Program Philosophy:Kaneland Youth Basketball League was created to provide boys 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. The program is designed to be competitive and each game will have a score. NO INDIVIDUAL AWARDS SHALL BE AWARDED by coaches or parents.  Teams will compete in Kane County Rural League and will play a few away games against Sugar Grove, Hinckley Big Rock and Maple Park.

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.
