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 girls tryout is scheduled for October 18th. See below for the full (projected) tryout and practice schedule.

Who will coach the 7th-graders?

David Scagnelli, an experienced former high school coach who has coached in the Edgemont travel program for a number of years. Dave is an Edgemont resident and a teacher at Scarsdale High School.

Will there be basketball playing opportunities for girls who don’t make the travel team?

Yes. Assuming gym access and interest, we will offer open play and skills clinics for 7th-grade girls. EHS also has a school program (“modified”) for 7th- and 8th-grade girls.

How much will the team practice?

See below. The team will practice 2x/week for 60 mins each on a Monday/Wednesday schedule, dropping to 1x/week in December when daily modified practices begin.

Can my daughter 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 we get in the gyms before school starts?
