2021-22 GBA GIRLS Travel Basketball

Tryout Registration for the 2021-22 GIRLS Travel Division.  This program is open to all Girls in grades 5 - 8.  Girls living in Glastonbury & South Glastonbury are eligible.  Residency must be verifiable.  There is no initial registration fee. 

Travel fees TBD - approx. $275.  Financial aid is available.  Full payment or submission of financial aid form to the Town of Glastonbury is a condition of receiving a uniform and participating in team activities.   Answers to many questions can be found on the home page of the GBA website.

Tryouts include 2 sessions, and players are expected to attend BOTH.  In the rarest of cases, a player is unable to participate in both tryout sessions.  While it is possible to make a team in such cases, there is risk of the evaluators having insufficient time to evaluate the player.  If it's a close call between two candidates, the nod almost certainly goes to the player who has been on the floor for 2 sessions.
