Welcome to the Groton Dunstable Youth Basketball League
We are an organization devoted to providing a positive and supportive environment for kids to learn and play basketball.
We offer two distinct yet complimentary programs – recreation and travel. Rec is open to all (grades 2-12) and all skill levels. Travel (grades 4-8) is more competitive, as teams are selected on a tryout basis. We encourage players to participate in both programs and have structured our schedules so that may happen without conflict. The fundamental aim of each program is the same – skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us anytime at org
It is our hope that you and your child enjoy their GDYBL experience.
