2021-2022 Open Gym & Tryout Schedule
by posted 09/20/2021


Dear Burlington Families,

 

Thank you for your patience as you anticipate upcoming Open Gym times and Tryouts for travel basketball teams.  Open Gym times are optional and will take place at the Mount Hope School Gym off of Lexington Street at 3 McGinnis Drive in Burlington. Tryouts are required to be considered for placement on a travel team and will be located at Marshall Simonds Middle School at 114 Winn Street in Burlington.

 

Both of these BYBA activities will be held under the supervision of BYBA Board members and past BYBA coaches.  Families are expected to drop off and pick up on time to avoid overlapping participants.  Anyone entering the gym is required to follow the guidelines in place at the Burlington Public Schools, including face coverings, proper hygiene, and social distancing. 

 

Anyone who is under quarantine or exhibiting symptoms of illness is prohibited from entering.  Please contact the BYBA to make alternative arrangements to ensure that these individuals will have an opportunity to try out.

 

We thank you for your loyalty to the BYBA program and wish everyone good luck!

 

Sincerely, 

 

The BYBA Board

Dear Burlington Families, 

 

We hope you all have had a successful start to the school year and all are staying healthy.  As you begin to make plans for upcoming fall and winter activities, we'd like to share that the BYBA is going forward with planning a travel basketball season again this year for 2021-2022. While specific details are still emerging based on available gym space, interest, and health/safety regulations, we would like to begin the process with tryout registration.  

 

Registration for tryouts will be opening online September 6, 2021.  These evaluations will take place at the Mount Hope School's Gym between 9/20- 10/5.  Specific group times will become available and shared with those who have registered online. They will be largely based on the ages and sizes of groups registered at each grade level.  This year, tryouts have a fee of $10 per player to cover the cost of the rented gym space and sanitation. 

 

Keeping safety in mind, we are asking families to comply with some guidelines.  In an effort to discourage people from congregating in close proximity, we ask that families not stay during the tryouts, but a BYBA representative will share some information about the evaluation and team selection process during drop-off/pick-up.  All participants are expected to be properly masked at all times.  There will be opportunities for a monitored mask/water break during the tryout.  Participants will be asked to sanitize as they enter the tryout session.  If after you register, you are unable to attend due to quarantine or illness, notify the BYBA Board and accommodations will be made to ensure all interested players are given the opportunity to try out. Students with symptoms or under quarantine will not be permitted.

 

Please go to www.Burlingtonyouthbasketball.org to register for tryouts 2021-2022

We wish you all the best of luck during tryouts.  Just a reminder that not all participants who try out are guaranteed a roster spot on a travel team, but all are encouraged to try!  We look forward to seeing you there!

The Burlington Youth Basketball Association is a nonprofit based in Burlington, MA.  We are a volunteer run organization dedicated to serving the youth of our town as they learn the rules and develop skills in the sport of basketball.  Our primary focus is on travel basketball for athletes in grades 4-8, but we work closely with the Burlington Recreation Department to develop programming for younger kids, too. 

 

Registration has not yet started for tryouts for the 2021-2022 season, but more information should be available in early September.  We hope you will join us this season!
