2019-20 Perimeter Eagles Basketball: Boys & Girls Tryouts
6th-8th Grade Boys & Girls Basketball Tryouts
All information on tryouts is listed below.
Basketball is offered to boys and girls in 6th-8th grade. There will be two OR three teams: A, B and C Teams. All practices and games for A & B Teams are Monday-Thursday either immediately after school (3:30-5:00p) OR no later than 6:30p. The C Team, if formed, will practice a minimum of once per week (likely Fridays from 3:30p-5:00p), more depending on the game schedule of the A and B Teams. Playing time for games will be earned through practice performance but every athlete will play in every game for at least a short time (unless disciplinary reasons).
Should the C Team be formed (depends on numbers), they will play a 5-7 game schedule with a minimum of one practice per week. They may have more practices depending on the game schedule of A and B Teams. This practice schedule will be fully determined and laid out to the parents before the season begins. The C Teams will likely play in a regional league at Wesleyan School that plays games on Saturdays ONLY.

Basketball is a tryout sport, meaning not all players will make a team. For basketball, players will be placed on teams based on talent level and coaches' discretion. Teams will be set, but fluidity may happen due to sickness, injury or other extenuating circumstances. For the 2019-20 season, ANY grade level is eligible to make ANY team EXCEPT 8th graders will not play on a C Team.
Season Schedule Information:
Practices will be four days per week, Monday-Thursday, except for game days, for A & B Teams.. Games are typically on Tuesday or Thursday. The season will run from October until end of January. The C team will play 5-7 games with a minimum of one practice per week, likely on Fridays after school.
- A & B Practice times will follow a pattern of 2x early practice or 2x late practice. For example, on a week with no games, the boys teams may practice Monday & Tuesday from 3:30p-5:00p, while the girls practice from 5:00p-6:30p. That same week on Wednesday and Thursday, the times would flip with the girls practicing early (3:30p-5:00p) and the boys practicing late (5:00p-6:30p).
