Congrats to our 6th grade and 8th grade boys Bobcat teams for qualifying for the state tournament.
- 4th - 8th Grade girls (separate team for each grade)
- 4th - 8th Grade boys (separate team for each grade)
* 3rd graders that play at an advanced skill level may tryout for the 4th grade teams
Travel candidates should demonstrate a good understanding of the game of basketball, are physically advanced to compete in a travel basketball atmosphere, have a desire to compete at an advanced level, have well developed basketball skills, have a positive attitude towards team development, are coachable and generally have the ability to be a positive influence to their team.
There will be a minimum of 6 home and 6 away games per team. It is expected that there will be a combination of 3 practices/games per week for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. Our 7th and 8th grade teams will have a reduced number of practices in order to complement the Middle School practice schedule.
Home games for the travel teams will be on Sundays. The travel team season will begin approximately October and end approximately February. Playoffs will begin the final week of February and can lead into early March.
The month of October will consist of optional practices, with the understanding that the children are often playing Fall sports, which take priority. During the month of November, practices will increase up to 2-3 times per week, with league games typically beginning in late December-early January.
The travel teams play in the Inter County Basketball Association (ICBA) league. http://www.icbabasketball.com/. Additional tournament opportunities may be offered.
What are the differences between Biddy and Travel programs?
The primary differences between Biddy and Travel are:
- Competition will be at a higher level
- Half of the games will be played away throughout Southeastern PA
- Games will have PIAA referees
Note: There is a misconception that if your child plays travel that they will be out every night. The travel teams do not practice more than the biddy teams, nor do they have more games.
Fee: $300. An additional $65 would be required for those needing a uniform.
Please do NOT pay until you know if your child has been chosen for the travel team. If your child is in 5th or 6th grade and not chosen for one of the travel teams, they will be placed on a Biddy team. If they don't want to play Biddy please let us know.
