Thank you again for your interest in Avon Boys Travel Basketball. Every year we are impressed with the energy and excitement the boys show during open gym and tryouts. This year we had a great turnout at tryouts, which means some boys were unfortunately not selected for a team. We highly encourage these boys to explore alternative options like Avon Recreation as a way to continue to learn this great game. There are many great stories in the ABTBA history where boys were not initially selected to play and ended up being strong contributors by their 8th great year.
Please find the results from this past week's tryouts below. As a reminder, the tryouts are done by independent evaluators who volunteer their time to make this as fair a process as possible. Earlier today the coaches were notified of their selection and they are also denoted below.
Congratulations to those boys who were selected to the teams below, PLEASE be sure to review times for uniform fitting this week, further down:
