_____________________________

 

As shown above, there are two different segments for Tryouts: Varsity and Sub-Varsity. From the Sub-Varsity sessions, a 9th Grade and Junior Varsity team will be selected. There are multi-stage evolutions with our Tryouts; as an expansive list of broad qualities are important to the makeup of our teams (not just “good shooters”, “good dribblers”, etc.) We are interested in considering AS MANY GIRLS AS WE CAN to be part of our program!!

 

All stages of the evaluations will take place over 3 or 4 days of Tryout Week, as explained below:

Nov. 6  ..  Varsity  ..  TEAM SKILLS STAGE
Nov. 6  ..  9th & JV ..  INDIVIDUAL SKILLS STAGE
Nov. 7  ..  Varsity ..  INTEGRATION STAGE
Nov. 7  ..  9th & JV  ..  TEAM SKILLS STAGE
Nov. 8  ..  Varsity  ..  EXECUTION STAGE
Nov. 8  ..  9th & JV ..  INTEGRATION STAGE
Nov. 9  ..  Varsity  ..  COMPETITION STAGE
Nov. 9  ..  9th & JV ..  INTEGRATION/EXECUTION

 

ALL players must attend the days/times posted to be considered for our teams. Nov. 6 will find players participating in skill work of varying drill format. Performance in those areas into/through the Integration Stages in the days that follow, will aid the staff in separating girls with 9th or JV; and JV or Varsity potential. Once we get to the slate of activities on Nov. 9: we expect to form all rosters, based on squad-specific components. After we have evaluated all athletes, we will announce cuts. Each player will be informed in a private and discrete manner, what her status is.

Coach Jones observes or conducts all the Tryout Week activities. Input from every staff coach, is part of the evaluations. That said: roster decisions are made by each team’s coach, and will be final.

 

PARENT-PLAYER TIP-OFF MEETING
Nov. 11, 2017: 11:15am-12:00pm; For those selected to the team — Parents/Players are asked to attend, as we present our plans to make this a great season. Parents are also welcome to watch any portion of any team practices on that day as well.

 

If you have any questions about the 2017-2018 Girls Basketball Season, or Tryouts; please do not hesitate to contact Coach Jones:  jonesw@trentonschools.com
