In addition to our in-town recreation league, MYBA provides boys and girls in grades 4 to 8 the opportunity to participate in a local (Metrowest) competitive travel league.
The Medfield teams are chosen after competitive tryouts (process | schedule) are completed at each grade level. Players are evaluated on their individual and team basketball competency. Participation on these teams will require an extended commitment. It is expected that all team members be at all practices, games and tournaments. Please consider the increased time commitment for practice and games when deciding whether your child will try out for a travel team. MYBA understands that there may be conflicts due to vacation etc.
The season runs from the beginning of November to mid-March. In addition, boys and girls travel teams may participate in a pre-Thanksgiving and/or Thanksgiving weekend tournament. All teams will play in post-season playoffs that begin in early March. Teams may participate in additional tournaments that are typically held during vacation weeks (i.e. during December break or February vacation). There are regular season games on each Sunday of February break.
The following guidelines apply to all boys and girls travel teams:
The tryout schedule is posted on the web site under Travel Basketball.
