Nesyb: NESYB is a non-profit organization (501c3) that serves boys and girls from kindergarten through varsity players. NESYB welcomes people of all ethnic groups, income levels and genders. our program had existed in one form or another on Madison's North/East Side for over twenty years and was officially incorporated in March 1995. NESYB is run entirely by its dedicated volunteers, as the program has no paid staff.
The primary goal of the North/East Side Sherman Youth Basketball (NESYB) program is to positively influence the lives of young people through the vehicle of basketball. NESYB emphasizes respect, cooperation and good sportsmanship among participants. Participants learn the value of teamwork and the importance of discipline, hard work, and responsibility; thereby, enhancing personal fulfillment and self-esteem. The program provides an outlet by which participants channel their energy in a positive and productive manner.
Our Basketball Seasons: Fall/Winter Season - Sept through March: We have kindergarten through 8th grade teams during this season. Our teams are comprised of players from the Madison East school district. Our teams play in the Tri-County and YMCA Leagues and the more competitive teams play in tournaments as well.
Spring/Summer Season - March through July: We have 2nd grade through Varsity players during this season. Many of our middle school and high school teams are traveling tournament teams. Some of our teams also participate in various summer leagues in the area. We do create "AAU" teams at various age levels, as long as they are teams that are capable of competing at the highest level possible in Wisconsin. Our players during this season may come from Madison and other neighboring cities/towns.
Team Placement Tryouts:Before every season, NESYB holds "team placement tryouts". Boys and girls are placed on teams accordingly. However, if we do not have any volunteer coaches or if we do not have enough players, then we may not be able to create a team.
Donations: NESYB accepts any donations from anyone/any business. We are a 501c3 organization and your donation may be tax deductible (please consult your tax advisor).
