Tryouts for the Junior Patriot Basketball feeder program will be held Sunday, Nov. 6 and Sunday, Nov. 13 in the fieldhouse. The Junior Patriot program is open to boys and girls in grades 6-8 who live in District 125. Tryouts are free, but prospective players need to register in advance through the Junior Patriot Basketball website. Players need to bring their own basketball to tryouts, and are encouraged to attend both dates.
The tryout times on Nov. 6 and 13 will be noon to 1:30 p.m. for eighth grade, 1:45 to 3:15 p.m. for seventh grade, and 3:30 to 5 p.m. for sixth grade.
The competitive program teaches fundamental offensive and defensive skills, teamwork and sportsmanship. Each team will play approximately 30-35 games and have 20 practices. The season runs through March. The cost of the program is $525; payment isn't required until after final team selections are made.
