Below are the rosters for the 2016-2017 Avon Girls Travel Basketball Season. I wanted to thank all the players who attended our tryouts earlier in the week and for your effort and spirit demonstrated over the two days. If you were not selected for a team, we hope you strongly consider playing in the Avon Rec and Parks program this year and continue to work on your basketball skills. For those selected, please look for an email from your coach as we have a lot of tasks to get accomplished as our first games are only a few weeks away.
Thank you very much to all who participated in the travel basketball tryouts over the past week at TBS. All of the kids were attentive, respectful and played hard. We were very excited to see such a strong turnout this year.
Each year we leverage a team of independent evaluators to make the difficult decisions as to who made the various teams. With well over 100 boys for only 70 slots, the evaluators shared that it was difficult making the final selections this year.
To those boys that we were not able to accommodate, we hope you can take part in one of the other great opportunities to further developing your game either via the Avon Parks and Recreation program or through other options available in the Farmington Valley area.
This week we will announce the date and time of a mandatory meeting where we will get your son's uniform size and number preference. At this meeting, you must:
(1) Pay the $385 fee (via check made out to ABTBA or cash)
(2) Bring a copy of your son's birth certificate
(3) Bring a copy of one proof of residency (i.e. driver's license or utility bill with home address on it)
(4) Receive and return a CBTBL Code of Conduct signed by player and at least one parent.
(5) Register on Avon Travel Basketball Website
NOTE----Returning players from last year, we are not changing our uniforms style this season so if your uniform jersey and shorts from last season still fit and are in good condition, please bring them to the fitting and we will make sure they are still in good shape and there are no conflicting numbers and if so, you can re-use them this year, in which case you get a $15 credit towards your fee if you use the same jersey and $15 credit towards your fee if you use your same shorts ($30 total credit if both are being re-used).
