Important Traveling Information

Try-Out Process: Players will need to be registered for Traveling Try-Out, this is separate from registering to play basketball. Registration for basketball will open at the end of August, early September.
Try-Outs will be closed door. Parents will check in players, players will enter the gym, in which case doors will be closed. Parents can wait in the hall way or come back and pick up at the end of their try-outs.

Volunteer Deposit Check: While checking in, parents will be turning in a $200 Volunteer Deposit Check. One parent for each child playing Traveling Basketball; must complete a five hour, volunteer shift during the Anoka/Ramsey Tournament. Girl’s Parents will volunteer during the Girls Tournament and the Boy’s Parents will volunteer during the Boys Tournament. The checks will then be returned to each parent at the tournament they support. Our intention is not to cash these checks; we do NOT want this money. We need your time to help during these tournaments, this is our made course of revenue to help keep costs down.

Traveling Uniforms: For new Traveling players or previous Traveling players that their uniform doesn't fit, uniforms need to be purchased separately from the registration cost. Uniform fitting for your player will be held at all of the try-out dates. Players can try on sizes for their uniform, they can also get sized for warm ups and a bag is optional.
*NEW* Ordering and paying for Traveling Uniforms this year will be completed on-line by you. As usual, players can keep their uniforms and be reused until they no longer fit, current style is know longer available, or a player is not playing or doesn't make a Traveling Team.

Player Registration: Teams will be communicated last week of August or first week of September. Players selected to play on a Traveling Team, must register by the end of September. Registration fees can either be paid in full at time of registration, or payment options can be selected. Payments will be made in September at time of registration, a payment October 1st, and final payment November 1st. The registration fee is $355, this covers; Gym Rental for Practices, Tournament Entry Fee, etc.

Team Basket: Each team will be required to donate a basket full of goodies for the annual Hoopla. The team parent can decide what they want to do, each family donates $5–$10 toward the basket.

Now that School is out, there is no better time then now to pick up a basketball and start working on your 10,000 shot challenge. If you haven't started, you still have time to jump in.
