MVYB Letter from the President - Rick Gorman
by posted 08/27/2013
 
Hello Everyone,
 
I hope everyone enjoyed their spring and summers. It’s that time again that we start to think about the upcoming 2013-14 Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball League.  All of our communities are returning again this year and we welcome Stoneham as the newest entry to our league.
The Executive Board will be meeting on September 4th to plan for our League wide Town Coordinators meeting on September 26th. We have selected our new Board for the upcoming year and this will be posted shortly on our website. I am once again thrilled to work with such a great group of passionate volunteers.
We will update any changes this year after our Town Coordinators meeting. Expect some slight changes as well as some clarifications on rules and philosophy. In the fall we will be running our annual Coaches Clinic which has been an unbelievable event year in and year out for our league coaches. Last season e piloted a pre-season Players Clinic and this will once again take place in November.
I want to congratulate all of our division champions from last year as well as our 8th Grade Sportsmanship Award winners. 2012 was an outstanding year for our league and we look forward to taking it to a new level this season.
See you in the Gyms.

Best  Regards

Rick Gorman

League President

Concussions
by posted 04/01/2011
 

The league has been made aware of a point of emphasis for officials that states that the referees are to remove a player from any game who is showing symptoms of receiving a concussion; even if the coach and parents disagree.  As a league, we support this process and expect all coaches, players, parents and officials to err on the side of caution regarding our young players health.  We will back any referee who removes a player who has concussion symptoms.
 
Thank you,
 
Rick Gorman
MVYB President
