TRAVEL PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

AHYBA sponsors a travel basketball program for 3rd, 4th, 5th grade boys.

You must be a current participant in AHYBA and reside in Arlington Heights or in a community that does not have a team playing in the North Suburban Basketball League at that grade level.  

If players do not live in Arlington Heights they may be able to play if their town does not have a travel team playing in the  NSBL. Unincorporated areas may meet residency requirements. Players must only participate with their respective grade (NO PLAYING UP).

Travel Program Philosophy
To provide an opportunity for kids to participate in an advanced program of basketball with primary emphasis on skill development, team play, sportsmanship and community representation.

3rd Grade Program-Boys

10 boys selected for a single team which will play in the NSBL from January-March.

4th Grade Program - Boys

20 boys selected who will be divided into two teams (one "A" and one "B").

Starting the first week of January, teams will participate in the “North Suburban Basketball League” with games on Saturdays and Sundays. Each team will participate in a minimum of 2 local tournaments. Teams will play approximately 20-25 games throughout the travel season.

5th Grade Program - Boys
20 boys selected who will be divided into one "A" team and one B"team.


Starting the first week of January, teams will participate in the “North Suburban Basketball League” with games on Saturdays and Sundays. Each team will participate in a minimum of 2 local tournaments. Teams will play approximately 20-25 games throughout the travel season.

 


Playing Time
Unlike most travel teams, our coaches are all instructed to strive to try and equalize playing time among all of the participants. We have implemented a “general” guideline that all players should play no less than 1/3 of any game, unless physical or disciplinary issues apply.

Cost
The estimated cost for the 2017 season will be  approximately $500.00 and will be payable immediately upon being selected for the team. If additional costs are incurred we may request additional monies for each of the participants.

Commitment
The teams will be selected, and will begin practicing, while the AHYBA “house” programs are still in session. It is anticipated that there will be some conflicts. The AHYBA “house” program always takes priority over the “travel” program. Participants that are unable to make a number of practices over the holiday break due to vacations are not automatically excluded from participation in the program. Should this problem exist, please address it to one of the travel directors during the tryout process.

Players selected to participate will not be allowed to participate in any other travel level basketball programs during this season (this includes feeder programs). This policy has been established recognizing that participation in this program requires a significant time commitment from the players and their families, and participation in another program, at the same time, would, most likely, be detrimental to both programs. We do understand that some of the participants may be involved with other sporting activities during our season (ie., travel soccer). We will not attempt to restrict involvement in those activities but would expect that priority be given to basketball during the basketball season. Players who tryout for other basketball programs, after being selected to participate in our program, will be removed from their respective teams unless the tryout is approved by the travel director.
