General Information 

    YBA Competitive teams will play in fall basketball leagues at The Gym of Springfield.  
    Games begin at the end of October and practices will begin immediately upon the team selection announcement. 
    Players that make a team will be required to pay fees for the cost of the leagues and uniforms, which will be collected by the coach. YBA works with the school district to provide practice times at the Ball-Chatham schools for these competitive teams.  It is the responsibility of the coach and team to make payment and register with The Gym of Springfield.  Coaches are selected and approved by the Chatham YBA Board of Directors.
    Any continuation of the competitive teams after the fall session will be at the discretion of each coach and team.  Chatham YBA will not cover any additional costs and will only provide practice time if there is available space after providing practice time to the recreational YBA teams.  

If you have any questions please contact:  For boys teams:  Anthony Mackey at 217-381-7065, or, for girls teams:  Scott Wiseman ( or 217-494-3227.
