The Snowflake/Taylor Recreation and Parks Department will be conducting registration and tryouts for the 2014 basketball season on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Snowflake Junior High School Gym. The registration waiver form and $15 fee will be collected at the tryouts–please bring correct change.
The tryouts will be used to rank youth according to their ability for assignment on teams. All youth, including the coach’s son/daughter, must tryout for an accurate count to determine the number of teams needed. Youth who sign up, but who do not try out, will be assigned (in order) to teams instead of being drafted by coaches. There will be no exceptions to this. The number of youth who will be able to play depends on the number of coaches that volunteer. If you would like to coach, call Don Camacho at 536-710,3 ext. 225. All coaches are asked to come to the tryouts to help rank youth and to get an idea of the players that they would like to draft.
The registration and tryout schedule includes: 9 a.m., third and fourth grade girls (10 years old maximum); 10 a.m., third and fourth grade boys (10 years old maximum); 11:30 a.m., fifth and sixth grade girls (12 years old maximum); and 12:30 p.m., fifth and sixth grade boys (12 years old maximum). Youth who go beyond the age limit of each league have to play in the older division. Youth 13 years old will play in the Junior High Division. Registration for that division will start after the SJHS team has been selected.
Youth who absolutely are unable to tryout on Saturday will have one last chance on the following schedule: third and fourth grade boys and girls, 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the SJHS Gym; and fifth and sixth grade boys and girls, 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21. Youth who can’t be at either of the tryouts must be signed up by 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, at Snowflake Town Hall. These divisions play games on Saturdays, starting Jan. 11.
The seventh through ninth grade league will start after the SJHS teams are formed, with games slated between 6 and 9 p.m. during the week.
