Antelopes News · Boys Basketball Tryouts

On Monday, November 30th we will hold a 1-day…7th-12th-grade tryout. This will replace the traditional 3-day tryout. 

  1. We will provide a high-quality evaluation and competition during the tryout. The number of coaches in the gym for that one day will help accurately grade each student-athlete. In contrast, with a 3-day tryout, we would typically have fewer coaches watching.
  2. The WPIAL requires us to hold a certain number of practices(5) before we are allowed to scrimmage or compete(15). So, we would like to get those official practices started ASAP.
  3. With Covid-19 restrictions, it is easier to do the tryout in one day. It will be with staggered starts for each grade level.
    1. Players will NOT be allowed in the gym until 10 minutes before the scheduled tryout time.
    2. All players must fill out the Covid-19 questionnaire, have a mask, and a personal water bottle before coming into the gym. ( Covid-19 Basketball Questionnaire )
  4. Observers will not be allowed in the gym.
