Travel Basketball Tryouts will be conducted in late May and early June

HYAA will be holding travel team tryouts for the Boys 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades and for Girls 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. These grade levels are what the boys and girls will be going into in the fall, not their current grade. With sufficient interest, qualified coaching volunteers and available gym time we will also consider forming B teams based on the tryouts. Travel teams are highly competitive with no guaranteed playing time. In addition, travel players are expected to attend a minimum of 75% of their practices and games, failure to achieve this minimum level of participation can significantly affect playing time. Tryouts for Boys 3rd and Girls 3/4th grades will be in the Fall. You must complete and return the registration form no later than May 19th.

Travel Basketball Coaching Application

HYAA has an open coaching application process for all its travel basketball teams. If you have an interest in coaching one of the teams, please submit your coaching application to John Polivka at John.Polivka@comcast.net by May 22. Current coaches do not need to resubmit.

Travel Basketball Tryout Schedule

The tryout schedule occasionally changes due to unforeseen conflicts, please check back throughout the month to ensure you have the right times.
