Announcements: UPDATED 10/26/20

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS NOT CHANGED. WE SHOULD HAVE UPDATED INFORMATION IN MID-NOVEMBER. Travel Basketball is on hold until further notice. The following message comes from Central Mass Youth Basketball League (CMYBL). August 19, 2020 UPDATE: We hope we can have a travel basketball season this winter. Right now however, starting like we normally would in November is probably impossible. In addition to the rules and guidelines of what is and isn't allowed by the state, a huge hurdle for the 44 programs in CMYBL is gym time. School districts don't know what they're going to allow for classes during the day; renting gym time to outside groups for practices and games is about the last thing they're worried about. That in mind, we are delaying the planned opening day of the 2020-2021 travel basketball season to January 10 or 17, 2021. Our hope is by pushing the start date back, programs can have some more time to get organized and see if a season is feasible for their town. Assuming we start in January, the season would be a 9-10 week season with games most likely being played on least one if not both Sunday's of February vacation week. Playoffs would occur in late March. 

  • Further information on Recreation Basketball will be provided in mid-November, 2020.

Basketball Programs

Nipmuc Youth Basketball is proud to offer two basketball programs to our community.  We have a Recreational league, also refered to as town ball or the rec league.  We also offer a competetive Travel program.  Below is a quick description of each program.

NYB Recreation Basketball Program

The Recreation program is a great program for all ages.  This program is offered for boys & girls in Pre-K through 12th grade.  This program helps kids learn more about the game of basketball, learn new skills, tune your existing skills, build confidence, season play for older divisions and fun for all. For more information, visit the Recreation Program page


NYB Travel Basketball Program

The Travel program is available for boys 4th through 8th grade & girls 5th through 8th grade. This program is a competitive league where our players are challenged with advanced basketball concepts and commitment.  Teams are formed and we play against other travel teams in Massachusetts.  For more information please see our Travel Basketball Program page.

Coaching & Volunteering

The success of our basketball programs is highly dependent on the time and effort of our volunteers.   Whether its coaching a team, assisting during practice sessions, holding a board position, helping out with fundraising or simply being available to help out during the season.  Please consider volunteering - it's fun and rewarding at the same time.  If interested in coaching, please indicate so during the registration process.  For other inqueries, please email AJ Byrne at byrne2425@comcast.net
