Frequently asked questions about tryouts
BOYS/GIRLS TRAVEL BASKETBALL PROGRAM
*Does my son or daughter have to be at both tryout days? No, however it is better for them if they can make both and increase their chances of being noticed.
*If my son or daughter makes one of the teams will it conflict with soccer, football, cheerleading etc? No, our policy is that the sports that are currently in season take priority. PAL basketball practice will start prior to Fall sports completion and players participating in a Fall sport are expected to come to practice only on their days off from that sport.
*What is the time commitment if my son or daughter makes one of the travel teams? Time commitments will vary depending on the age level.
*How many players will be on each team and will each player receive even playing time? Sparta PAL has a 10 player maximum per team, but there are exceptions to this rule. Each league has different rules regarding play time- generally the younger levels are equal for the first 3 quarters (5 players on, 5 players off) and coaches decision in the fourth. By eight grade it becomes coaches decision for all but the first quarter.
*How are the teams picked? Our tryout is both run by & evaluated by a panel of independent evaluators. At the tryout the kids are assigned a number (on their jersey), the evaluators are given an evaluation sheet with the jersey numbers on it (no names) to use for their evaluations. The teams are picked by the panel, 10 players on each team. We feel that this system gives equal opportunity for all. After the teams are picked coaches are assigned based on their qualifications & experience with youth sports.
