4th Grade Pre-Travel

Even though these are teams that will practice and play games, we view it as a developmental year to help players prepare for 5th grade travel basketball. Enhanced skills and concepts will be taught to help introduce to players what they will see at the next level.

Players will tryout and be chosen for this team. Players who are chosen for this team will also participate in the house league.

The 4th grade travel teams will practice once a week with their coach (Sundays) and have a skills clinic once a week with High Rise Basketball Academy (Tuesdays). Combined with house basketball, 4th grade travel players will be playing four days per week.
