On November 6, 2020, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs issued amended guidance for youth sports in Massachusetts, which authorized the playing of basketball games in Massachusetts. A copy of this document can be found on our COVID-19 page. At this time, Lynnfield Public Schools is not allowing any youth organizations access to school gyms, which unfortunately means that Lynnfield Youth Basketball will NOT be offering in-town or skills and drills programs this year. We are, however, offering a travel team program for girls and boys in Grades 4 through 8.
REGISTRATION FOR TRAVEL BASKETBALL IS NOW CLOSED.

Travel Team Expectations
Lynnfield participates in the North Shore Basketball Association. For the upcoming season, it is currently estimated that travel teams will play 8 regular season games, currently scheduled between 1/2/21 and 2/28/21, followed by double elimination playoffs beginning the first week of March 2021. Practices will primarily be held at Danvers Indoor Sports and will vary depending on gym availability, but will likely include 1 to 2 hours per week. Games will be played on weekends, either Saturdays or Sundays, unless gym constraints dictate otherwise.
If a player is selected for a travel team, a travel team fee of $250 will be assessed per player. In addition, travel team players must also purchase a team uniform at their own expense, which will be re-used by the player each year that he/she continues playing in the youth travel program. If the season is cancelled or cut short due to COVID-19 either by the North Shore Basketball Association or LYB, a partial refund of the assessed travel team fee may be possible, depending on a calculation of any fixed costs already incurred. No refunds will be issued to individuals who withdraw from the program for personal reasons.
Lynnfield Youth Basketball will continue to support the participation of our youth travel teams throughout the 2020-2021 season, so long as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts continues to allow basketball games be played, and so long as our participation is not deemed to be contributing to the spread of COVID-19 throughout the Lynnfield community.
Lynnfield Youth Basketball is a sports program offered through Lynnfield Youth Sports Program, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Lynnfield Youth Basketball offers in-town basketball programs for girls and boys in grades 1 - 8, as well as travel team programs for grades 5 - 8. The boys travel teams compete in the Cape Ann Boys Basketball League and the girls compete in the North Shore Girls Basketball League.
