The Cranston Youth Girls Basketball Association Travel Team Tryouts will take place at the Pastore Youth Center, 155 Gansett Avenue, Cranston, RI during the week of October 22nd through October 26th.
So now you're asking, "What is Travel Basketball?"
The CYGBA Travel Program offers Cranston girls the opportunity to play against the best players and teams across the state of Rhode Island, through RIYBA. More importantly, the CYGBA travel program offers girls the opportunity to raise their level of development and love of the game.
The specific dates and times for each grade level are as follows:
  • 5th Grade Team Tryouts - Wednesday, October 24th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and Thursday, October 25th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
  • 6th Grade Team Tryouts - Monday, October 22nd from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and Friday, October 26th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
  • 7th Grade Team Tryouts - Tuesday, October 23rd from 7:30pm to 9:00pm and Friday, October 26th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm
  • 8th Grade Team Tryouts - Wednesday, October 24th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm and Thursday, October 25th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm
  • 3rd/4th Grade Team Tryouts - Monday, January 7th through Friday, January 11th. (These are later in the season because so many of the girls are new to basketball at this age).
    • Monday, January 7th from 7pm to 8:15pm
    • Wednesday, January 9th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
    • Friday, January 11th from 6:45pm to 7:45pm

(Players are strongly encouraged to attend each of their two grade level tryouts)

Once each team is selected, practices will held weekly; either once per week for the 4th grade team and twice per week for grades 5 through 8.

Tournament games are played on weekends and, occasionally, some Friday nights. Teams can have 2 to 4 games played in one tournament weekend. On average, you can expect to pay an admission to tournament games anywhere from $3 to $6 per game for each adult attending.  Some tournament hosts off a weekend pass.  These fees are how organizations raise money for their travel teams and programs.
The cost for each Travel Team covers practice time, equipment, a practice pinny, logo tee, most of our team tournament entry fees, team building events, insurance and a small portion of our league operating expenses.  Fees need to be paid once player has made a team.    All players would also need to purchase a uniform package which includes a practice pinnie, a travel team logo tee, a personalized shooting shirt, a personalized reversible game jersey and logo shorts.  The cost of the uniform package is $95 and is not included in the travel team fee.  Scholarships are not given to travel basketball players but we do offer a "Work For Fees" program.
The fees and number of tournaments played for each grade level are as follows:
  • 4th Grade -  $100 - 5 tournaments beginning in January and running through the 2nd week of March.
  • 5th & 6th Grade - $200 - 8 tournaments beginning in December and running through the 2nd week of March.
  • 7th Grade - $250 - 10 tournaments beginning in November and running through the 2nd week of March.
  • 8th Grade - $250 - All tournaments** beginning in November and running through the 2nd week of March.
