Tryout Change in Location - 7th and 8th Boys

Parents of 7th and 8th Grade Boys Participating in Tryouts,

Tryouts for Madison Youth Travel Teams begin next week.  In order to accommodate some of the older teams with more gym space, we have reserved the high school main gym on select nights.  Thus, we have made two changes to locations only as follows:

  • 8th grade boys on Tuesday, Oct 17th from 7:45pm to 9:15pm will be at Madison High School Main Gym, not Madison Junior School
  • 7th grade boys on Friday, October 20th from 7:45pm to 9:15pm will be at Madison High School Main Gym, not Madison Junior School


Other tryout dates and locations remain the same.

If your kid is going to attend tryouts, he/she needs to be registered.  Please ensure you are registered at the MBA website .

Travel Tryout Schedule - 2017/18 (REVISED)


To All Parents of Kids in Grades 4 through 8 interested in trying out for Madison travel basketball teams,

Again, please ensure you register for the 2017/18 season.  Once tryouts begin, future emails will be sent only to those who have registered for the 2017/18 season.

As for the Travel Basketball Season, it is an important aspect of our program.  These teams are for players who have begun to develop a skill level necessary for this type of competition.   Our teams will be competing in the Jersey Basketball Association.  Game play begins in early December and will include travel to nearby, and unfortunately some not so nearby, towns.  Travel participants should be able to commit to practices and games several days each week throughout the season.  

All kids interested in trying out shall be registered in the program prior to their first scheduled tryout date and pay the initial registration fee.  If your child does not make a travel team and then decides not to play in the recreation program, your registration fee will be refunded.  Those who make a travel team will owe an additional $100 to be paid prior to the start of the season. This is consistent with prior years.  If you have an outstanding balance from prior years, please ensure it is paid so that your child will be eligible for this year’s tryouts.

As of now, we have scheduled 3 tryouts for every grade/gender.  All parents will be asked to leave the gym during the tryouts.  Tryouts will be run by volunteers, and the players will be independently evaluated by others for purposes of selecting the teams.  Kids are expected to attend all of their tryouts but are urged to attend at least 2 of the scheduled tryout slots (we understand you will have conflicts with other sports, etc.).  If your child cannot make their first scheduled tryout, please let us know by replying to this email.

Be at your tryout 10 minutes prior to the start for handout of tryout pinnies. Travel tryout schedule is below. If difficulty reading in email, please look at on our website at
