Thank you players, coaches, commissioners
& parents for a Great 2021-2022 Season!

Against the Odds of Covid, you Made it Possible.

Over 2,800 children played HCYP Basketball this season and reaped the benefits of playing the sport -- along with their families -- in the recreation, middle school and travel basketball programs.  It was a huge collaborative effort for everyone, and was an amazing feat given the fact the we did not know for sure we would have a season because of the continuing Covid pandemic.  But we all did it because we all worked together.  Despite the challenges, you made it happen.

We look forward to seeing you all next year for a new and improved season in good health for all!  Check back here soon for registration for the 2023 season and the Early Bird Discount!

Have healthy, safe and happy Spring & Summer!  See you next season!!!!!

Values of the Game


John Wooden

Hall of Fame Coach

"Talent is God given, be humble. Fame is man given, be grateful. Conceit is self given, be careful."

February 24, 1997:  Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls.

Michael Jordan

Hall of Fame Guard
Six-Time World NBA Champion Chicago Bulls

"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."


Pat Summitt

Hall of Fame Coach
University of Tennessee Volunteers, Women’s Basketball

"They don't care how much you know, unless they know how much you care."


Sylvia Hatchell

UNC Head Coach
University of North Carolina Tar Heels, Women’s Basketball

"It was her attitude, her demeanor, her smile, her work ethic. I just fell in love with her."


Dean E. Smith

Hall of Fame Coach
University of North Carolina Tar Heels, Men’s Basketball

"I was a demanding coach, but my players knew that I cared for them and that my caring didn't stop when they graduated."

New to The Area?

Welcome to HCYP Basketball, the premier youth basketball program in Howard County! HCYP Basketball is a division of the Howard County Youth Program, Inc. (HCYP), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Howard County youth and their families with organized sports programs since 1952. I have been around the game of basketball for over 48 years and have loved every minute of it. I hope that others can enjoy the game and its benefits as my family and I have.

Through the game of basketball, youth will gain valuable life skills that can be used throughout their lives – such as leadership and sportsmanship – through participation in league competition, clinics and camps from first grade through high school.  The time you spend coaching and/or spectating will be time well spent when looking back through your child's growth.

Please look over our website and be sure to check our Frequently Asked Questions and other program information that is of interest to you and your child or children. If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact us directly. We value our partnership with you and the entire Howard County community and look forward to you joining the HCYP Basketball family!


Thanking You Sincerely,

BJ Borden
