El Dorado Hills Youth Basketball Inc. is a non-profit youth basketball program based in El Dorado Hills. Its mission is to provide an organized basketball program promoting fundamental basketball skills and sportsmanship. EDHYB was started by community members and is operating its 19th consecutive seasons. The non-profit organization is run entirely by volunteers and all games are played locally.
Consistent with its mission, EDHYB is a competitive, recreational league. There are no cuts; no child is refused participation in EDHYB based on their ability. The coaches make tremendous effort to evaluate each child so that the teams will be created as fairly as possible. Because it is a recreational league, strict playing time rules exist and are enforced. That said, the league does have a competitive element to it, allowing coaches some discretion in who plays when.
