HCYP Middle School Basketball
The HCYP Basketball Middle School League is advanced competition designed for boys and girls in grades 6 - 8 and provides an environment which allows for further development of players in a safe, fun and competitive league. While HCYP Basketball encourages all our teams to play hard and win, the primary focus is to have fun and continue to build on the fundamentals of basketball.
Middle School teams may also play in other area leagues and tournaments, including the HCYP Basketball Sunday Travel League, as directed by the team’s head coach.
HCYP Middle School teams are not recreation teams but are teams assembled by middle school attendance. One team in both the boys’ and girls’ division is composed of players whose middle school does not have an HCYP Basketball team that represents them. This team is generally called Howard United.
Note: HCYP Basketball Middle School teams are part of the HCYP Basketball program and are not part of the middle school or the Howard County Public School System.
Athletes for any Middle school/Travel league that are participating in our HCYP program play an integral part in the program. Players have the opportunity to participate in one of the greatest sports and programs with great coaches who will teach the game of basketball, develop/improve time management skills, build confidence with the player, and most importantly to learn that good sportsmanship means winning and losing with grace and dignity. As my first year as League Commissioner, I have confidence that this program will run not only smoothly but with all of us working together to keep the program running to make sure our athletes get the best guidance from our coaches. I am looking forward to seeing our teams back again again next year for another fantastic season! - Anthony Fulmore
