PYBL Elite Summer 2018 Update (Aug 16th)
Two weeks remaining in the PYBL Elite Summer Season, check the calendar for game information.
The kickoff for the PYBL Elite Fall Season will be Sept 12th @ Meadowbrook Middle School Gym. More details to follow.
Our 10u team played a very talented South Bay Bulls team. The final score was 30-19 but the game was very competitive. The South Bay Bulls went all the way to the finals, and lost in overtime to the San Diego Prospects.
Our 13u team played a nail biter against All Net. Despite trailing by 9 at half, we had a one point lead with under 30 seconds left, but ultimately got beat by a last second three pointer 39-36.
Our 14u team fought hard against an undefeated Chula Vista Hawks team, and only trailed by two points at the half. The Hawks finally prevailed 41-30, but the game was a battle until the final whistle. The Hawks made it to the final, but were upset 39-38 by the Oceanside Warriors ( a team that our PYBL 14u team beat during the regular season).
Despite a slow start by all the teams this season (1-4, 2-3, 0-4), the teams caught fire at the end of the season and finished strong (4-4, 5-3, 4-4).
The PYBL Elite program was formed in the Spring of 2018 to provide an affordable avenue for Poway kids to play year round competitive basketball. Unlike traditional basketball clubs, we are more focused on multi-sport kids, who want lower cost and less commitment, but still want the year round basketball experience. In the spring of 2018, PYBL Elite had three teams which competed in the Sol Spring League (10u, 13u, 14u). The club had a very successful inaugural season with all three teams reaching the playoffs. Since then the league has grown, we are just finishing up the fall league with six teams, some currently in the playoffs.
The Sol League is a great opportunity for first year club players. The league consists of an 8 game schedule with playoffs, so there is less pressure to win games since there is nothing at stake. In addition, games are held on Thursday and Friday evenings (along with some weekend games), so the schedule is more flexible for multi-sport kids, and summer weekend travelers. Weekly practices this summer will be held on Wednesday evenings at Meadowbrook Middle School Gym starting June 27th. While the season begins in late June, we will not have any scheduled games until the weekend after the 4th of July.
If interested, please use the signup list provided so we can get a good estimate of how many players are interested in each age group. Age groups are dependent mostly on current grade in school, please use the just completed grade when choosing the appropriate list. Typically, at least 8 players are needed in a particular age group to form a team.
The cost for new players will be $145 this summer which includes a pair of reversible basketball shorts. For the summer season, teams will continue to use existing PYBL jerseys. If a new player does not have a PYBL jersey from a previous season, one will be provided at no additional cost. Sibling discounts ($20) and scholarships are available.
