Frequently asked questions

Is there a fee and what forms need to be turned in?
There is no additional cost to tryout or play on the basketball team. A physical must be turned in and be valid in the past year to tryout. All 6th graders had an entrance physical which can dual as a sports physical if the doctor checked interscholastic sports on the back of the physical. You may check to see your physical information on your Skyward account or call your school nurse at TMS/WBO. There are no additional forms needed to turn in, the parent permission form and concussion form were signed off during online registration. 
 
Does my child need to tryout both days?
Tryouts will run over the course of a two day period. Each day a different skill will be assessed. A tryout date is only excused if there is an excused absence. Please email the coach if you need further clarification. 
 
How many days a week is practice?
Practice is 5 days a week and times are determined by gym space availability. Not all practices are after school due other sports or games.
 
Is there transportation home from practice?
If you are transported to school by morning bus service then you will be provided an activity bus, only if practice ends at 4 PM. If you are not provided with transportation to school because you are a walker then you will not have an activity bus route.
 
How many kids make the team?
8th grade- 10-15 kids
 
7th grade- 10-15 kids
 
6th grade- 10-15 kids on an A team & 10-15 on a B team. There will also be an intramural team that practices late winter-early spring, which is 2 days a week and there are no cuts. The intramural basketball team gives kids an opportunity to meet new friends while learning the basketball basics and playing inter-squad games. 
 
5th grade- 5 kids due to 5th grade not being recognized as a DPVC conference sport. We allow 5th graders to tryout in order to build a program. If a 5th grader makes the team they will be on the 6th grade team. There will also be an intramural team that practices late winter-early spring, which is 2 days a week and there are no cuts. The intramural basketball team gives kids an opportunity to meet new friends while learning the basketball basics and playing inter-squad games. 
 
How many games are there in a week?
There can be up to 3 games in a week. These games may be home or away.
 
Is there transportation to the games?
Yes there is transportation to the games but you either need to take your child home from the game or pick them back up at TMS once the bus returns from an away game. 
 
How long does the season last?
The basketball season will run from mid- October to early February. 
 
Can my child participate on club basketball team and the Troy basketball team?
Yes but Troy needs to be the top priority and chosen over club ball. If the club team is chosen over the Troy team it could result in a game suspension or removal from the team. 
 
Will the school provide a uniform?
Yes the school will provide a uniform top and shorts.
