For those interested in trying out for the Jackson youth travel basketball teams tryout details are listed below.  All travel players must also play in the in-house recreation league and attend those evaluations, in addition to trying out for the travel teams.

In house player evaluations will be for 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades this year.  Travel tryouts will be held for Grades 3 - 6.  See the link below for dates, times & locations of evaluations and travel tryouts.

Please Note:  We do not know when or where practices/games will be held at this point.  We are at the mercy of the schools for when we get blocks of times in the gyms.  With Varsity, JV, Freshmen, and multiple teams in 7th & 8th grades, for both boys and girls, those practices and game times are difficult to schedule.  Once the official school sanction teams have their schedules in place, JYBA, the girls basketball organization, and all other groups who enjoy the use of our school gyms, can then work together to schedule the remaining gym time.  We'll do our best to notify parents once the schedules have been set.
