Smithfield Competitive Basketball Team.

--Teams are separated by school grade and will consist of approximately 8 to 12 players based on the coach’s discretion.  Team members are selected by the coaches and there is no guarantee that each player that attends tryouts will make the team. A second team may be formed should there be enough players and coaches.

--You need to be a player in the Smithfield Youth Basketball Recreational Program to be eligible to play.

--Teams will compete in approximately 8 to 11 tournaments within the RI Youth Basketball Association throughout the season, (November – March) culminating in the State Championships the 2nd week in March. Tournaments are held in a different RI town each weekend

--Teams are guaranteed to play a least two games each tournament, and have the potential to play up to 5 games in a weekend should your team advance to the tournament’s final game.  

--The cost to play on a team can be between $175 and $250 depending on the amount of tournaments a team participates in.  The cost includes a team uniform.  A weekend pass for adult admittance to each tournament is $5.00 

--Teams will hold one 90 minute practice session per week - Wednesday nights @ either Gallagher Middle School or Old County Road Elementary School.

News: 2018 Summer League Champions!
Posted by D. E., Last Updated: 25 days ago

Congratulations to each and every one of our 2018 

Smithfield Summer League Champions!

The 2018 Smithfield Summer League will be remembered for the challenges the league faced in trying to put on its season.  With Anna McCabe Courts under construction league action was moved to the courts in Deerfield Park before a lack of daylight forced the league to host its final regular season week of play and its playoffs within the Johnston Rec Center.

Our thanks to the men and women of the SYBA Board of Directors for taking the action necessary to preserve the playoffs and to our coaches who showed a lot of flexibility, organization and patience in going with the flow despite this hardship.  It's because of them - and our parents and participants too! -that the 2018 Summer Season resulted in great success.



3rd/4th Grade Champions:

Ball Hogs - Rally Point Racquet Club 

Players: Noah Albert, Corey Blakely Jr, Maddox Canton, Lucas Desjardins, Dylan King, Ethan MacGregor, William MacGregor, Devin Ruggieri, Devon Smith, Ronnie Williams  Head Coach: Corey Blakely

In a highly anticipated match-up the #2 seeded Ball Hogs ended up pulling off a big upset over the previously undefeated and #1 seeded Box Out Beasts of Navigant Credit Union - only the second time in the five year history of the summer league, in any of our four divisions, that an undefeated regular season has been achieved.  The 25-22 final score was a tribute to their unselfish play and fantastic team work.  Congratulations to both the Ball Hogs on taking home the championship and to the Beasts on their undefeated regular season achievement! 




5th/6th Grade Champions:

Hoop Genies - Safe Spray

Players: Harry Arsenis, Jared Atkinson, Chris Bennell, Connor Catarina, Ben Cicchitelli, Tristan Kennedy, Hayden Patenaude, Evan Pereira, Sean Subedi.  Head Coach: Derek Cicchitelli

The only division Championship that didn't involve a #1 seed playing a #2 seed!  This competitive division - all five of these teams finished within 2.5 games of one another - saw Safe Spray's #3 seeded Hoop Genies run around, over and through the #4 seeded Hurricanes of McMillen Orthodontics 48-15. Both teams had, just two days earlier, scored huge upsets over higher seeded teams to earn their place in the Championship.  Congratulations to the boys on both teams on their terrific summer seasons!




7th/8th Grade Champions:

 Big Baller Brand Trinity Sales

(Left to Right): Joey Smith, David Parenteau, Conner Fague, Head Coach Dave Russas, Domenic Mancino, Tyler Russas, AJ Hetu, Mikey Tartaglia.  Not Shown: Jameson Lytle, Luc Tremblay.

After splitting a pair of regular season games the boys from #2 seeded Trinity Sales' Big Baller Brand outlasted #1 seeded Droppin' Dimes of Anderson Winfield Funeral Home, 46-41 to take home the division Championship.  Our thanks to the participants and coaches from all five teams in this division for making this summer's playoffs a memorable one that saw some great basketball being played!




9th/10th Grade Champions:

Kyrie's Army Navigant Credit Union


Front (L-R): Mac Campbell, Evan Erbe, Owen Sweirad.  Missing: Lance Medeiros 

Back (L-R): Rob Squillante, Chris Olean, Sean Santos, Nathaniel Segee, Ben Gardiner, Jayce Poland

Head Coach: Frank Swierad

After engaging in two close and competitve regular season games the boys from #2 seeded Kyrie's Army of Navigant Credit Union scored an Uber-dramatic, upset victory on a crazy, buzzer beating shot to score a 42-40 upset over Parma Doors' #1 seeded Warriors  and take home the division Championship.  Our thanks to the participants of all four teams for making the 2018 summer season of this division a fun division to play in!
