Travel Basketball Tryouts
HYAA will be conducting travel
basketball team tryouts for girls 3rd/4th grade
and boys 3rd grade (the grades the boys and
girls are in right now). Travel teams are highly
competitive, there will need to be some cuts as
part of the evaluation process and there is no
guaranteed playing time. The HYAA recreation
program, which is more developmental and ensures
a relatively even level of playing time, will be
accepting sign-ups in late October.
