Travel Basketball

Tryout Schedule  Registration/Fee

HYAA offers competitive travel basketball programs during the winter season for both boys (grades 4-8) and girls (grades 4-8). 

All players who participate on a travel team MUST also register, pay and participate in the in-town recreational league. All players wishing to tryout for Travel, must be registered for in-town Basketball to be eligible to tryout. Unregistered players will not be permitted to tryout. Travel teams are selected following tryouts.
Travel Basketball Tryouts
The purpose of the tryouts is to select two teams per grade to compete against other South Shore towns. Travel basketball requires substantial commitment and these are competitive teams. Teams will play approximately 15-30 games and have two practices per week starting in October and up through the end of March. In addition to the regular season games, teams do play in various tournaments, which usually are during school vacation weeks.
Tryout format
A three judge board comprised of independent coaches will be at the tryout to evaluate each respective group. No parents are allowed in the gym while the tryout is taking place. 2 teams will be selected for each grade group. Team roster size will be determined on a team-by-team basis. Team rosters will be posted on this HYAA website, under "Travel Basketball" on the Saturday following tryouts at noontime.
Travel fee estimate
Fees do not include tournament or uniform costs $200-$250 for all players (final amount TBD)

Tryouts Schedule


Tryouts are typically held in October. Schedule will be posted and announced once it is finalized. There is generally 1 tryout per age group due to limited gym time and the number of teams we are selecting. It is important that you make your assigned time.

All players wishing to tryout for Travel, must be registered for in-town Basketball to be eligible to tryout. 

Travel basketball is competitive by nature. Given limited resources, we cannot accommodate all players interested. There will more than likely be cuts at each grade level. Please discuss this with your son/daughter before they tryout. Please keep in mind that a separate registration fee of approximately $200 to $250 is required from those who participate in the travel program.

Team rosters will be posted on this website. Players will be given an expected timeline for posting at tryouts.


All Travel candidates must be registered for In Town Basketball before trying out. If you make a team you are expected to participate actively on both teams.
Players who are placed on Travel Teams will receive a link to register and pay the additional fees. This must be completed by the deadline or your child will be ineligible to play.
Travel fee estimate (fees do not include tournament costs) $200-$250 for all players (final amount TBD) plus the cost of uniforms.
