The Hudson Basketball Association has announced tryout dates for girls' traveling teams for the upcoming 2009-10 season.

The tryouts will determine placement on the winter season traveling teams, and players must attend at least two of the four tryout sessions in order to receive a full evaluation.


Tryouts are Aug. 11, 12, 18 and 20. Tryouts for players entering grades 4-5 run from 6-7:30 p.m. each evening at the middle school. Sixth-grade tryouts are from 6-7:30 at the high school west gym, seventh-grade tryouts are from 7:30-9 in the high school west gym, and eighth-grade tryouts are from 7:30-9 at the middle school.


In addition, the association will host pre-tryout prep sessions, which will include a parents' informational meeting, one week before the tryouts. Fourth-grade pre-tryout camp is Aug. 4 from 6-7:30 p.m.; fifth-grade, Aug. 4 from 7:30-9 p.m.; sixth-grade, Aug. 6 from 6-7:30 p.m.; and seventh and eighth grade, Aug. 6 from 7:30-9 p.m. The cost for traveling basketball is the same as last year -- $225 for fourth-graders and $250 for grades 5-8; scholarships are available.
