Announcing Hingham Girls Travel Basketball Tryouts for Hingham Residents!
DATES: Sunday October 6, 2019 AND Wednesday October 16, 2019
Please save the dates for Hingham Girls Travel Basketball tryouts for grades 5th-8th. There will be two days of tryouts. Grade specific tryout times will be announced shortly. Prospective players (Hingham Residents) should plan to attend both days of tryouts. The link to register for the tryout is below.
Tryouts for 4th grade travel basketball will be held at a later date. However, all interested 4th graders should register for the tryout now. More information regarding 4th grade travel basketball will be forthcoming.
There will be two travel teams in each grade for grades 5th through 8th. We will field one team in the South Shore Girls Basketball League and one team in the Old Colony Girls Basketball League. IF FEASIBLE, we MAY field a third team in the Starland Winter Basketball League in Hanover. Roster spots will be limited and we may not be able to accommodate all who wish to play travel basketball. However, we invite and strongly encourage anyone who is not selected for a travel team to participate in our in-town program (GALs). Registration for in-town GALs will open shortly.
Each travel team will practice two nights per week, starting in November, and will have one or two games (usually two) each weekend starting in December. Games are on Saturdays and Sundays. The season ends in March.
Travel basketball is intended for girls who are committed to further developing their skills in a competitive and team centered environment. To participate in our travel basketball program, players MUST commit to attending every practice and every game, except when they are sick or have a required school or religious function. Your travel basketball team must take precedence over any other athletic activity. Players who cannot abide by this commitment should not try out for travel basketball. Those who desire or need a less demanding or more flexible commitment are encouraged to play in our in-town program (GALs), which meets every Sunday, starting in December, for a practice followed by a game. Older grades in the GALs program also may have an optional weeknight practice.
