2014-15 Youngtimers Travel Teams Rosters Finalized
The Stamford Youngtimers Board would like to thank the 40+ kids that tried out for our travel teams this year. Unfortunately, we can’t keep all the girls that tried out but we are certain the house league experience will help them improve their skills and we’d love to see them tryout again next year. Below are the rosters for the Stamford Youngtimers Travel Teams for this season … the 5th grade will hold its first practice on Thursday (October 23) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Cloonan while the 7th and 8th grade teams will hold their first practice from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday at Cloonan. Congrats to the young ladies who made the teams!
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 10 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: 5th and 6th 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.

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.
Waterbury controlled the glass in the opening period with a 19-9 advantage but Stamford managed to stand tied at 14 after one.

Stamford took control in the third quarter, forcing eight Waterbury turnovers in the period to collect a 22-13 advantage and grab a 50-38 lead after three quarters. Waterbury could get no closer than nine points the rest of the way.
Stamford held the runnerup to just 28.8 percent shooting for the game and forced 22 turnovers. Over the final three quarters, the Youngtimers were almost even on the boards with Waterbury holding a slim 37-36 advantage after their dominance in the first quarter.

McKenna Frank played an outstanding floor game finishing with 11 points, 11 assists, six rebounds and four steals. Brooke Kelly accounted for nine points, four assists and three steals for the Youngtimers.
The 8th grade captured both the regular season and tournament championships of the FCBL. Stamford received great contributions from Lizzy DeMarkey, Heather Fraioli, Julia Howe, Sydney Leeds, Gloria Mattioli, Kaleha Morgan and Molly Murray throughout the season en route to one of the finest seasons in Youngtimers history. Earlier in the day on March 8, Frank was a co-winner of the Fairfield County 3-point shooting championship.
