Frequently Asked Questions

What is Metrowest?

Metrowest is a youth basketball organization in Massachusetts run by Mass Premier Courts in Foxboro. Metrowest is a competitive travel basketball program for towns in Massachusetts and now Rhode Island. Metrowest has been operating for over 20 years.

How long has BYBA been involved in Metrowest?

2021-2022 will be Barrington's eleventh season playing in Metrowest. Our first year we placed 4 teams in the league and last winter we placed 11 teams (8 boys and 4 girls)

What grade levels are available?

BYBA can place players in leagues that span from 4th to 8th grade for both boys and girls. We also allow 3rd graders to tryout for our 4th grade teams

What is the cost of our program?

$430 per player. The fee includes all practices, games, a tournament and metro playoffs tournament. This fee is paid after you are selected to play on a team and accept said placement.  If your player needs a new uniform, there is a $35 dollar fee for that.  Some players fit into uniforms for previous years of have older siblings or what not so may not need a uniform.

When are the games played?

Games are on Sundays starting the first week of December through early March. Usually no games during Christmas vacation (but maybe after New Years) but there will be games during February vacation. There is a 12 game regular season schedule and playoffs for all teams in early March

Where are the games played?
In a normal season, we have 6 home games and 6 games on the road. While our access to the Middle School is in limbo this year because of covid, we may need to find another place to host our games.  Six games will be road games at neighboring towns in the 95 area of Massachusetts

When and where are practices?
Teams will practice at least twice a week and some teams will practice three times. Either two evenings a week or an evening and a Saturday afternoon practice. All practices will be in Barrington at St. Andrew's School or Barrington Middle School unless we need to secure an addional gym to accomodate teams.

Do all teams play in the same division of Metrowest?
No. Metrowest has four or five different division levels in each grade and BYBA has the ability to place teams in the division we feel is the best fit for our teams. Some BYBA teams will play in higher divisions while some will play in lower divisions. We can place teams in multiple divisions in the same grade level as well

Do you place all players on teams?
No, there will be players not selected for a team.  BYBA will try to place as many players on appropriate level teams depending skill level, enrollment, available gym time and availability of coaches. There will be A and B teams in divisions where enrollment is sufficient and there is availability of gym time and coaches

What is the team selection process like?
Players will be evaluated at two separate tryout sessions by coaches in their respective grade levels and by board members. The coaching staff and board selects each respective team collaboratively based on player evaluations at tryouts.

I've heard about RIYBA, is that different?
RIYBA is the RI Youth Basketball Association and Barrington Youth Basketball is a member of RIYBA.  RIYBA sponsors weekend tournaments around the state.  As members, BYBA teams can play in RIYBA tournaments at the discretion of individual coaches.  We don't participate in the RIYBA league though.  The RIYBA board is revamping things so we may look to schedule more games with them in the future.
