RBA Announces Travel Tryouts for Grades Five Through Eight

RBA is pleased to announce the dates for travel basketball tryouts for the upcoming 2017-18 season.  RBA will be fielding teams in grades five through eight and players are only eligible to try out for their grade appropriate team (no playing up or down).  Subject to very limited exceptions, all players must be residents of Ridgefield in order to be eligible, per Fairfield County Basketball League rules.  If you have any questions about your eligibility to participate, please contact the travel director, Harold Moroknek.

Tryouts will be held on the following times and dates.  All sessions are 90 minutes long.  Players are expected to make all tryouts for their respective teams.  If a team has three dates, please plan to be at all three sessions.  If this presents an issue, please let the coach know at the first tryout.

RBA Travel Tryouts are just around the corner.  Here’s a guide to help you through the process.

1. Tryout dates are on the RBA website at www.rbahoops.com on the front page.  Check here frequently and before you leave the house as there is always the possibility of a late location change.

2. If you intend to try out, please let us know.  Send an email to admin@rbahoops.com.  The email should be brief.  Very brief.  It should contain only the name of the person trying out and the team (grade and gender).  So a typical email would be:

Travel tryout
John Smith, 5th grade boys

That’s it.  We are just compiling a list.

3. It is best for all players trying out to plan on being at all three tryouts.  If you are sick or injured, let us know.  But you will have the best chance to make your team by showing up for all three tryouts.  We are aware that it is fall sports season and we will accommodate to the best of our ability.  It is better to show up late than not show up at all.

4. For your own good, the good of all other players, and to keep the facilities in good shape, wear your indoor basketball shoes only inside the gym.  

5. Parents: though you are welcome to stay outside the gym during the tryout, it is best not to linger.  Our experience is that players do their best when they are not looking at their parents in between repetitions.  If your child has a compelling reason for you to stay, please let the coach know and we will make accommodations.

6. During basketball season, players are expected to make basketball their priority sport.

For questions about tryouts, please contact the travel director, Harold Moroknek at hlmoroknek@yahoo.com.
