2022-2023 EARLY TRAVEL TRYOUTS
Due to the unknown nature of player turn-out, and the Board’s desire to determine at an early stage whether we can field a team for a specific grade or combo grade team, the below grades will have a mandatory try-out. Based on turn-out and the competitive level of players, we will determine shortly after the below try-out whether we can host a travel team for any of the below grades. It is possible we offer a combo team, where skilled younger players could play a grade up.
We are hosting these tryouts so we can give you an early response as to whether Upper Southampton can host a team for your child. If we cannot, the goal is that with early notice, your child will still have enough time to try out for another organization.
If your child’s grade is not listed below, it means we expect there to be a large turnout for the travel try-out for your grade and expect to field a team. Look for the specific try-out date for your grade to be posted in the near future. There will not be an 8th grade boys travel team.

*Southampton Travel teams compete in the ICBA and follow ICBA roster rules, limiting the amount of out of township players on each team. Out of township members are welcome to tryout, but selection on the team is based upon following those rules and guidelines
*Tryouts will be conducted by the teams head coach, board members and/or other talent evaluators. The rosters will be selected by evaluators.
*Roster size may vary team to team, but ultimately, you are looking at a minimum of 8 and maximum of 12 per team, with it most likely being around 10 players selected per team
