Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the scheduled tryout time to allow enough time for check-in. All tryouts will be closed to spectators. During tryouts, players will be evaluated by SBC coaches so they can determine which players are best for their teams. Players will go through different drills and scrimmages to show off their skill set. The coaches will be evaluating each players fundamentals (ball handling, shooting, passing, etc), attitudes, IQ, effort and leadership.
Team Selection Process:
After the second tryout, this is when the coaches will determine who will make the team and who will not based on how the players performed. SBC will send an email out 48hrs after the final tryout sessions. In this email, we will let you know if your child was selected for the team or if they were not selected. For the players that were not selected, we will recommend and provide one of our training programs.
The players that were selected, the families will be notified of their coach and practice times and days. In this email there will be the necessary paperwork, the different player packages we are offering and any additional information needed to commit to the SBC Travel Basketball Program.
Commitment Day is when players spots are secured and they are officially enrolled into the SBC Travel Basketball program. On this day necessary paperwork will be turned in, player packages will be selected with first payments made, uniform fittings and a parent meeting with your coach. Here are the commitment days for each grade:
Boys grades 4th-8th & Girls grades 6th-8th: February 22nd
Boys grades 9-12th: March 7th
We believe that there are lifelong lessons found in participating in team sports. Our mission, goal and passion is to empower your child to experience, grow and embrace these lessons through our SBC Family concepts which include:
The special bond that is created within our SBC Family to strive together to achieve a common goal
The intensity of competition; the thrill, the joy and the disappointments
The sense of triumph that arises from overcoming adversity
The satisfaction that comes from the pursuit of excellence
The sense of accomplishment that comes from the mastery of discipline
We want our players to be prepared with the tools to succeed on and off the court and we will provide them with a platform to be successful. We encourage our players to work hard in the classroom as well as on the court. Our players will have the mindset of what it takes to be a student athlete.
The SBC coaching staff is experienced and understands the importance of individual development and team play. As teachers of the game of basketball and life, we will help prepare our players for the experiences they will encounter. We will work hard to ensure that our players are prepared for each game with the necessary training so they can succeed and play to their full potential. The SBC staff wants all of our players to be active, work hard for their SBC Family and accept everything in a positive mindset.
