Who are we:
The PBGYAA is a non-profit 501 C , all volunteer organization that oversees the youth sports programs in The City of Palm Beach Gardens. Many of our volunteers are parents of the athletes, so it is really a community endeavor.

Our focus in the basketball program will be to teach the fundamentals of the game regardless of everyone’s skill level. We also encourage teamwork and good sportsmanship through a positive atmosphere. In our program, we promote a competitive environment, but winning at all cost is not tolerated and is evident by our rule that “everyone must play” regardless of skill level.

All of our leagues are based on a first come first serve registration. With the exception of our training leagues, all teams are assembled through a draft after a skills evaluation process. We also limit special request from coaches and parents in an effort to maintain the stability of competitiveness throughout the various leagues. We also feel when a player is better suited to play up in a grade level. We, as the governing body, will encourage that player and family to do so, with the understanding that this is being done to maintain a fairly balanced league. Once the decision has been made to move up, the player will not be able to move down; as the various leagues maybe filled. Remember this is recreational basketball and our goal is for the participants to have fun in a competitive atmosphere. The more balanced the leagues are usually the more fun the season will be.

Below is some additional information about our programs

*+*Training league** Girls K-2 grade & Boys 1st & 2nd (No Exceptions). This is a non-competitive league where the players learn the basics of the game while having fun. Boys’ games are on Saturday and Girls’ games on Sunday with a few Monday evenings. Games are played on a smaller court with each team being 4 on 4 This allows for more spacing and Coaches are the 5th player on the court helping facilitate the offense and the second coach reminds the players’ of their defensive assignments. In addition there is a certified Referee overseeing the game. The Referee help the players learn the rules of the game. As the season progresses we expect the players knowledge of the games to progress. So we reduce the coaches’ involvement.

Elementary League- Both Boys and Girls 3rd and 4th graders. This League has rules to maintain a learning environment as well as being competitive. This league is man to man defense the entire season and games are played on a smaller court to allow for more scoring action. During the season the players will improve their skills and still have fun.

Intermediate League Both Boys and Girls 5th & 6th graders. This league is mostly man to man defense but there are times in the game when a defense can full court press and play zone defense. We still emphasis fun and skill development at this level

+*Middle School League* Both Boys and Girls 7th & 8th grader. This league is based on
regular basketball with a couple rule adjustments to maintain competitiveness
