Fri 10/20  7:00 - 7:45 pm - Rec/Travel Makeup Boys  Evaluations/Tryouts @ Borough Gym
- 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 cafeteria, but we ask that you NOT wait in the gym.
- 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 the travel try-out. Doing so will cover them for REC as well.
- 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 or the Make-Up. 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:
