Travel General Info

Any player registered for the PYB house league may try out for a PYB travel team. To be eligible for PYB Travel you must be registered for the PYB house league and be a Portsmouth or Little Compton resident. The fee to participate in PYB Travel is $200.

For the 2015-2016 season, travel teams will be offered for the following grades: 4th-8th. Please note, if there are not enough players to complete a team roster or there is not a volunteer coach for a travel team, the PYB board will make a final decision on if PYB will sponsor a team within that division.

All players interested in playing PYB travel, must participate in a separate travel team tryout. Independent evaluators will rank each player as they participate in basketball skills, drills and scrimmage play. Additional information including past PYB evaluations and coaches evaluations will also be used in the selection process. The tryout will last for one hour and be held at Portsmouth High School.

PYB Travel Team Try-Outs: TBA
