ABOUT EGBA TRAVEL
Travel A Teams practice 1-2 times per week and participate in the RIYBA league and tournaments including MLK weekend (hosted by EGBA with Travel Families all expected to volunteer) and the Cape Cod year-end tourney. Players who accept Travel A roster selection should regularly attend practices and games and should consider the EGBA Travel team as their primary team during the winter (with the exception of school team commitments). The mandate for Travel A coaches is to have fun and develop each player in a competitive environment. Playing time will vary player to player and is based on performance and team needs.
Travel B Teams practice 1 time per week and participate in the RIYBA league and tournaments including MLK weekend (hosted by EGBA with Travel Families all expected to volunteer) and the Cape Cod year-end tourney. Travel B fees are also due after roster selection. This is less of a commitment for players and families in terms of both cost and time. The mandate for Travel B coaches is to have fun, develop each player and ensure each player gets an opportunity to play regularly in the games.
After EGBA announces rosters, full payment is required prior to the first practice and participants can pay online at eghoops.com. The fee covers all games, clinician and gym practice time. Travel uniforms are a separate cost.
