 REGISTER HERE *For a $20 tryout fee you can attend one or BOTH tryout sessions*
Come to one or both tryout sessions for one low fee, two basketball workouts for the price of one.

We will be forming teams for boys starting in grade 3 through 8 and highly competitive High School teams (9th – 11th) again this spring/summer with DBA Drive Basketball.

This is a tryout for a competitive AAU basketball club team and not everyone is selected for a team. We will be having multiple tryout dates but it is highly encouraged that you come to the first available tryout in your age group and suggest you attend multiple tryouts so that our coaches can get to know you better.
