The Monocacy Youth Basketball Association (MYBA) was established in 1991. It was formed by three Frederick County communities consisting of 17 youth basketball teams. The purpose of the league was to establish a recreational youth basketball program for boys and girls in grades 3-12. MYBA strives for a high level of play within our instructional and recreational framework. Everyone who registers with a community affiliated with MYBA will be placed on a boys or girls team with a must play rule. Today, in our 22nd year, we have expanded the league to 24 communities and almost 300 teams within Frederick, Carroll and Washington Counties!

Following is the MYBA weather closing policy:
ALL MYBA games are canceled when the snow emergency plan goes into effect for Frederick County. If snow emergency is lifted, games will begin 1 hour later (double-check with your coordinator). If the snow emergency plan goes into effect when a game is already in progress, or both teams and the refs are present and ready to begin, the game can continue to be played if the facility rules permit. You can check the snow emergency status at www.chart.state.md.us.
Only Carroll County games (EWE, MAM, NWM, NWS, not MCA) are canceled if the Carroll County snow emergency plan goes into effect, but Frederick County does not. Once Carroll County goes into the snow emergency plan, games are canceled for the entire weekend. If the snow emergency plan is in effect on 8:00pm Friday night, Carroll County games are canceled for the following day. Even though games in Carroll County might be canceled, games will still be played in Frederick County as long as the snow emergency plan is not in effect.
This is a little confusing, so if you are unsure, parents should call only their coaches. Coaches should call only their coordinator. Coordinators should call their phone tree coordinator. Please err on the side of safety if the roads are questionable.
