Makeup Evaluations/Tryouts Canceled

Hi there,

            This message is being sent out to everyone in 3rd to 8th grade:

          We found out that there is no real need to have Makeup Evaluations/Tryouts this Friday since most of the players who signed up already attended the sessions this week or will be doing so tonight. 

            For those who weren't able to attend the sessions held this week and were planning on attending the Friday makeup sessions, please review the information below.  If your son/daughter attended Evaluations/Tryouts this week, there is no need to read any further.  You will hear more information from your team's coach once the rosters are approved by the MPBA board and posted to the website. ​

 

If you haven't signed up your son/daughter yet, plan on signing up, and weren't able to attend the Evals/Tryouts this week:

Please sign up as soon as possible and your son/daughter will be placed on a team provided that we have enough space on a team.  The 3/4 grade boys teams are pretty full, so, if you are planning on signing up at this level, please sign up and respond to moplainsbasketball@gmail.com when you do. 

 

If you have signed up your son/daughter and weren't able to attend the Evals/Tryouts this week:

Your son/daughter will definitely be placed on a team.  Your team's coach will reach out once the rosters are approved by the MPBA board and posted to the website.

Makeup Evaluations/Tryouts (3rd to 8th grade only):

Fri 10/19  6:00 - 6:45 pm - Rec/Travel Makeup Girls Evaluations/Tryouts @ Borough Gym

Fri 10/19  7:00 - 7:45 pm - Rec/Travel Makeup Boys  Evaluations/Tryouts @ Borough Gym

If you have any questions, please respond back to moplainsbasketball@gmail.com.

 

Thanks,

Fri 10/19  7:00 - 7:45 pm - Rec/Travel Makeup Boys  Evaluations/Tryouts @ Borough Gym

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

 

- Please have your son/daughter wear their reversible maroon/white rec jersey from last year if possible to REC evaluations. For incoming 3rd graders, do not worry you will be provided a jersey once the season starts.

 

- Parents: during evaluations you are welcome to wait in the lobby.  Please DO NOT wait in the gym or cafeteria as there will player evaluation and team selections going on.

 

- If your son or daughter is interested in playing both rec AND travel (totally acceptable and encouraged for the basketball enthusiast) then they should attend BOTH the travel try-out and rec player evaluation. This is give the coaches at both levels the ablilty to see each player for team selections.

- If your son or daughter is only playing one level they need only attend REC Evals for REC level basketball or TRAVEL Try-Outs for Travel.

 

- If your son or daughter has a conflict with attending REC Evals that is not a problem we will assign them a team. The EVALS are designed to allow coaches the ability to see skill levels in action so that teams can be balanced during selection.

 

- If your son or daughter is playing TRAVEL they MUST attend their scheduled try-out. This is important for the following: IF try-out numbers are high and cuts need to be made we will not reopen try-outs for someone who did not attend as that would not be fair to all involved.

 

- 3rd-8th Rec and All Travel Teams will be finalized by end of October and players will be contacted by their Coaches once the MPBA approves all rosters/coaches.

 

If you have any questions, please reply to this e-mail or send an e-mail to: moplainsbasketball@gmail.com.

 

Thanks,
