4th Grade Travel FAQ
What happens during tryouts?
 
A non-parent evaluator takes the kids through a quasi-practice session.  While we certainly make note of basketball ability, we are more interested in general athleticism and listening skills.  Our job is to show the kids how to play the right way, so "teachability" is the key!
 
Could my child get cut?
 
There will be no cuts in 4th grade.
 
What is the time commitment?
 
Practices start in November and will be every Wednesday and Friday.  Wednesday is a combined practice run by a professional coach from 5:20 - 6:50.  Friday practice will be run by a dedicated parent volunteer coach from 4:30 - 6 or 6 - 7:30, depending on the team.  Games begin in December, and we play 1-2 per weekend (Saturday morning in Weston and sometimes another game elsewhere in Fairfield County) until early March.
 
What if we go skiing or swim?
 
Missing 1 or 2 weekends due to ski trips (or swim meets) is fine, as long as you let the team's coaches know in advance.
 
What about playing time?
 
We aim for there to be, over the course of the season, equal playing time for all kids in 4th grade.
 
What about Parks & Rec?
 
The 4th grade Rec program is essentially the same as the 3rd grade program.  There is a 1 hour session on Saturdays starting in December with an emphasis on skill development.  Versus 3 hours of weekly travel practice and approximately 20 travel games, there is no question that travel is the better option for those that want to actually play the game of basketball.
 
How much will it cost?
 
The program fee is $459 for about 80 hours of practices and games.  In addition, uniforms cost about $70 and are reusable from year to year (as long as they fit).  Beyond that, some comfy sneakers and a 28.5" basketball are all you need.

Weston Basketball Association

The Weston Basketball Association is a volunteer run non-profit organization established to promote the sport of Basketball within the town of Weston, CT as a positive component in the educational and athletic development of Weston's young student athletes.  The WBA's primary responsibility will be to administer, coordinate, and organize Weston's Travel Basketball Teams for grade 4-8 boys and girls. Our teams currently participate in the Fairfield County Basketball Leage (www.fcblhoops.org).  WBA offers clinics and camps throughout the year for grades 1-8 to encourage the development of Weston's young basketball players.  We also collaborate with the Town of Weston Parks and Recreation (www.westonct.gov) which runs the basketball recreation program for Weston children in grades K-8.
