CYA Winter 2016-17 Basketball Program
House Program Summary

Program Summary

This Winter season (2016-17) CYA offers a house recreational program for players from 1st through 12th grade; CYA also offers a travel program through the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (generally for players in 4th to 8th grade). Games for the Travel and House programs begin in December and run through mid-March. Practice for the Travel program begins in mid-October. House practices begin in mid November for grades 1-8; practices for grades 9-10 begin in December (grades 11-12 have only 1 practice before the season starts and none during the season itself).

Online registration for the Winter House program opens on September 22nd and will run until early November. Registration fees are projected to be $175.00 for grades 2-8, $180.00 for grades 9-12, and $125.00 for grade 1. Incorporated into these registration fees is a $20 CYA admininstrative fee, a $10 fee for the CYA indoor facilities capital improvement fund, and the $5.50 Fairfax County user fee (to repeat, these fees are included in the registration fees listed above). Non-county residents pay an additional $30.00 as the Fairfax County user fee for non-residents is $38.00. For the travel registration fees, see below. A late fee of $25 will be applied to grades 1-8 registrations starting 10/17 and to grades 9-12 registrations starting 11/14.

HOUSE RECREATIONAL PROGRAM

The 1st grade program is strictly instructional, emphasizing skill development and basic understanding of the game. In 2nd grade, players are given the opportunity to test their skills in games that continue to focus more on instruction than competition. The 3rd through 12th grade house leagues are progressively competitive leagues, though with a great deal of emphasis placed on continuing skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship. House teams for all grades play at Chantilly area gyms, with the exception of high school girls. Since the high school girls participate in a Friendship League with neighboring programs, they may play some of their games at gyms in Vienna, Fairfax, Burke and Annandale.

Skills assessments (to assist in the player drafts) for Grades 3-8 are held in early to mid-November (grades 1-2 are assigned to teams by school and neighborhood). The schedule for these skills assessments will be posted in late October. During the Winter season, teams in grades 2-10 play one game and hold one 1-hour practice per week from December through February. Girls and Boys Grades 11-12 play 1-2 games on weekends but do not hold weekly practices. Tournaments for grades 4-12 are held in March.

SKILLS ASSESSMENTS:  Girls Grades 9-12 and Boys Grades 9-12 do not hold skills assessments; teams are assigned through a draft (boys) or by the league administrator (girls) in cooperation with the coaches based on previous knowledge of participant skills. Grades 1-2 do not hold skills assessments as players are assigned to teams based on schools and neighborhoods.
