Two Tryout sessions have been completed in each grade and players will be notified in the next 7 to 10 days.
The YAC sponsors Travel Basketball Teams in addition to the In-House Program, for boys in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Each team is enrolled in the Tri-County Basketball League (TCBL) with the option of also participating in the Brewster Tri-State Basketball Super League or the House of Sports Basketball Super League.
Teams play regular season games from November through March. Teams may also participate in tournaments during the season, as well as year-end playoffs based on performance.
Participants in the Travel Program may opt to play in the In-House Program as well to further develop their skills and knowledge of the game.
In the past, the cost per player has been between $325 - $425. This includes gym time, referees, and league participation fees.
There will be two tryouts for each grade level. We encourage players to try to make it to both tryouts, but players only need to attend one tryout to be considered for the team.
We expect to have one travel team each for 4th and two travel teams each for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades depending on the number of players, if we have enough coaches, and our available gym space.
