Why: The opportunity to practice with the best players in the area and play against some of the best competition on the east coast. This program may not be for every player. Our Backcourt Teams have the same great coaching and practice time at a less expensive cost. It offers fewer tournaments and less travel.
The tryout cost is $50.00 dollars. There will be three tryouts. You must make a minimum of two of those tryouts. If you don’t make the JB HOOPS team you can try out for free for the Backcourt Hoops Team.
YOU MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED 7 DAYS BEFORE TRYOUTS ARE SCHEDULED.
If you are not pre-registered you cannot try-out. No exceptions will be made.
If you make the team the cost will be $750.00 dollars. We understand that this a big expense but your son or daughter will receive the following.
- 13 Tournaments with a minimum of 40 games.
- 50 Hours of practice time
- A paid professional Coach
- A complete practice uniform
This year, we will be using a hotel service to secure hotel room blocks for all JB Hoops teams. To be eligible to play, you must use the room block that is designated. During larger tournaments, you will have several hotel options to choose from. The goal is to make the hotel reservation process easier for the JB Hoops families and to make your stay more enjoyable, while always keeping price, location and amenities in mind.
