The End of the KYBL Basketball Season is approaching, and it's time for our END OF THE YEAR MARCH MADNESS TOURNAMENT. MARCH 13-19, 2016 This is for Kaneland Boys Basketball teams as well as Cheer. ( 5th/6th grade girls are involved in Geneva's end of season tourney and 3rd/4th grade girls do not participate in an end of season tourney.)
It’s an exciting time here at the KYBL as we host our biggest tournament ever…! Over 350 players, 38 Teams , over 73 games, only 5 days…! (You read that right, 73 games in Five days...right here in Kaneland…!) All Boy Rec Teams will participate. KYBL, Maple Park and Sugrar Grove teams...!
March 13th – 18th is Pool Play. For that the teams are divided by their season record. Every team should play at least two games. Some play three depending on how the pool bracket worked out. Games are during the week…! We will not have exact schedule until closer to the event..!
SINGLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT
Saturday March 19th will be a massive single elimination March Madness style tournament at Harter Middle School. ALL TEAMS WILL PARTICIPATE ON SATURDAY…seeding’s based on season record and pool play. Saturday games will be posted Friday (3/18) by 10pm. Games start at 8:00am. ($2.00 entrance fee for adults, Kids are free...!)
Parents, Coaches, Players we need your help. Parents please volunteer to run the clock, or keep the book. Be careful allowing children to do this as when a discrepancy occurs it is unfair to the child.
To Everyone: for the last games at the gyms, please pick up all garbage left behind…and take some time to fold some chairs. We are going to be moving a ton of people thru these facilities this week, and we need to make sure that we clean up after ourselves. Keep track of siblings, no unsupervised students should be wandering the halls of the school. We can only use the gym and the concession area only.
One final reminder, Parents and coaches, this is not the world championships. Let’s make this about the kids and let them have fun. If you are expecting NBA style of refs at a fifth grade basketball game…then you will be sorely disappointed. We are out here to teach our youth the skills and the fundamentals of Basketball. Part of that is good sportsmanship. We all must lead by example…if we are arguing with the refs or yelling from the stands we are not setting a good example for our youth.
Only one team is going to win at each level…which means nearly everyone will go home sooner than they would like to. Please keep your expectations in check..!
ANY UNSPORTSMANLIKE LIKE CONDUCT (PARENTS, COACHES, PLAYERS) WILL BE MET WITH EXPULSION FROM THE EVENT...NO WARNINGS…..ZERO TOLERANCE
This is a very big tournament with a lot of moving parts…being put on by all volunteers. Please be patient with our refs and coaches. Let’s have some fun…!
