YAC Girls Basketball travel teams are governed by the Tri-County Basketball League rules and regulations. Travel players must attend or be eligible to attend Yorktown Schools. Travel teams are offered to girls in the 5th through 8th grades. Each team is comprised of one grade only, unlike the In-House program. Prospective players attend tryout sessions and are assessed by a group of evaluators selected by the club. Teams practice twice per week beginning in October. League play typically begins in November and runs through mid-March.
The 5th grade team plays in one league and its players are required to participate in the In-House program. Travel players in the 6th ,7th and 8th grades typically play in two leagues and have the option to play on an in house team also. Travel players must decide prior to the In-House evaluation sessions whether or not they will be playing In-House. If so, they are expected to attend the evaluation session for draft placement purposes and make a commitment to attend their In-House team’s practices and games.
Travel players who participate in the In-House program pay a registration fee of $150 covering the costs of gym space, referees, insurance, team shirt and the annual awards ceremony. Travel players who elect not to play In-House pay a registration fee of $100 to cover the cost of gym space, insurance and the awards ceremony. Additional fees will be assessed per a budget for each travel team to cover the costs of league registrations, tournaments, uniforms, referees, etc.
