Tryouts consist of three separate sessions. A player must attend all three sessions to be selected for a Travel team. Vacations, family commitments, or other sports activities are not reasons that will allow a player to miss a tryout session. Uncontrollable or unforeseeable family emergencies preventing attendance will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the Travel Director and the EPBBA Officers. These situations may also be handled under the injury and illness rules detailed below at the discretion of the EPBBA.
Tryouts will take place on Saturday, September 23, Sunday, September 24 and Sunday, October 1 at the EP High School Gym (EPHS). Players should report to EPHS at their designated check-in time. The specific tryout schedule for each grade is as follows:
