Travel Tryouts - General Information

Tryout Sessions 

In order to minimize the number of people in the building, we will not allow parents or siblings in the gym or hallways during the tryouts. The only exception to this is that there will be short Parent/Player Expectation Meeting conducted by the Travel Coordinators during the first 15 minutes of the initial tryout for each grade level. Parents for all participants must plan on attending this meeting to gain an understanding of what the commitment and behavioral expectations are for both the players and parents of those selected to represent Loveland in CPYBL.

Please plan on dropping your player off no more than 15 minutes prior to their tryout time. You may escort your player back to the gym, leave the building during tryouts, then return and meet your player in the hallway when it is over.

Tryouts will be broken out into two parts :

Drills: Selected drills during tryouts will allow for concentrated display of ability in all areas of basketball. A variety of drills will keep players interested in seeking perfection, preventing boredom and complacency. This will give evaluators the opportunity to see all aspects of the player’s ability. Drills will cover both offensive and defensive skill areas. Every drill will give the player the ability to display his/her skills for game situations.

Controlled Scrimmages: During controlled scrimmages participants will be broken up and selected by the organizer of the try-outs at random. Skills will continue to be assessed by each evaluator during a set amount of time.

Selecting and Evaluating Players

Tryout evaluations will be conducted by three or four evaluators. These evaluators have been selected by the LYBA board. Each evaluator will have an evaluation sheet that will score players abilities in designated areas. Evaluators are not allowed to evaluate their own child. At the end of the tryout period each evaluator will recommend up to 25 players based on their assessment of each player over their try out days.

The top 16-20 players will be placed on two teams. A third team of 8-10 players may be added based on the discretion of the evaluators, based on talent level, and as approved by the board. Factors that will be considered regarding team development include: the talent level of the prospective players, available gym space for practicing, and available coaches. If a player decides not to commit to the Travel Team for which they are selected, the next highest rated player will be offered a spot on the team.

The number of days required for a participant to attend

Registrants are only required to attend one of the two days designated for their age group/gender for try outs. However, it is highly recommended that they attend both days if possible, so they can be evaluated effectively. If your child is not able to attend both days, please notify the evaluators at check-in so that they will know to fully evaluate your child on that night.
