Boys in Grades 4 through 8 are eligible to participate in travel basketball. Each grade will have two mandatory tryouts. The tryouts are cumulative. Each candidate needs to attend both tryouts. Please arrive 15 minutes early to each tryout wearing a reversible basketball jersey. All candidates that try out will notmake a team as rosters and teams are limited. Each team will be limited to approximately 12 boys. There will be at least one team for Grade 4 and two teams each for Grades 5 through 8. Additional teams for each grade could be added but they are not yet guaranteed. There is no cost to try out but the cost for those that make a team will be approximately $250. In addition, individuals that play travel basketball are also required to play in the Barker Basketball Town League.
