2022 Girls Travel Basketball Tryouts

This year's travel basketball tryouts will be held starting October 19 at Ft. Couch Middle School.  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.  Players are not required to attend both sessions, but attendance at both is highly recommended.  Players should wear a reversible, numbered rec basketball 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.  Tryouts are closed to parents, but parents are asked to attend a brief introductory meeting to get an overview on the program and the expectations from players and families.  Tryout sessions are estimated to last approximately one hour each.

Other Important Information:

  • Pre-registration is required for all participants and is available via: Mandatory Pre-Registration Form
  • All parents are requested to review the Girls Travel Basketball Principles and Parent Code of Conduct prior to completing registration.  Practices will start following team announcements in preparation for league play on or around December 1.
  • All Travel Basketball players in grades 4 through 6 are required to participate in the Recreation Basketball Program conducted by the USCAA.  Registration for Recreation Basketball is anticipated to be open starting in mid-November for the season starting in early January and continuing into the first week of March.
  • While the program budget has yet to be finalized, fees are estimated to be approximately $150-200/player.  This cost is separate and in addition to costs for the Recreation Program mentioned above.

About the Program

USCAA offers Recreation Basketball for girls in grades 1 through 6 and Travel Basketball for girls in grades 4 through 8.  

Recreation basketball is intended to give the kids exposure to the game and develop skills through practice and game play starting in January and running into the first week of March.  The coed 1st and 2nd grade program will run one night a week (typically on Saturday night) with focus on basic skill development progressing to introductory short sided games. Girls in grades 3/4 and 5/6 will be assigned to teams coached by USCAA volunteers.  Teams will typically practice one night a week with games scheduled every Saturday for the duration of the program.

Travel basketball is the competitive basketball offering in Upper St. Clair for girls who wish to play against other local teams in a competitive environment.  Teams are selected based upon skill at our annual evaluations, typically held in October, with the goal of forming 2 teams per grade.  Travel basketball teams participate in competitive leagues with other local townships and in tournaments.  In addition, we host our own tournament in February. The travel basketball season starts in November and runs through March. To qualify for travel basketball, in addition to other requirements, a player must register and participate fully in recreation basketball.
