Travel Basketball Tryouts, for the East Orange YMCA Hawks!

The East Orange YMCA’s Travel Basketball program is designed to aid in the physical and emotional development of children through competition. Tryouts are held in three divisions (Intramural, 12U and 14U) for both a winter and spring season.

In order to maintain the highest standards of health and safety, this season we will be participating in the newly formed “Metro Y of the Oranges Basketball League”. We will be competing against other teams within our association, the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges. This will ensure that the strict health and safety procedures we have put in place during emergency child care, summer camp, and school age child care will be maintained throughout the season.
Tryout Registration is Required, Space is limited.
In order to comply with capacity restrictions, advanced registration is required for tryouts. If you have not yet done so, register your child for a tryout date.
