Welcome to Haley Smith Basketball!

Haley Smith Basketball, also called Herndon Optimist Youth House Basketball (HOYHB), is one of the sports sponsored by the Herndon Optimist Club. Our mission is to provide youth of all skill levels an opportunity to enjoy a positive basketball experience, learn good sportsmanship and teamwork, and improve their basketball skills and physical condition. 

Our recreational house league is open to girls and boys in 1st through 12th grade who are residents of Fairfax or Loudoun Counties. We offer: 

  • Girls teams for grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-12 (our girls teams play games with teams from neighboring leagues) 
  • Boys teams for grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 (our boys teams play games with teams in our own league)
  • An adapted basketball program called "Buddy Basketball" for youth in grades 1-8 who have disabilities and receive assistance to play basketball from high school student and adult volunteers
  • Training programs for new and returning referees and scorekeepers, which are paid positions.

Registration for the Winter 2018-2019 season will open on August 1, 2018. Please check back at that time for the "Register Now" option in the left side menu.

Additional information about our league can be found under "Forms and Documents". If you have more questions or need assistance, please use the "Feedback" option on the left side menu and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We look forward to having your family as part of our Haley Smith‚ Basketball community!
