Travel Program Details

The HCYP Travel Program offers a highly competitive basketball experience for Boys and Girls Grades 4-8. Teams are selected via tryouts that begin in mid-August to early September.  Registration in our recreation program is not required to attend tryouts.  If not selected for the Travel Program, players should register for our recreation program as soon as possible in order to secure a position on one of our recreation teams. 

Travel teams typically practice twice per week for a total of 3-4 hours on weeknights. They play 2-3 games per weekend against other travel teams and also compete in tournaments. Game sites may be outside of Howard County.   Typically nearly half the games will be in Howard County with the farthest out of county travel time within 45 minutes.

Tryouts for the Travel Program will begin in mid-August to early September and may continue for several weeks.

Travel and Middle School team players MAY NOT participate simultaneously in the HCYP Recreational Program. 

Once selected for a Travel Team the travel registration form and fee must be turned in to secure your child's spot on the team. Once you have paid the fee there will no refunds if your child decides not to play on the team.
