Mt. Mansfield Youth Basketball League

MMYBL Objectives


OBJECTIVES





1. Serve the children of Bolton, Huntington, Jericho, Richmond, and Underhill by providing a nonprofit basketball league for children in Grades 1-8 utilizing MMUUSD gyms.

2. 
 Develop our youth basketball players for greater levels of competition using The Whole Player concept.  The Whole Player concept emphasizes the growth of technical and tactical basketball skills with a greater emphasis placed on the development of players' social and mental skills and positive life-long habits by playing youth basketball.

3. 
Provide  coaches and volunteers that embody ideals of honesty, loyalty, courage, respect, and good sportsmanship in each player.

We teach the concepts of teamwork, work ethic, and positive attitudes so that our players can achieve thier goals on and off the court.

The league, although competitively structured, will not put more emphasis on winning than on sportsmanship and developing positive community values.
