TCYBA History

History of the Tri-City Youth Basketball Association

For many years the YMCA ran a youth basketball program for about 300 boys and girls in the Coquitlam area in a number of elementary schools. In November of 1999, the YMCA made it known that they would no longer be running a youth basketball programs. A meeting of concerned parents, coaches, players and volunteers met at the Pinetree Community Centre with a representative of the Coquitlam Parks and Leisure and Basketball BC in January of 2000 and discussed how to keep youth basketball programs in the area viable. During this meeting it was discovered that the city was running their own basketball program for about 100 youth from grades 8 to 12 and a Jr Grizzlies program had been running for two years in the Eagleridge area for about 50 grade 4 and 5 boys.

Concerned individuals from each group decided to join together and start a new Non-Profit Society known as the Tri City Youth Basketball Association (TCYBA). The first Board of Directors of the TCYBA was formed (see below) after the General Meeting and met every week for many months with on going help and support from the City of Coquitlam and Basketball BC.

Running the Jr. Grizzlies program (now Steve Nash Youth Basketball) for all ages, the TCYBA began and continues to grow and expand each year.

Thank you to the many individuals who have served on the past TCYBA Board of Directors and the Current Board of Directors.
