Welcome to Herndon Optimist Youth Travel Basketball!

Herndon Optimist Youth Travel Basketball (HOYTB), is one of the sports sponsored by the Herndon Optimist Club. Our mission is to provide youth an opportunity to enjoy a positive basketball experience, learn good sportsmanship and teamwork, and improve their basketball skills and physical condition. Our travel league is open to girls and boys in 4th through 8th grade who are residents in the 20170, 20171, or 20194 zip codes.

The HOYTB league is more competitive and demanding than our house basketball league (Haley Smith Basketball).  Participants play on teams where the skill levels are more consistent and play against stronger competition than in the house basketball league. Teams are chosen through a competitive tryout process, practices are two nights a week, and games are held both on weeknights and weekends in gyms across Fairfax County, as well as in Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church, and Loudoun counties.

Travel team tryouts have been completed and coaches have begun the process of notifying players of team selections. Players who have been selected must complete their Travel Basketball Winter 2017-2018 registration, including payment and submission of address and grade documentation no later than Nov 1 or they will be dropped from the team.  All coaches and assistant coaches must also be registered by Nov 1. Click on "Register Online" on the left side menu to register as a player or volunteer (coach).

If you have additional questions or need assistance, please use the "Feedback" option on the left side menu and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
