TRYOUT INFORMATION

2021-2022 Season Tryouts

*Tryouts for the 2021-2022 season are complete.
We are excited to sponsor teams for 3rd grade girls, 5th grade girls, 6th grade boys, 6/7 grade girls, 8th grade girls and 8th grade boys.



Tryout Rules

*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

*Each team has a minimum of 2 tryout dates and we will do our best to stick to two nights only.  If a third night is needed, we do reserve the right to add a date

*Attendance at both tryout dates is highly recommended.  Attendance at a minimum of one of the tryouts is required for inclusion on the team

*Tryouts will be conducted by the teams head coach, but the rosters will be selected by evaluators.  All evaluators have a long history of coaching basketball and most are current high school coaches

*We ask that every player comes to tryouts with a shirt or jersey that has a number on the back

*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

General Information

Travel Basketball Philosophy

The Southampton Basketball Travel program is well suited for the players who seek to improve their skill sets while performing in a high level of competition.  Travel programs do just that - they travel to other townships who share in the excitement and challenge of competitive sports. 

In theory, there is a clear demarcation between purely recreational pursuits and competitive sports.   Travel programs are designed to place a greater emphasis on competition and achievement than an intramural (in-house) program.  Travel basketball teams works to attain success through rigorous practice and an increased competition schedule.  Typically, players and teams strive to increase their physical fitness, improve their basketball related skill-sets, and enhance their knowledge of the game while participating in a travel level program.   Competitive sport involves not only contests, but it also tends to advance as a central theme:  consistent progress and level advancement.  Additionally, there are higher expectations regarding both performance and commitment to the sport in the recreational sphere. 

We believe that youth sporting events, at all levels, should be a healthy, fun, and positive aspect of a young person’s life. Participation in sports should impart lifelong values, which are the behavioral foundation of our future generation.  Southampton Basketball takes pride in our players and in turn, we expect they take pride in representing their community and themselves.  Our goal, with the reliance on voluntary coaches,  is to teach strong moral values and outstanding character in both word and by example. We insist that no matter the ability, commitment, or competitive level of our travel teams or individual players,  we embody the philosophy of good sportsmanship.
