Program Philosophy:Kaneland Youth Basketball League was created to provide Boys and Girls who live in The Kaneland area with an opportunity to compete and to develop their skills. The league is designed to be competitive as well as to give all participants an equal opportunity to play. To accomplish this,  KYBL has instituted rules that require equal play. It is the coach’s responsibility to coach and to rotate the players. The coaches are volunteers and it is necessary for everyone to give them support, as the program could not function without them. NO INDIVIDUAL AWARDS SHALL BE AWARDED by coaches or parents Little Dribblers: The Little Dribblers Program has three primary objectives.


  • First, all participants will be given a thorough introduction to basketball fundamentals.
  • Second, interested volunteers will be given a chance to coach and learn about the KYBL program with the hope they will continue with their much appreciated volunteering in the following years.
  • Finally, a group of High School players will be given the opportunity to give back to the program by helping teach the kids and coaches some of the things they learned from the program

Volunteers: For KYBL to run a successful basketball program, we need volunteers to coach. We will provide a coaching manual to all coaches with practice outlines for each week.  Please indicate at least one volunteer job on the registration form.
