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.
It is the mission of the HCYP basketball program to instill in our players confidence, commitment, leadership skills and integrity as a foundation for a productive and successful life. Our goal is to teach our middle school athletes respect for themselves, their peers and their community by instilling a code of ethics built on honesty, responsibility and teamwork.
Entering my third year as league commissioner, I look forward to seeing a successful program going in the right direction with our athletes getting great guidance by our coaches. Our players, families, and volunteers work together to cultivate a disciplined environment so every child can reach their full potential, develop their talents, and increase their skills in the game of basketball. Can’t wait for a great upcoming season! - Anthony Fulmore
