In-town Evaluation Schedule

Hi everyone,

There was some confusion yesterday between the travel tryout schedule and the In-town evaluation schedule.  I just wanted to send this one more time to confirm that all In-town evaluations will be this Saturday, October 4th.  All weekday tryouts are for travel players only.

Also, although all travel players receive in-town for free, there is a separate registration that must be completed.  There is a box to check in that registration indicating your child is also a travel player which will zero out the cost.

Thank you,


3rd/4th/5th grade girls - BHS 2:30pm

6th/7th/8th (9th) girls - BHS 1:00pm

3rd grade boys - BMMS 2:30pm

4th grade boys - BMMS 10:30am

5th grade boys - BHS 7:00am

6th grade boys - BHS 8:30am

7th grade boys - BMMS 8:30am

8th (9th) grade boys - BMMS 7:00am


All players should attend their respective evaluation.  If they are unable to attend please contact the board member listed at the bottom of this e-mail to make alternative plans to attend with another grade.  All players should be registered prior to appearing at evaluations.  Attending evaluations without registering in advance slows the process down for everyone and limits the time available to evaluate.

Although we realize 7am is extremely early, our options were to begin very early or end very late (8:30pm+) in order to accommodate Soccer games, Soccer pictures and Fall Baseball.  We believe most would prefer to begin early and not cut into other sports.

We are still looking for a couple coaches at each level.  Please e-mail the directors below if you are interested in helping out.  Time commitment is one hour of practice on a weeknight and a one hour game on Saturday.

3/4/5 girls - Joe Bird   

6/7/8 girls - Dave Wahl  

3/4 boys - Seth Cohen  

5/6 boys - Joe Rotigliano  

7/8 boys - Jeff Newcombe

Swish Kids



Brad Baker has volunteered to be
the SWISH kids coach for our first
and second graders. Brad has been
a resident of Bellingham for 17 years
and has two sons. His oldest
son, Jack, participated in the SWISH
kids program and his youngest son,
Charlie, is in the program this year.
Brad has basketball
experience playing, coaching,
and refereeing. Thank you Brad for
supporting the program!
There has been interest by other
parents to help in the SWISH kids
program. I know that Brad will be
looking for many parent volunteers
each week to help run the drills and
make it fun for the kids.

Coaching Clinic

This coaches clinic is a great opportunity to learn different tips and techniques for coaching and conducting practices.  It’s very inexpensive and extremely informative.  Some of our BYBA coaches have attended in the past and highly recommend this clinic.   This year's clinic features lectures by Harvard Coach Tommy Ammaker and Boston Celtics Coach Brad Stevens.
