Any SYBA player looking to play a higher level of basketball has the opportunity to tryout for a
Smithfield Competitive Basketball Team.
--Teams are separated by school grade and will consist of approximately 8 to 12 players based on the coach’s discretion. Team members are selected by the coaches and there is no guarantee that each player that attends tryouts will make the team. A second team may be formed should there be enough players and coaches.
--You need to be a player in the Smithfield Youth Basketball Recreational Program to be eligible to play.
--Teams will compete in approximately 8 to 11 tournaments within the RI Youth Basketball Association throughout the season, (November – March) culminating in the State Championships the 2nd week in March. Tournaments are held in a different RI town each weekend
--Teams are guaranteed to play a least two games each tournament, and have the potential to play up to 5 games in a weekend should your team advance to the tournament’s final game.
--The cost to play on a team can be between $175 and $250 depending on the amount of tournaments a team participates in. The cost includes a team uniform. A weekend pass for adult admittance to each tournament is $5.00
--Teams will hold one 90 minute practice session per week - Wednesday nights @ either Gallagher Middle School or Old County Road Elementary School.
--All players need to attend at least one of the tryout sessions to be eligible to play however, it is highly encouraged that players attend both tryout sessions.
