Tryouts for USCAA Boys Basketball Travel Teams
2020 – 2021 Season

This year's boys travel basketball tryouts will be held November 9th through 21st

While we do not know the specifics of how the year will play out, we know that the current pandemic will make things different for players, coaches and parents.  By working together we hope to achieve the common goal of giving our boys the opportunity to play basketball this season. 

Two sessions have been scheduled for each grade to provide an alternative for unavoidable conflicts and give the players the best chance to be seen by the evaluation team. 

Due to the limitations related to COVID-19 this year's tryout will need to operate differently than in prior years. 

·        As with all USCAA sports, participants are required to adhere to the current Return to Play Guidelines posted at USCAASports.org.  As part of Travel Basketball registration guardians for all participants must complete the 2020-2021 Travel Basketball Waiver prior to attending tryouts.  The waiver can be found at the following link:  USCAA 2020 Winter Sports Waiver

·        Players are to be dropped off at the main entrance to the building no more than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled tryout and it is asked that parents do not enter the school. 

·        Check in will be conducted directly inside the front door where players will be greeted by a USCAA representative.

·        Players should wear a black and white rec basketball jersey reversible jersey to each tryout session, and bring their own basketball.  If a player does not have a jersey, one will be provided for use during the tryout, however the supply is limited.   

·        All players are asked to wear face coverings upon entry to the school building.  Players will not be required to wear face coverings during tryouts, but all adults conducting the tryouts will be wearing face coverings. 

·        Please wait outside the school to pick up your son at the conclusion of each tryout.

The USCAA intends to coordinate two travel teams for each of the following grade levels: 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th this year.  The USCAA intends to coordinate one travel team for 3rd grade this year. If there is not enough participation or available gym time at a specific grade level, the Commissioner and the Assistant Commissioners may decide to only coordinate one team. The USCAA may also coordinate an additional travel team in any grade this year if (i) there is enough interest with the players to be selected at a tryout coordinated by the Commissioner and the Assistant Commissioners, (ii) there exists a coach who meets the criteria of a travel basketball coach as set forth in the USCAA Boys Basketball Rules and Regulations, and (iii) an appropriately competitive avenue for competition exists.
