Winter Basketball Player Transfer Form- Revised 6/22/20

 

Revised 6/23/2020

 

Team Composition Guidelines: Travel Teams

  • Athletes must try out and compete with the travel association within the community where they reside (this is considered to be the athlete’s Home association) or attend school.
  • Exceptions
    • In situations involving “split families,” the athlete may participate with the association where the mother or father reside with the following stipulation: For the “split family” exception, please refer to the address that the player's school has on file to determine which association(s) the player is eligible to participate with. 
    • If there is not a travel association within the community where the athlete resides or attends school, or if the athlete has been cut or restricted from their home association, they may participate with a bordering association.

Team Composition Guidelines: School Teams

  • This rule covers both private and public schools.
  • The following criteria must be met for a school team to meet MYAS eligibility requirements:
  • The program must be organized by the school administrators.
  • All of the kids must attend the school.
  • The school must enroll kids at the specific grade level for the school to offer a team at that grade level.
    • Clarification: If the school enrolls grades 6-12, a 5th grade team from that school will not meet the MYAS eligibility requirements since the school does not enroll 5th Grade.
    • The MYAS will no longer allow parochial schools that enroll grades 9-12 to designate other K-8 schools (or any combination of grades K-8) as their feeder schools.
    • Private / Parochial School Exception:
      • Athletes attending a private/parochial school that does not offer a basketball program have the following options:
        • Participate with the traveling basketball association where the school is located.
          • Example: If the private/parochial school is located within the Andover high school attendance area, the athlete could choose to play with Andover.
        • Participate with the traveling basketball association where the athlete resides.
          • Example: If the athlete resides within the Andover high school attendance area, the athlete could choose to play with Andover.

 

Open/All-star and Renegade Teams

  • NOT allowed to participate in MYBA events,
  • An “open/all-star” team is defined as any team that is comprised of players from multiple communities where recognized youth associations exist.
  • A “renegade” team is defined as any team that is comprised of players who all reside in the same community or attend the same school, but who have chosen to bypass the local traveling association.
