North Port Youth Basketball, Inc. was established in 2006. This organization was developed in 2006, striving to become a leading not for profit organization in North Port, Florida. Initially it all began with approximately 200 children our first season and have reached our maximum capacity of approximately 300 children for the last several seasons. Many of our kids rotating between winter and summer ball, while others prefer one or another allowing them to play other sports or activities. **MORE GYM SPACE IS NEEDED TO ACCOMMODATE THESE PLAYERS**
NPYB was established to promote and provide a positive environment where recreational basketball skills are taught for the children residing in North Port area. The organization as a whole believes it is necessary to encourage positive sportsmanship, develop good playing skills and promote friendly competitive relationships among the participants, coaches and parents.
