GCAA announces tryouts for the Travel Basketball Season

GCAA will be hosting tryouts for Travel Basketball during the weeks of September 25th, October 2nd, and October 9th. The teams will play in the highly competitive Island Garden Super League. In order to be eligible for tryouts, all players must pre-register for the tryout via email to gliberopoulos@yahoo.com and bring a check for $415 payable to “GCAA” to the tryout (along with a completed travel basketball application which can be downloaded from the gc-aa.com website.) Please note there is an additional charge of $50 for all players that require a new uniform (ALL 3rd grade boys will need a new uniform this year.)

The Island Garden Super League season includes an 18 game schedule (plus playoffs) starting in late November 2017 and running thru March 2018. Travel Teams will also practice 1-2 times per week. Please note that the travel program is not an introductory program as our teams will play against the best basketball teams in our region. GCAA Travel does its best to work around Middle School/CYO conflicts during the basketball season and ensures that there are no scheduling conflicts between travel/intramural games. GCAA aims to create two or three teams per grade subject to adequate demand and available coaching. For girls in 4th - 8th grades, we will consider starting the travel season in January 2018 in order to avoid CYO conflicts if there is an interest in doing so.

The $415 Travel Fee due at the time of tryouts includes participation in the GCAA intramural program. Boys 6th grade and under and girls 5th grade and under are required to play intramurals if they make a travel team. Boys 7th grade and older and girls 6th grade and older are strongly encouraged to participate in the intramural program although there is no requirement to do so, even if they make a travel team.

Please pre register for travel tryouts by sending an email to gliberopoulos@yahoo.com and include age/grade/ birth date of the player when you send the email:
