Interested candidates for the travel basketball program must attend a minimum of one tryout. Past participation does not guarantee a spot on the team. Candidates are encouraged to attend as many tryouts as possible. There is no fee to tryout but candidates selected for the team will be required to pay a participation fee.

This is a highly competitive program and successful candidates are expected to make a full commitment to the team. Practices and games can be on any day of the week. Practices begin in mid-October with games starting in December. The season concludes in late-February - early March. There are 2-3 games per week in addition to practices. The teams compete in local leagues against neighboring communities and potentially tournament play.
