What are the dates of the season?
The season runs from November to March. Practices start in November.

Where do the teams travel to?
Sharon plays in the Metrowest League. Home games are at Mass Premier Courts in Foxboro. Away games are generally within a 30-40 minute drive and are often much closer.

Can my child still play Rec Basketball?
Where at all possible, we attempt to schedule around rec basketball. In fact travel players are strongly encouraged to continue to play Rec as well. Rec basketball is run by the town of Sharon, NOT by the Sharon Travel Basketball Association.

If my child tries out, is he guaranteed to be placed on a team?
No. There will be cuts. This is a competitive program. You must be registered for the tryout and if you can’t make it then contact a board member for alternative options to evaluate the player. An evaluation is required. 

How much will the program cost?
The cost per player ranges between $350-$450. The fee pays for gym time rental, referees, uniforms, league fees and tournament.
