Tryout Information for Turnpike County Programs

In addition to its popular House league, Turnpike Basketball also offers Select (Travel) teams for players who are ready to play in a more competitive league. Our Select teams play against teams from other basketball programs in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL). Select teams are competitive and require tryouts; your child is not guaranteed a spot on a team, and there is no guaranteed playing time.

If this is not the type of program you’re looking for, we encourage you to play in our house league. Register for House league here: http://www.turnpikebasketball.org/registration/

This season, Turnpike Basketball will offer select teams for boys in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades, and for girls in 6th and 8th grades.

Players are strongly encouraged to attend all tryouts to be properly evaluated, but must attend at least one of the tryout dates.
