Marshfield Youth Basketball
A League for All Interests & Abilities!
Celebrating 45 years of community support!
Thank you Marshfield!
MYB POSITION STATEMENT: COVID 19 (updated 10/3/20)
First of all, we hope you and your families are all well and doing the best you can during these unprecedented times.
Recent MYB survey with overwhelming response is that people want to play basketball this winter.
The board is very interested in providing Marshfield kids with the opportunity to play basketball for the 2020/2021 season.
Must also provide the safest environment possible.
The recreational league is something that we have more control over as it is just Marshfield residents in all Marshfield gyms.
Currently, the school department is not opening up their gyms to any outside vendors which includes MYB.
Over the next several weeks, we will look to provide proposals to the school department about how we may be able to play youth basketball safely in town.
Likely reduced 20/21 season starting in January.
We will continue to monitor how things are going at all the schools and will provide an update as more information becomes available.
Each league is very interested in having a season this year even if it means playing all games at a facility like the U in Hanover and/or the Wolves Den.
Season likely to start in January.
The ability to play travel basketball will not only depend on gym availability but we must also follow the directives of the CDC, State of MA, and local health departments.
We trust you understand that we are doing everything we can to provide a safe environment for the kids to play basketball but there are a number of factors out of our control. Our state has still not allowed AAU games to be played and I am sure the state’s and the MIAA’s decision on what will happen this winter for high school basketball will impact our leagues as well. In the meantime, please be safe, be diligent and hopefully we will continue to see improvements so we can get back on the courts as soon as possible.
The success of the MYB Recreation & Travel Leagues are dependent on parent volunteer coaches.
Please consider coaching your child’s Recreation or Travel league team this season!
