Calling All 3rd Graders

As the In-House season approaches an end, there is more basketball available to those who wish to continue playing. The spring traveling tournament season begins in mid-March. This is a great way for those players and families interested in moving to traveling basketball in 4th grade to gain exposure to the intensity and skill level necessary to compete. 

The CBA helps coordinate team formation, coaching and practice times. This season can be as long as the team chooses and the costs are paid by the individual teams on a tournament by tournament basis. For example, each tournament runs $240/team. There are also gate fees charged to fans that are $7-8 per day per person. 

Traveling tournaments is a very competitive basketball experience that helps prepare players that are interested in tryout for traveling basketball in 4th grade. Some player's skill level may not be appropriate for this level of competition at this time. The goal with spring traveling at this time is to compete at a higher level while still having fun. 

If this is of interest to you, please utilize the registration link at the bottom of the email. Each team will need at least one volunteer coach. Coaching interest can be expressed within the registration link. 

Registration must be completed by February 1st as practices will begin late February/early March. No late sign-ups will be accepted. 

If there are additional questions please contact:

Jeff Wyffels - CBA Boys Traveling Director,

Michele Matthews - CBA Girls Traveling Director,
