Youth Basketball Comes to Western Maine

The Western Mountain Youth Basketball Organization (WMYBO) will begin operating this December in the western mountains of Maine! WMYBO is a developmental basketball program for youth in grades K-6 that will provide basic basketball skills and knowledge to participants. A group led by community members and basketball coaches has led to the development of this recreational program.


The participants will be broken into three groups based on age and/or ability level. The two older groups will participate in one practice per week held at their local school and one game on a weekend day. The weekday event/practice will be held at the local school based on the availability of both the coach and the facility. The weekend events will take place on Sunday afternoons. All weekend events will take place at Mt. Abram High School.


The youngest age group will meet on Sunday afternnons where they will participate in drills, contests and scrimmage games. This group will not be participating in a tournament due to the fact that the scrimmages they play each weekend will be from teams that are chosen each week.
