Wilmington Travel Basketball To Hold Tryouts At Yentile During Weeks Of September 28 & October 5

Below is a message from Wilmington Travel Basketball:

Dear WTB Families,

Wilmington Travel Basketball will hold tryouts for the 2020-2021 season beginning the week of September 28. Players in grades 4 through 8 are invited to attend.

We are grateful to the Town for approving our request to hold tryouts this Fall and for the use of the outdoor courts at Yentile Recreation Facility located at 9 Cross Street in Wilmington.

Important Information for All Participating Families:

To ensure the safety of our players and coaches, tryout registration will be online ONLY. Players must register online to participate. No walk-ins will be permitted.  Please use link below: https://wilmingtonbbreg.sportngin.com/register/form/099413133

Registration will take place between Monday, September 21st and Friday, September 25th. This is a hard deadline as walk-ins are not permitted, so please register as soon as it opens.

Parents/guardians will be asked to complete a COVID-19 participation waiver as part of the online registration process.

Tryouts are FREE. There is no cost to participate in tryouts this season.

Tryouts will be held in two parts; Session 1 (non-contact) and Session 2 (game play). Players will be evaluated on both individual skills and game play.

In compliance with EEA, Session 1(non-contact – skills and drills) will run the weeks of September 28 and October 5.

Please see schedule below.

Players must bring their own basketball and water bottles. While masks are not required for players during the tryout, players and any adults dropping off players must wear masks to and from the court. Each participating player will be assigned a numbered sticker for the tryout, and a parent/guardian will be asked to place the sticker on the participating player’s jersey. There will be a 15-min period between grades to allow for players to enter/leave the courts safely, and with limited interaction.

WTB President, Joe Maiella, will be present at all tryouts to discuss the evaluation process, the 2020-2021 season and any other inquiries.

Please note: Any parent/guardian concerned about their child participating in tryouts due to COVID-19 concerns, should email josephmaiella@gmail.com.

We look forward to Session 1, and when more information from the State becomes available, we will share dates, logistics and location for Session 2. 

Let’s do this!

The WTB Board of Directors
