The Folsom Youth Basketball Association (FYBA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of Folsom's youth through a quality basketball program. The FYBA’s mission is to teach the fundamental skills of basketball within a fun, safe and healthy environment to the youth of Folsom through a recreational program and to provide the participating adults with the necessary training & tools to that end.
The FYBA is a recreational program for girls and boys in grades 1 - 12 who live or attend school in Folsom. The league accepts players of all skills and abilities. Players do not need to have any previous experience to play in the league. All registered players are placed on teams through a draft process to create balanced teams with teams consisting of both experienced and inexperienced players. This allows players with developing skills to learn by associating with players with more advanced skills. The league is divided into divisions based on grade with separate boys and girls divisions. Divisions may be combined depending on the number of players registered for each division. Games and practices are held in school and city indoor gymnasiums through our involvement with the Folsom Athletic Association (FAA).
Players in grades 1-2 will have a combined 90-minute practice/game each Saturday during the season with no practice during the week. The practices/games are played on baskets placed at 8 ½ feet rather than the standard 10 feet high. Practices typically last 45 minutes and games 45 minutes for these divisions.
Players in grades 3-12 will have a single weekday practice lasting one hour as well as a game each Saturday lasting one hour. Team practices begin late November or early December, the 10 season games begin the first part of January and end mid-March.
The FYBA is geared to provide services to those families that live within the city boundaries of Folsom. Non-Folsom residents may sign up for the league but will be charged an additional fee and will be admitted only on a space-available basis after all Folsom residents have been accommodated. Due to the popularity of the league and the limited gym space available in Folsom, we cannot accept any players after the close of the registration period.
