Tryouts for Boys Travel Basketball will be held on Saturday, October1st, at the Cambridge-Isanti High School Gym. Travel basketball is a competitive basketball program sponsored by the Jacket Hoop Boosters. Teams play 20-30 games by participating in weekend tournaments held in Cambridge-Isanti, in the Great Northwest League (Eastern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin), and in the Twin Cities metro area. Practices (1-2 per week) are generally held on weekday evenings. A fee will need to be paid in order to participate.
For the 2011-2012 season, the Jacket Hoop Boosters will sponso combined teams in the 3rd – 4th grade, and also teams in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. There may be multiple teams at each grade level, but this is determined by how many coaches we have at each age level. The maximum number of players for each team will be limited to approximately 8-10 players to maximize individual participation.
Listed are the times for the tryout for these teams:
4th, 5th, and 6th Grade Teams 3:30 P.M. – 5:30 P.M.
7th and 8th Grade Teams 1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.
