Doors will open at 8 am and the clinic will start promptly at 8:30. The Clinic will conclude at 1:00 pm. We are looking to have 120 of our coaches in attendance and we expect all towns to be represented. We have an outstanding lineup of presenters and the clinic is free of charge to all MVL Coaches.

On November we will present our 2nd annual Players Clinic at Reading High School. Please see below for all the details. Any questions should be directed to Reading Coordinator Carl McFadden
Look forward to seeing you all at these two great events
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.

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.
Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball is looking for local businesses to sponsor the league. All of the money goes towards running the league. If you are interested in getting your business advertised on our website please see in the "Become a Sponsor" page for details.
