Smithfield Competitive Travel Teams
Any SYBA player looking to play in a higher level basketball league has the opportunity to tryout for a Smithfield Travel Team.
--The teams are separated by school grade and will consist of approximately 8-12 players based on the coach’s discretion. Team members are selected by the coaches and there is no guarantee that each player that tryouts makes the team. A second team may be formed should there be enough players and coaches.
