Traveling Tryouts

5th - 8th Grade Travel Basketball Registration Information

OMGBA has a Traveling League for 4th through 8th Grade. Traveling teams tend to pick up extra practice time when available, 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.**

**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 .**

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


2022 4th Grade Tryout Clinic at the MGCG!

OMGBA will be offering a tryout clinic for all 4th graders interested in learning and practicing in all the skills that will be evaluated on during this year's traveling tryouts.  

YOU MUST BE PARTICIPATING IN THE FALL SESSION TO ATTEND THE CLINICS   

Clinic Date:  Sunday December 4th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. There will be a parent meeting in the commons area at 6:00pm. The clinic will be held at the Maple Grove Community Gyms (MGCG) located behind MGMS.

2022-23 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.  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 2000 players in our House Program, which is an excellent program.

**A MANDATORY 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 at the tryout start time. Parent meeting will take about 20 minutes.** 

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