2019-2020 BOYS TRAVEL TRYOUT DATES AND TIMES

The 2019-2020 Boys Travel Tryouts will be held on Saturday, September 14th and Sunday, September 15th.  Tryouts will be held for 3rd through 8th grade.  Each grade will tryout individually and all tryouts will be held at Roseville Area High School.  Tryout times are listed below and the times are for both Saturday and Sunday.  Should the trainers and evaluators determine that only one day will be needed for a specific grade, those families will be notified at the end of Saturday tryouts.  RYBA is well aware that many of these kids are involved in other sports and activities, and we have done our best to select the best weekend and times in order to avoid any conflicts.  While attendance for both days is not mandatory in order to make a team, we encourage all players to attempt to make both days in order to receive a full and complete evaluation.  Please feel free to reach out the the Boys Travel Director, Chris Bloomquist (651-226-8399 / christianmbloomquist@gmail.com) with any questions or concerns.

PRE AND POST TRYOUT "FALL TUNEUP" SESSIONS

Similar to previous seasons, RYBA will be providing "pre tryout" sessions the week leading up to actually tryouts to give the kids an idea of what to expect the weekend of the 14th and 15th.  These sessions will include a number of skills and drills that they will be evaluated on the weekend of the tryouts.  This gives both the kids and families a sense of what to expect at the travel level.  RYBA directors will also be holding a Q & A for parents during these sessions as some families may be new to the travel level.  Upon completion of tryouts, we will also be holding "post tryout" sessions for all RYBA players (whether they play travel or not).  These have been implemented simply for additional gym time for the players and to get them ready and into "basketball shape" before the season starts.  We are very excited about where RYBA and Roseville Basketball are headed in the coming seasons.  Sessions are as follows: 

September 9th, 10th, 12th (pretryouts the week leading up to tryouts).  6pm to 8pm at Roseville Middle School (NOT ROSEVILLE AREA HIGH SCHOOL).

 

September 16th, 18th, 25th (post tryout sessions).  6pm to 8pm at Roseville Middle School (NOT ROSEVILLE AREA HIGH SCHOOL).  PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE SESSIONS WILL BE OPEN TO ALL RYBA PLAYERS - REGARDLESS IF THEY PLAY TRAVEL OR NOT.

Boys Winter Classic - Our Fund-Raising Tournament

RYBA is able to reduce the cost of travel basketball by hosting a fund-raising tournament each year.  The 2018 Winter Classic will be held February 24-25.  Around 200 teams will participate in our tournament.  The tournament is planned and teams are recruited to it by volunteer directors who work on it during most of the off-season.  To have enough help to be able to run the tournament itself, we require RYBA travel families to work a number of shifts at the tournament. Usually this amounts to approximately 10 hours per player. This tournament reduces each players cost of participation by approximately $500.
