Richmond youth hoops planning spring teams
The Richmond Youth Basketball League is hoping to bring back elite hoops for kids 13 and under.
Tryouts will be held Feb. 16—for boys from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Hugh Boyd Secondary, and for girls from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Hugh McRoberts Secondary. In addition to exhibition games, possible competition dates for boys are March 15 to 17, March 28 to 30, April 19 to 21 and May 10 to 12, and for girls March 28 to 30, April 5 to 7, and May 10 to 12. As many as two teams from each of the boys' and girls' tryouts will be formed.
Many of Richmond's top high school players are graduates of previous RYBL rep teams, notes current co-ordinator Matt Winograd.
RYBL is also planning to host its fall/winter league jamboree March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at R.A. McMath Secondary.
