Try-outs

Travel Team Evaluation Process 

Evaluations for all ERBYB travel teams will be conducted during two to four sessions depending on grade. All players are required to attend all sessions of the evaluations. If a valid medical reason exists that prevents a player from participation in evaluations, the coach must seek permission to have the player placed on any team. The request must be made in writing and must contain valid and reasonable reasons as to why the player should be placed on such team. This request will be reviewed by the Travel Director, President and one other ERBYB board member. This will count as a coach selection if granted.

Evaluations will consist of a variety of skill assessments and game like play. Evaluators will rank each player based on observations made during the tryout sessions. Individual rankings made by the evaluators will not be shared with the player or parent. Evaluation sessions are closed; parents and spectators will not be allowed into the gyms during evaluations. All player fees must be paid prior to evaluations.

Evaluators will be selected by the ERBYB Director of Player Development and will include independent evaluators.
Coaches for the ERBYB travel teams have been pre-selected and ranked in the event that the results of the evaluations dictate a change in pre-selected coaches.

Skills sessions are recommended, but not mandatory. 

Results of the evaluations will be posted on the ERBYB website on Sunday following the tryouts after 9pm.
