Tigard Basketball Association

Recreational

Posted Aug 16, 2015

The Tigard Basketball Association recreational program is a league for boys and girls in grades 3 through 12 where we pride ourselves on teaching the game, having fun, and focusing on the kids. Our goal is to develop fundamental basketball skills, sportsmanship, and self esteem through our efforts.

It is our hope that each player becomes progressively more competitive building their skill and confidence in a fun environment as they advance through each of the Tigard Recreation Basketball grade levels.

TBA programs are open to all youth located within the City of Tigard and/or the Tigard-Tualatin School District boundary.

Program Details

Programs: TBA offers grade specific programs for boys 3rd to 8th grade and dual grade programs for high school boys. Girls 3rd to 8th grade have dual grade programs. High school girls grades 9 to 12 are combined. Players are required to play at their grade level. TBA does not allow players to play "up".

Practices: Teams practice two evenings a week either on Mon/Wed or Tue/Thrus. Practices are held at various Tigard elementary and middle school locations. Practices are tentatively scheduled to begin mid November each season.

Games: Grades 3 to 8 play games on Saturday. Games run from 8:30 AM until around 5pm. High school games are played on Friday evenings with an occassional Thursday or Saturday game if conflicts arise. Teams are scheduled to play 12 games beginning in December and ending early March (weather permitting - if the school closes, so does our access to the gym).

Tryouts: TBA conducts pre-season no-cut tryouts. All players who register are placed on teams provided space and coaches are available. Tryouts are just an opportunity for coaches to evaluate players before the draft. Attendance at tryouts is not required. Players will be place on teams regardless of participation.

Team Placement: All programs create teams by draft. Coaches select their players by drafting from the available player pool. Players not attending tryouts are "hat picks", i.e. random draws. As players are selected by draft, requests for placement on a specific team or coach are not accepted.
