The first session is for boys in the U15 age group (born 1999 or younger) and U16 age group (born 1998 or younger) interested in club basketball in the 2014 season.
The second session is for boys in the U17 age group (born 1997 or younger).
The third session is for boys in the U19 age group (born 1995 or younger).
During each session, there will be information for parents to expand upon the opportunity and goals of the Sudbury Youth Basketball Association club program and answer any questions.
After completion of a second session, commitments will be made for the formation of a competitive travelling team in each age group to compete in sanctioned Basketball Ontario tournaments and the provincial championships in May 2014. In some cases a third/fourth tryout may be necessary.
Interested players only require a positive attitude, strong work ethic and a willingness to learn.
Teams will practise two to three times a week and will play in several tournaments from March 2014 to May 2014 (Ontario Cup Provincial Championships).
