Welcome To The Tenafly Youth Basketball 2014 – 2015 Season
Dear Tenafly Basketball Families:
As the 2014-2015 recreation basketball season gets under way, we are pleased to announce some of the exciting changes TYB has implemented for the program. As always, we are mindful of our mission statement, which is at the cornerstone of the program:
“The Tenafly Youth Basketball League is a New Jersey not for profit corporation formed to provide the children of Tenafly with an environment that promotes the sport of basketball, social interaction, competition, and fun. The League’s best efforts shall be directed toward providing proper guidance and direction to meet the individual needs of the participants and in so doing, teach the fundamentals of basketball. Team Spirit and good sportsmanship shall dominate all aspects of the program.”
With this mission in mind this year:
We will begin standings and playoffs. IMPORTANT – We are not changing the competitive fairness rules of the program. We are looking to make our program more interesting and exciting for the hundreds of kids who participate allowing kids to have fun and compete in their respective grades.
We anticipate having playoffs for all divisions at Tenafly Middle School or another venue more conducive to crowds than the elementary schools.
Team Construction – We are sensitive to Rec basketball being a place where kids can be and play with friends and to carpooling requests. We are not looking to change that at its core. However, it is important for our teams to be built with competitive fairness in mind so the program can succeed. We will continue to do our best to honor requests when it fits within team equality.
Contact Management – We will make sure that coaches and parents of teams have contact information for their teams so carpooling can work and be utilized when needed.
Volunteer Parent/Coaches – We understand the importance of coaching in a more robust recreational program. We will do everything we can to put our volunteer coaches in a position to succeed and flourish. We want to thank each and every one of our past, present, and future volunteer coaches. You are the backbone of this program and it is greatly appreciated!!!
We hope that everyone is as excited as we are for the upcoming season!!! We assure you we take the confidence and responsibility that you have placed with us to heart AND promise to do the best we can to make sure the Rec program is a rewarding and fulfilling experience for each and every child and parent who participates and something we can all continue to be proud of!!!
Eric Kleiner, Co-Chair of the Recreational Program of Tenafly Youth Basketball.

Tenafly Youth Basketball (TYB) offers kids from 1st grade through 8th grade in the Tenafly, NJ School District the opportunity to play and enjoy the great game of basketball.
