NYB Recreation President: Scott Evans slaevans@aol.com


***UPDATE ON 12/16/20: NYB has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-2021 Recreation Basketball season due to the lack of gym availability, in light of the pandemic.



Nipmuc Youth Basketball is proud to offer a tremendous recreational basketball program for young athletes in Mendon-Upton and surrounding communities.  It is open to all ages - from Pre-K to 12th grade.  Whether you're brand new to the game, looking to enhance your skills or looking to join a team for a full season of games, the rec program is right for you!


NYB Recreation Highlights

  • Open to girls and boys in Pre-K through 12 grade

  • Pre-K - 3rd Grade is instructional based - skill session, instructions, etc

  • 4 -12th Grade is team based (with instruction included)

  • No tryouts - all registrants are eligible to participate in the program

  • All sessions/games are held at a gym in Mendon and Upton (Miscoe, Clough and Memorial gyms)

  • Pre-K - 3rd grade meet on Saturdays mornings

  • 4th - 12th grade meet twice per week - one weekday evening practice and and one game on Saturday

  • Older teams based divisions will have a playoff at the end of the season. 

  • Cost to participate is listed in the fee schedule below

  • A $15 registration fee is non-refundable

  • No refunds after the 1st session (December 1st) unless extenuating  circumstances (IE, medical injury, etc.).

  • Please contact Scott Evans with any questions.


  • The season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, December 7, 2019 and end on Saturday March 7, 2020.

  • Volunteers are an essential part of the program. Anyone wishing to volunteer should register as an age group coordinator and/or coach/assistant coach. All volunteers are expected to complete a KidSafe background check, which you will be prompted to do in the registration process. There is no cost for you to do this.


  • Players and siblings may not roam the buildings or dribble basketballs in the hallways before, during, or after their scheduled session.

  • Using the school gymnasiums is a privilege for our organization and we must adhere to the rules that have been established by the schools. This is very important and we would appreciate your support in communicating this to your kids and enforcing this each week.

  • Children are not allowed to play on any of the gym equipment: the rock climbing wall, pull up bars, the small portable basketball hoops, etc. They should also not shoot at the portable hoops unless instructed by their coaches to do so.

  • Players should change out of wet, dirty footwear and into clean, dry sneakers before entering the gym. This will help to ensure a safe and clean environment for the kids and coaches.

  • All empty water bottles and other trash must be removed from the gyms at the end of each session. Please do your part to get rid of your own trash so this does not fall to the coaches to clean up. We would greatly appreciate it if you would not leave this for the coaches to do after we are done.
