Try-Out Eligibility

1. Residency:

Your son or daughter must be a resident of Acton or Boxborough and/or be a full-time student at an Acton or Boxborough public school.

2. Age:

In general, players may have stayed back one year and started kindergarten a year “late” and still be eligible to play with their classmates. If your son or daughter is significantly older than his/her classmates, please contact us so we can verify league eligibility.

Players may NOT play up without permission from the Board of Directors. Meaning, if your child is a talented fifth grader, please do NOT sign up for sixth grade tryouts without first discussing this with A-B Travel Basketball. This is an Acton-Boxborough rule.

Players may not play DOWN under any circumstances per league rules. Meaning, a young sixth grader is never eligible to play for a fifth grade team. This is a CMYBL (league) rule.

3. Pre-Registration and Fee:

A completed registration form, payment of your non-refundable $30 registration fee. No family with an outstanding balance from last season may register for tryouts until that fee is rectified.

For players selected for a team, the balance of the cost for the season is due on or before November 1 (PayPal or Venmo only).

4. Try-Outs:

All potential players must try-out for a team. Playing on a travel team last season does not guarantee a slot again this year. Under appropriate circumstances, a player may be permitted to miss part or all of one try-out session assuming notification has been given ahead of time. In fairness to those who do try-out, without previous notification and a discussion with the Board of Directors, no potential player who misses attending a portion of or all of both try-out sessions may be considered for a team.
