We sponsor four teams (Boys and Girls Varsity & JV) in the Mid-Maryland Youth Basketball League.  These are competitive teams and are selected by tryouts only.

There is an additional fee that must be paid upon selection to a travel team.  Total fee for Travel team is $215.00 ($125.00 at registration, $85 payable after selection to the team).

The same academic eligibility requirements that must be met at the high school level also apply to travel teams.  There is no guarantee of playing time for those selected for travel teams. 

Intramural Team Information

Intramural teams are grouped by grade (3rd/4th, 5th/6th, 7th/8th, 9th/10th, 11th/12th) for both girls and boys. 

Practices for all Intramural and Travel teams will begin in November.  Regular season games will begin in December. 

If sponsored by BCWB organization all 11th/12th grade boys teams will be formed through GVAA and participate with the BCWB league.  All registrations will be sent to BCWB directly by the GVAA as a team is formed and GVAA coach is appointed.  Registration fees will remain the same for this age group as insurance, uniform, and practice time will be handled by GVAA basketball.
