Western Howard County Youth Basketball


We are excited to announce that Howard County Youth Program (HCYP) and Western Howard County Youth Basketball Association, Inc. (WHCYBA) are merging beginning June 2017!

The new organization will be HCYP. The new organization combines more than 100 years of successful youth services in Howard County. The organizations have provided almost identical programs for youth, and the merger will now allow for more streamlined and efficient program and administrative operations. The basketball experience for players and their families should be the same as it has been in previous years.
