ESBA will be partnering with NIKE Team Florida this upcoming travel season by participating in their Florida Youth Basketball League (FYBL). The FYBL is designed to improve the competitive, instructional and developmental environments for boys travel teams in grades 6-8. Following the model of NIKE’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL), Nike Team Florida has developed a season long format that includes league play, player/parent/coaching clinics and a championship tournament.
During the 2014 season, 15 programs competed in the inaugural FYBL and we are expanding our reach for the 2015 season to include 45 teams in 3 geographical divisions. NTF is proactive in developing the basketball player and giving them as much exposure as possible.
- Development: While competitive games are extremely important, the FYBL also provides more development opportunities for your players, parents & coaches with four (4) instructional clinics for each team at all Division Sessions.
- Exposure: Nike Team Florida has had over 100 Division I players and dozens of professional players pass through our program over the last 15 years. NTF has strong relationships with every major scouting service as well as the ability to pick up the phone and call any college program in the country.
The FYBL is a great opportunity for ESBA to get South Florida players in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade the opportunity to further their development at a high level, as well as gain exposure.
