The newly formed Northern Youth Basketball Association (NYBA) announced this week that it will hosts its first league this October. The league consists of three divisions, with Division I featuring youths from nine to 12 years of age, Division II for kids 13 to 15 years of age; and Division III for cagers 16 to 19 years of age. I used Shan Seman's article for SaipanTribune to cover this story.


NYBA official Joe Diaz, known by many as the head coach for the Garapan Rollers, said the league is tentatively set to kick off on Oct. 10, and extends an invitation to teams from Garapan, Navy Hill, Puerto Rico, Capitol Hill, Kagman, Tanapag, Achugao, San Roque, As Matuis, and Marpi to register for the association's inaugural competition.
"This is another opportunity for the kids to improve on their skills," Diaz said. "Even for those that have never played basketball, this is another opportunity for them to learn the game."
For more information or to pick up a registration form, contact Diaz at 322-7061, Cruz at 234-5562 or email at, Jovie Omar at 664-2502 or email at, or Ester Sablan at 287-5783, 287-6866, or email at
