2018 Girls Hornets Hoops Classic Tournament

Thank you to all of the teams that participated in this year's tournament. We had a great day. Your players, coaches, and parents played a huge role. Good luck with the remainder of your season. We hope to see you back again in January 2019! 

Thank you to our fabulous volunteers that make this day happen! 


Volunteers Are Key!

Volunteers!

Sign up early!

The "DIBS" sign-up program will be available soon! An email will be sent when it is open!

Big Lake Youth Basketball Association is an organization operated by volunteers. As you have kids participate in basketball, you hear about volunteer time and volunteer checks...sometimes people wonder about this, but never ask questions.  We want to provide answers for questions you might not ask!

Volunteers are needed in many areas of the Association.  There are Board of Directors positions, coaches, parent liaisons, to list a few.  We also have many needs to staff our tournaments...at the concession stand and ticket desk. These tournaments are a big deal and volunteer participation is vital.

Why are the tournaments so important? Tournaments are exciting and it's nice to have some in town, close to home. They are also a big fundraiser for the Association.  Funds raised by these tournaments are used to lower costs for the families participating in BLYBA, reducing uniform fees, paying for equipment, as well as offering additional basketball opportunities.  Without these tournaments, we would all pay more.  By having all of us volunteer, it saves everyone money and provides more chances for kids in our community to play basketball!

Who needs to provide a volunteer check and why?  The volunteer check ($150) is required for every family that has one or more players participating in basketball in 2nd-8th grades (Kindergarten and first grade are excluded).  This volunteer check is held by the treasurer and will only be cashed if the 6 hour volunteer requirement is not fulfilled.  Upon completion of the volunteer time, your check is destroyed.  Volunteer checks are required for every family, including the Board of Directors, coaches and liaisons. Unfortunately collecting checks is necessary (for almost any sports organization) to ensure volunteer time is spread around and not dependent on only a few.

How do you sign up?  Sign up is handled here on our webpage, at the DIBS tab at the top right.  Click on that tab and sign up for time slots. **You need to be working during your shift. Please try to sign up for a time that your team will not be playing. For example, if you have a 4th grade boy playing in our tournament on Sunday, please sign up to fulfill your time on the Saturday of that weekend or sign up to work the girls tournament. 6 hours is a minimum, you can always sign up for more :)


The Big Lake Youth Basketball Association (BLYBA) is an independent non-profit organization and is not part of the Big Lake School District programs.

We are a community group of volunteers interested in the promotion of basketball in the Big Lake attendance area and the development of a competitive basketball program. Participation will focus on camaraderie, sportsmanship and the intense instruction of basketball fundamentals and having fun while traveling to other communities.
