2017-18 Boys Travel Teams

Hello Parents,

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:

ABTBA offers the opportunity for Avon Boys in the 5th through 8th grades to play at a level which encourages growth as an individual and as a team.

 

Up to two teams of typically 10 to 12 players in each grade may be selected. Each grade will field one team to play in the Connecticut Boys Travel Basketball League (CBTBL) a highly competitive league composed of larger towns largely in the Greater Hartford area.  A second team at the 6th, 7th and/or 8th grade level may be selected when turnout and ability allows. This team will play in the NCC Travel Basketball League (NCC) which provides strong competition from smaller towns in a similar region. Criteria for player selection will include, but not be limited to: athleticism, skill, attitude, commitment and the need for team balance.

 

Tryouts and open gyms will be held at Thompson Brook School (TBS) at the dates/times listed below.  Only players trying out and raters will be allowed in the gym for tryouts.  Those who have completed an application to coach a team will also be allowed to observe as well, if prior to the tryout he/she has completed and submitted their coaching application and volunteer form, authorizing a background check.
