Thank you for your interest in this year’s team tryouts for Roosevelt Area Select Basketball. We will do our best to assess your student-athlete’s skills and needs, so they can be placed on a team with a positive environment that develops their fundamentals and love for the game. Our evaluation will include a quick athletic warm-up, fundamental drills, and live scrimmage through 1 on 1, 3 on 3, and 5 on 5. Even if you don’t make a team, we can still help your student-athlete find another local team to join, and we would welcome them to join our training program throughout the Winter. We have a scholarship program available in honor of my former Roosevelt High School coach Forrest Ward. To apply for this scholarship please contact director Chase Young.
After tryouts, an email will be sent out with more details about the team, coach, practice, training, and events. You will be asked to secure your spot on the team by filling out a player acceptance form (which can be filled out online). If you don’t get an email by Wednesday please contact us.
All teams will participate in the City Rec league on Saturdays in the division that fits their skill level. Some teams will opt to play in some AAU tournaments as well. If you are planning on playing for Roosevelt Select and a local rec team, you will need to choose since they do not allow players to play on both. Our program has consistent training, practices, coaches, competition, positive messaging, and direction to help them prepare for HS basketball and life. League usually starts in December and ends in February or the beginning of March. Players will participate in a tournament prior to league play to help prepare them.
Players will have a weekly team training with coach Chase Young where they will be running fundamental core offenses and defenses as well as practicing individual skills throughout the season. These team training sessions will reflect an intense HS practice environment. Players will also have a weekly team practice with their team and coach. We understand it’s hard to juggle multiple teams, sports, school, and family, so we ask that you at least make one of these two weekly team gatherings. Hopefully you can make both, but we understand if you can’t.
Jerseys and shorts are included in the team fee, but the league fee is not. Once teams are formed parents will need to register and pay the league fee ($80) at Ravenna rec center.
Thank you for taking the time to read this information. We hope to see you at the tryouts!
Roosevelt Select Director
