At 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 four, volunteer hours 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 players that have outgrown their uniform, uniforms need to be purchased separately from the registration cost. Uniform fitting for your player will be held at try-outs on Sunday, Sept. 20th and Sept. 27th and on Oct. 1st at Central Park on from 6:00-8:00pm. Players can try on sizes for their uniform, they can also order warm ups and/or a bag. Whatever is ordered will need to be purchased before the uniforms are ordered.
