What is 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 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 on weeknights, Saturdays, and Sundays in gyms across Fairfax County, as well as in Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church, and Loudoun counties. There are no minimum playing time rules as there are in our house league. Coaches determine the frequency and length of player's time on the court during games.

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.
