Registration is Open for 2014-15 Youngtimers Season!
Registration is now posted for the Stamford Youngtimers 2014-15 House and Travel Seasons at sytbb.com. The Registration tab is on the left navigation panel on the website. The league is open to girls beginning in kindergarten through 9th grade. Little Timers is for K and 1st Grade, Starters is for 2nd and 3rd Graders, Juniors is for 4th, 5th and beginning 6th Graders while Seniors is for 7th through 9th Graders. A full explanation of each program is available at our website under House League Information on the left navigation panel. A few important notes:
The Junior League will now primarily be 4th and 5th graders but if your daughter is a beginning 6th grader then you should sign her up for Juniors. If she has played before, then the Senior League will make the most sense. Please ask Tim Frank if you are unsure which level your daughter should play.
Just a reminder that 7th and 8th grade travel players do NOT have to play in the House League but may do so if they prefer. However, 5th and 6th grade travel players must play in the House League. With that said, all 7th and 8th graders should sign up for the House League. Once a player makes the 7th or 8th grade travel team, she will have the option to opt out of House if she chooses.
All 7th through 8th graders will be asked to attend the evaluations for House even if their plan is to only play travel.
All Junior and Senior teams will have one practice during the week and a game on Sundays. Little Timers and Starters players will just play on Sundays.
House Evaluations will be held on Oct. 7 and 9 at Cloonan Middle School: 4th and 5th from 6 to 7:15 p.m. and 6th through 8th from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. All players are expected to attend both days of evaluations.
Travel Tryouts will be held on Oct. 14 and 16 at Cloonan Middle School: 4th and 5th from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and 7th and 8th from 7:30 to 9 p.m. All players trying out for travel are expected to attend both days of tryouts.

In the Seniors Skills Competition, Morgan captured the 3-point contest championship while teammate Jenna Farro of Allyson Rioux took home the free throw contest title. Heather Fraioli of the Youngtimers 8th Grade Travel Team ran her way to the speed dribbling championship. In the Junior Skills, Nelson collected the speed dribbling championship while Charlie Karukas of Ivey, Barnum & O’Mara collected the free throw shooting championship.
The Starters Division was showcased at the annual "Futures Game" which features the league's fourth graders moving up and playing on 10-foot baskets. Twenty-eight young ladies participated in an exciting contest which gave all the parents and fans an inside look at the talent rising into the Junior Division next year!
In one of the most special moments of "Super Sunday", the Youngtimers organization awards the Allyson Rioux Sportsmanship Award to a special young lady from both the Senior and Junior Division. The Rioux family comes to “Super Sunday” each year to present the award which is named in honor of Allyson Rioux, one of Stamford’s greatest high school athletes who passed away at a young age from cancer. This year, Meaghan Lavelle of Tibbetts, Keating & Butler earned the award in the Senior Division while First American Title’s Theresa Lupinacci collected the honor in the Junior Division. Both girls exemplified the spirit of Allyson Rioux with their teamwork, sportsmanship and character throughout the Youngtimers season.
Also on Sunday, the Stamford Youngtimers 7th Grade Travel Team put up a valiant effort but fell just short to Wilton in the Fairfield County Basketball League A Division Championship Game 33-29. The game was close the whole way with the Youngtimers carrying a 25-24 lead into the fourth quarter but a strong finish by Wilton was the difference. Adira Orbach paced the Stamford attack with 16 points while Madison Cortell tossed in 10. Grace Hansen collected 11 rebounds for the Youngtimers, who finished with a 17-3 record.
The Stamford Youngtimers 8th Grade Travel Team captured the Fairfield County Basketball League AA Division Championship with a 63-52 win over Waterbury-North End on March 8 at Darien High School. The Youngtimers, who finished the season 29-2, avenged a loss to Waterbury from early January.
