In preparation for the winter season, NCBA is offering open runs for girls looking forward to trying out in October. Coach Palmer, Coach Evans, and Coach Kelner will oversee the pre-season, offering instruction, organized scrimmages, and feedback.

Pre-season is OPTIONAL, but a great opportunity to get on the court before tryouts. The price covers all six sessions, and girls are welcome to attend as many (or as few) sessions as they'd like. Girls must register in advance to attend.


5th through 8th grade girls, interested in trying out for travel basketball.


October 3rd, 4th, and 5th

October 10th, 11th, and 12th

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these in place of tryouts?

No, they are supplemental. Players must attend tryouts to be eligible for a travel team. Attending these sessions is an opportunity for the girls to get back into the game and provide them an opportunity for additional exposure to the game and coaches.

What if I have a conflict?

Come to as much of the sessions as possible on days you are available. The time will be supervised but not overly structured with opportunities for the girls to play with different teammates.

Can 3rd/4th graders or high schoolers attend?

No. Pre-season is only open to 5th-8th graders.

Is there a pre-season program for 5th-8th grade boys?

Yes. Please contact Danny Melzer for more information.
