Rec Teams


The LMYB Recreation Team Program is a program intended to provide a fun and instructional environment for players who do not make an Athletic Team or choose not to tryout for an Athletic Team.


LMYB forms Instructional Teams for 2nd graders and Recreation Teams for 3rd through 12th grade boys and girls at two levels – Recreation and High Recreation.  After the Athletic Team tryout process, the LMYB board will form rosters for Recreation Teams.  Recreation Teams are formed based on a couple criteria.  Those criteria are prioritized in the following manner:

  1. Rosters are formed based the organization’s needs – to balance.
  2. Rosters will then take into account the team the player was on from the previous year, especially if the coach is returning.
  3. Parent and player requests to play or not play for their previous coach.
  4. Coach requests to have the same team/players if possible.

Recreation Teams will play against other Recreation Teams within CPYBL’s league and they are usually within the same geographic area as Little Miami.  The season is a 10-11 week season and there will typically be two practices per week for grades 2-8 (one practice per week for grades 9-12) and one game per weekend with an end-of-season tournament.  There is an option for a 20-game schedule for Recreation Teams as well for an additional fee.


The Recreation Team registration fees vary between a 10-game schedule or a 20-game schedule and those fees include practice times, uniforms, ref fees and league fees. Instructional Team (2nd grade) registration fees are a reduced fee. There will be two registration windows for Recreation Teams:

  1. 2nd-6th grade registration – which will occur after the Athletic Team tryout process
  2. 7th-12th grade registration – which will occur after the Little Miami School District Basketball tryout process

Recreation Team fees do not include a shooting shirt.  Shooting shirts can be purchased separately through our uniform vendor for a fee.
