2018- 2019 SAA  Boys Travel Basketball Team Selection Informations

Thanks to all who tried out for a spot on one of our Travel Basketball Teams. The teams are being finalized and announcements will be made on Tuesday, November 13, 2018  by email. Please note that we had almost 180 kids tryout for a spot. It is not possible to place every child on a team. For this reason some boys will be referred to our intramural program.

Notes:
1. This year we will be selecting fewer overall teams. This is to due to the following reasons: 1. limited gym time, 2. an attempt to strengthen the intramural program. For this reason, some players will be referred to the intramural program at the time of team selections. 

2. Your son must attend 1 session to be placed on a team. The more sessions that he attends the better he will be viewed by the evaluators and placed on the appropriate team for his ability.   Please note which age group your son will be placed into and have him attend this session.

3.  Your son must reside in the Springfield School District in order to eligible to play in the program and the league which we compete.Teams compete in the Delco Boys Basketball League  

4. Tryouts are closed to parents and siblings.

Travel Program Policy for 2018-2019
The boys travel program for the A division teams are in a win first league. These A level teams are playing in a competitive league. Each player will receive playing time in every game during the regular season. Some of the times, the time might be equitable among the players. In the playoffs and tournaments, playing time will likely be in favor of the more skilled players. This will be especially true as the age level increases.
