A Note to You:

The Basketball Committee and BYC thanks you for your time and commitment. There is no youth program without "you".
Grade 2 and below are considered "Clinic", with emphasis on basketball fundamentals, not competition.
Starting in 3rd grade, our #1 goal in team selection is PARITY. As parents, no one knows the age group better than you. Please use this as the basis for developing competitive teams throughout your league. Help other coaches who don't know the boys/girls as well as you. This is especially needed when multiple grades play together.
Neither the winning nor losing team likes or appreciates blowout games. Competition makes everyone better, win or lose.

Compliance Requirements for Coaches and Volunteers

BYC Picture IDs are required starting September 2016. Please read the BYC E-Alerts for details.

Compliance is required for all employees/volunteers of BYC and includes the following steps with an additional step depending on your time within the state of PA.  All steps required need to be completed to start coaching/volunteering.  This will cover the entire season from November to March. 

1.  Register on the BYC website to get in the system. Here is the link for the BYC BACKGROUND CHECK

2.  Pennsylvania Criminal Record Checks (Act 34)    Submitted online and can print/save immediately.  Keep a copy for yourself and turn a copy into your GM.  (required every 36 months)

 3.  Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances (Act 151)   Submitted online and you will get an email outcome that can be printed. Keep a copy for yourself and turn a copy into your GM.  (Required every 36 months)

 4.  Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Criminal Background Checks (Act 114) is done at local FedEx or UPS outlets. Complete only if residence in PA has been less than 10 years.  $25-30  (Required every 36 months)

Register first before being fingerprinted at:

* some outlets do required appointments while others are a first come/first serve basis

* print a copy of your registration to have your Cogent Id# as a record and turn a copy into your GM.

5.   Concussion Prevention education (live seminar or on-line learning module below)  Required every year.  BYC will track this information from attendance at a live seminar or completion of the on-line learning module.  Print out a copy of the certificate upon completion of the online training and turn into your GM.


The Board will review any compliance “allowances” that may come back on reports.  Only the board member will contact the coach regarding any compliance issues.  Maintaining privacy is a top priority.


Volunteer clearances if under the age of 18 is waived, but they will still register and complete an in-house background check here: BYC BACKGROUND CHECK


BYC Basketball Committee will be instituting rule changes in the 2016-17 season. A detailed description will be posted soon.
