Will there be a travel hoops season?
We hope so and are planning in anticipation of one. Please note, however, that all plans are subject to school district gym availability.
When will the season start?
The first 7th-grade boys tryout is scheduled for October 19th. See below for the full (projected) tryout and practice schedule.
Who will coach the 7th-graders?
Will there be A and B teams?
No. There will only be one Edgemont team for 7th-grade boys.
Will there be basketball playing opportunities for boys who don’t make the travel team?
Yes. Assuming gym access, we are planning 1) a recreational league for grades 7/8 that will run from mid-November through February; and 2) supervised gym time for semi-organized pickup games throughout the school year.
How much will the team practice?
See below. The team will practice 2x/week initially for 75 mins each on a Monday/Wednesday schedule, dropping to 1x in early December when daily modified practices begin.
Can my son play travel and modified?
Yes. Travel events will not conflict with modified events. However, both programs could have events on the same weekday/weeknight.
When does modified start?
It usually starts the Monday before or the Monday after Thanksgiving.
Can my son play travel and fall/winter AAU?
Yes, provided that travel is prioritized in the event of a conflict
Can we get in the gyms before school starts?
Edgemont Hoops is not planning to request summer gym access.
Can we get in the gyms before the mid-October travel tryouts?
We’re hoping we can gain access beginning the week of September 20 for possible open gym / pre-season skills sessions.
