Travel Team Information 

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.

Travel Team tryouts for both boys and girls will be held beginning Monday, October 14 through Thursday, October 17, and practice will begin shortly after that.  Regular season games will begin the last weekend in November and run until the end of March.

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. We will also hold tryouts for Intramural Division 1 teams for 5th/6th & 7th/8th boys only. 

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

Beginning this season, 11th/12th grade boys teams will be formed through GVAA and participate with the BCWB organization.  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. When registering, please indicate any coach or other player preferences you may have as we will use that to help form the teams. 

Anyone interested in coaching (Head Coach or Assistant Coach) an Intramural team please indicate such on the registration or contact Troy Bolyard at [email protected] and Kirsten Brown at [email protected] 

We rely on parents to participate to make our basketball program successful.

The fee for all intramural age groups is $125 which includes team jersey.
