind:

  • Coaches need to apply by the end of September to coach one of our Select Teams. We need coaches to apply, even if they have coached in previous seasons. Application to be sent this week.

  • We plan on running a Fall Skills Camp again, which our high school coaches will run. This is planned to start on Sunday, October 10th.

  • Tryouts for the girls and boys Glencoe Youth Basketball Select Teams will be the week of November 1st.

  • Little Dribblers will start in January 2022.

As a Board of Directors, we are still working through some logistics with programs like Little Dribblers, as we want to support as many families and kids as we can, while doing so in a fun, safe way.

Please be on the lookout for more information coming out soon.

Roll Tide!

GYB Secures Grant Funding to close participation Gap between Boys/Girls

Glencoe Youth Basketball, in partnership with the Hillsboro School District, secured grant funding to provide introductory basketball skills in a fun and active program at several of Hillsboro's lower socioeconomic schools. Participants in the programming will be provided opportunities to also join Little Dribblers during 2020 programming. The goal is to provide more exposure to basketball to more females in order to close the participation gap between males and females in Glencoe Basketball and in Hillsboro.
