Fame is man given, be grateful. Conceit is self given, be careful." Michael Jordan Hall of Fame GuardSix-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."

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!
