Welcome to the Groton Dunstable Youth Basketball League!
We are an organization devoted to providing a positive and supportive environment for kids to learn and play basketball.
We offer two distinct yet complimentary programs – recreation and travel. Rec is open to all (grades 3-12) and all skill levels. Travel (grades 4-8) is more competitive, as teams are selected on a tryout basis. We encourage players to participate in both programs and have structured our schedules so that may happen without conflict. The fundamental aim of each program is the same – skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us anytime at
It is our hope that you and your child enjoy their GDYBL experience.
