When will practices be held? The first practice will be held on Tuesday, November 2nd, from 10:00am – 11:15am, at House of Sports.
Subsequently, starting Wednesday, November 3rd, the 4th-grade boys will practice, at a minimum, from 6:15pm – 7:30pm every Wednesday at Greenville. We expect to add some additional practices and skills workouts soon thereafter.
Who will coach the team? Silvio DiSalvatore, an experienced high school and AAU coach, will be the head coach of the 4th-grade team.
Does my son need to attend both tryouts? No, only one is required, but we recommend attending both.
How many kids will make the team? We are anticipating a roster size of 10 to 12 players.
What league will the team compete in? The team will play in the Zero Gravity Winter League at House of Sports in Ardsley.
When will league play begin and end? The first game could be as early as November 20/21, but more likely will occur soon after Thanksgiving. The season runs to early March. Games will be on Saturdays or Sundays.
Will there be basketball playing opportunities for boys who don’t make the travel team? Yes. We are planning to offer recreational play options during the late fall and through the winter.
Will there be an Edgemont Rec season? It sounds like rec is happening and will start after Thanksgiving. If there is a rec season, travel and rec schedules will be coordinated to avoid conflicts. Our 4th-grade travel players are strongly encouraged to play rec.
How much will the travel season cost? I don’t expect it to be materially different from past years (i.e. somewhere around $650), but unfortunately I don’t yet have a precise number due to some unknown variables.
