Girls Basketball

2022-2023 Girls Basketball Season

November – February 

TRYOUTS: We are delighted that your daughter has expressed an interest in trying out for the basketball team! Tryouts will be held on Monday and Wednesday, November 7th and 9th, from 3:45 until 5:25 each afternoon. A cut may be made after each day. Players trying out for the team must have a ride home by 5:30. There will be an activity bus for those players who need a ride. If you are picking up your child from tryouts, please be here by 5:25. If any student is not picked up by 5:30, she will be placed on the activity bus for transportation home.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:  Each player should dress appropriately for basketball. Players are encouraged to wear t-shirt and shorts and must have sneakers. Parents are encouraged not to buy new equipment for tryouts. Please wait until after cuts are made before purchasing new shoes or basketball clothing.      

TEAM SELECTION:  Players will be evaluated on their ability to shoot, pass, dribble, play defense, follow directions, and work well with others. Grades and behavior at school will also be considered before final cuts. We reserve the right to cut a player at anytime for grades or behavior issues either at school or at practice. 

ELIGIBILITY:  Roanoke City Schools require physicals for Middle School sports. All players attending tryouts are required to have a physical on file in our school’s office before tryouts begin.  It must be a VHSL physical form. Forms are available in the main office.  Physicals on file from fall sports are good through the end of the year. Any student with an F or 3 on their report card is ineligible to try out.
