Travel Basketball Tryouts
Travel Tryouts for the 2021-2022 Winter season will be held during the beginning of October. Tryouts will be held indoors. Although players are not required to wear masks when active on the court, they will be required to wear masks at all other times. This includes entering the gym, exiting the gym and while taking a break.
NOTE: EVERY PLAYER MUST BE REGISTERED PRIOR TO ATTENDING TRYOUTS!!!
Who is Eligible to Try Out?
Each winter season, LMVSC sponsors boys and girls teams to participate in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL). FCYBL runs boys divisions and girls divisions for grade-based teams.
Players can try out for multiple teams within LMVSC, however they are only eligible to play on teams that correspond to their grade or higher. For example, 5th and 6th grade boys can try out for the 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams. 7th grade boys can try out for the 7th and 8th grade boys teams. 8th graders can try out only for 8th grade teams.
If your player makes a team, you will be required to provide a copy of your player’s report card from an approved public or private school. Players enrolled in FCPS can instead provide a copy of the player’s SIS page. Special verification requirements apply to home-schooled players.
- No player on any 5th grade team can be 12 years old on September 1st of that year.
- No player on any 6th grade team can be 13 years old on September 1st of that year.
- No player on any 7th grade team can be 14 years old on September 1st of that year.
- No player on any 8th grade team can be 15 years old on September 1st of that year.
