Are there "elite" or "travel" teams? Yes. PYB organizes travel teams for third- through sixth-graders. This will be in addition to the regular PYB season.
Remember, your child cannot try out for a PYB travel team if he or she is not signed up to play for PYB by Oct 1st.
How are travel teams picked? There are tryouts during the month of November practices. Everyone is welcome to try out. No parents are allowed into the tryouts. The number of teams we will have depends upon player and coach interest. We encourage children to show up for travel tryouts even if they are "on the fence".
What is the commitment for a travel team? There are two extra practices per week through February. Travel teams play either Saturday or Sunday at the Babe Stern Center in December and January. Travel teams also play in fiver weekend tournaments in February and March.
What is the cost of the travel team? $100 in addition to the regular registration fee. There are no scholarships for the travel team. This covers extra games plus a travel uniform.
