Welcome to Scarsdale Youth Basketball


Scarsdale Youth Basketball (SYB) is a competitive travel program. Tryouts are open to all 5th through 8th-grade boys and girls who live or attend school in Scarsdale. Our basketball teams compete in the Tri-County Basketball League (TCBL) and play against teams from other organizations in Westchester and neighboring counties. At each grade level, SYB sponsors up to four 10-player teams, two boys and two girls. The program is designed to give the children a fulfilling, competitive, athletic experience. 
Tryouts are usually held late September/early October, with training starting the first week of November. The TCBL usually runs from November to February, with playoffs in the first week of March. Sign up for our mailing lists to stay informed. 
2020-2021 Season Update

Based on TCBL league’s indefinite suspension, the 2020-2021 SYB season has been indefinitely suspended as well.  We recognize how disappointing this news will be for many people.  We wish we could run a safe program for our children this year, but unfortunately, due to the high risk nature of basketball, that is not possible.  

We look forward to a time when we can all safely return to the courts.  We’ll be in touch as soon as we can do so.

Thank you for your understanding.  We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this most unusual time.

Welcome to SYB!
COVID Updates and Caveats
Safety is our number one priority as we proceed with Scarsdale Youth Basketball for the 2020-2021 season. We are hoping to run tryouts and a season as similarly and consistently to the regular SYB process and season, in the safest manner possible.  There are still many unanswered questions as to whether or not our league will be running, if we’ll be allowed to play competitive indoor basketball, spaces we have available, etc. The SYB board has been and will continue to work diligently to figure all of this out and provide answers in a timely fashion.
In the meantime, we are planning to conduct tryouts at a local outdoor location.  So, we’d like to get the tryout registration process rolling.  We ask for your patience as we’ll need to provide detailed info on dates, times, locations and process adjustments as the tryouts approach (likely end of September beginning of October).  However, we need to determine numbers as soon as possible to help coordinate the process. 
Please read below for a slightly updated explanation of how our tryouts and our league have been run under normal circumstances. As a reminder, we are hoping to proceed as close to the historical norm as possible but it is likely there will be many adjustments.  Again, we ask for your patience and understanding. 
Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone (in small, safe groups) on the courts!
