YAC TRAVEL BASKETBALL TRYOUTS 2016 / 2017

YAC TRAVEL BASKETBALL TRYOUTS

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.

Players are introduced to basketball through the Pee Wee Division for 2nd graders.   The players participate in a clinic like environment and scrimmage at the end of each session.

 

3rd and 4th graders play in the Bantam Division.  They practice one night a week and play one game a week on Saturdays.  The games are played with smaller basketballs (28.5") on regulation 10 ft. rims.    

 

The Junior (5th - 6th Grade) and Senior (7th - 8th Grade) Divisions are comprised of 12 to 16 teams with 10 players per team.  These divisions have player evaluations as well as a player draft that is usually conducted in late October or early November. Practices are held one weeknight each week and games are played once a week on Saturdays.  Standings are kept and there are playoffs at the end of the year.

 

The High School Division is for players in grades 9 through 12. There is one  game a week played on Sunday afternoon or evening and no practices. 

 

The YAC also sponsors Travel Basketball teams for Grades 4 through 8.  Teams play in the Tri-County Basketball League (TCBL) and / or Tri-State Basketball Super League (TSBSL) at the Brewster Sports Center and play regular season games from November through March.  Teams also participate in tournaments during the season, as well as year-end playoffs.  Playing time on travel teams is up to each team's coach and playing time is not guaranteed to each player.
