Traveling Tryouts

5th - 8th Grade Travel Basketball Registration Information

OMGBA has a Traveling League for 4th through 8th Grade. Traveling teams tend to practice more, play more games (weekend tournaments), and play a higher level of competition. If your son or daughter is interested in traveling, register them for the proper House League and when the online registration asks about traveling, answer "yes". Your initial fee will cover the tryout.

**If your son/daughter makes a travel team, you will need to pay an additional fee for tournaments and volunteer at our home tournament.**

**If your son/daughter makes a travel team and decides not to play, there will be NO refund and that player will not be able to participate in OMGBA for the current and following year.**

**A PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST ATTEND PARENT MEETING.  A Parent meeting for each grade level will take place on the first day of that grade level tryout. Parent meeting will take 15 minutes.** 

**OMGBA uses the DIBS Volunteer System for volunteer requirements for 5th - 8th Grade Traveling basketball families. ALL FAMILIES ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN UP. For more information see the "Volunteer Info" tab .**

**See below for tryout clinics and actual tryout schedule.  YOU MUST BE REGISTERED FOR THE SEASON TO PARTICIPATE IN THE TRYOUT CLINICS.**


2019 Tryout Clinic Information

We will be having tryout clinics again this year.  At these clinics, the players will have an opportunity to practice all the tryout drills and do some scrimmaging prior the actual tryout.  YOU MUST BE REGISTERED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CLINICS.

5th-8th Grade Traveling Team Tryout Guidelines

Check out our Traveling Team Guidelines. Our process of picking players is more transparent than ever. If you have further questions regarding this program please contact the President or the Traveling Commissioner on the contacts page. While every effort is taken to ensure correctness, this is subject to change without notice.


2019-20 Traveling Tryout Dates and Times

Those selected for a travel team will pay an additional fee to cover the tournament entry costs. Once assigned to a travel team, you must play on that team or forfeit all initial fees paid.  For more information, see above for the various house leagues and below for the various traveling leagues and tryout dates. If your child does not make a traveling team, they will already be signed up for the House League.  OMGBA only has places for about 300 players in traveling but has about 1700 players in our House Program, which is an excellent program.

Boys and Girls Traveling Pictures will be taken Saturday of their home tournament at MGMS between 8am & 6pm in the cafeteria.  Time determined by coach.

All tryouts will be held at the Maple Grove Community Gym behind Maple Grove Middle School.

Travel Tryout Results for 2019/20 Season 4th - 8th Grade

Upon completion of each tryout, the coach will email the results to the Traveling Commissioner, who will review them to ensure OMGBA's selection processes were followed and will post them here.  Our goal is to complete this process within 24 hours of the completion of tryouts, but please allow up to 48 hours before inquiring.

If your tryout number and initials do not appear under one of the traveling teams, we would invite you to play in our house league program.  Please go to the Program Dates tab in the left column for important information regarding that program.
