Westborough Youth Basketball Association (WYBA)
2019-20 Travel Basketball Tryouts
Boys and Girls Grades 4-8
Tryouts for the upcoming Travel Basketball season are scheduled for Saturday September 28 and Sunday October 6. Tryout times will be announced once we know about fall sports schedules so that we can minimize conflicts.
All Westborough girls and boys entering grades 4-8 are eligible to tryout. While not mandatory, it is strongly recommended that players attend both tryouts. The tryout and team selection process is outlined in our WYBA League Bylaws.
For those new to the program, Travel basketball is a separate program from Westborough Rec Basketball, and we encourage players to play both. Travel basketball affords players the opportunity to participate in a more competitive environment. Westborough teams are part of the Metrowest Basketball League along with hundreds of other teams from nearby towns. Metrowest teams are usually within a 1 hour drive from Westborough and the league offers 5 divisions that allow WYBA to place each of our teams in a division with appropriate competition.
Practices start in late October/early November, games start the first week of December and are usually on Sundays (varying times) until early March. There are games on Super Bowl Sunday and both weekends of February vacation. The season concludes with playoffs in early March, when a boys and girls champion for each division is crowned.
WYBA is a non-profit (501c3) organization and all fees are used to provide a competitive basketball experience for our players. The cost of the program – which covers gym fees, referees, uniforms, equipment, insurance & tournaments – has historically ranged from $300 to $500 per player. There is a fee of $20 to participate in the tryout sessions if you register prior to the tryout session, otherwise a fee of $25 will be charged the day of. Please register online prior to the tryout sessions to reserve your spot. Financial assistance is available for families in need by sending a confidential email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your interest in the Westborough Travel Basketball Program and best of luck at tryouts this fall!
