Travel Team Guidelines and Information


Created October, 2017


The CYBA offers a competitive travel program for boys and girls in grades 4 thru 8 who are residents of Cinnaminson, NJ.


1. Program Objective

The objective of the CYBA Travel Program is to provide a developmental program for advanced players in a structured and competitive environment other than Cinnaminson’ Town Program. Travel teams will endeavor to compete against the best teams and players from other youth basketball associations in and around South Jersey.


2. Commitment

Players and parents must be able to make a MAJOR COMMITMENT to traveling team practices, games and tournaments. Players are expected to be at all practices, games and tournaments. Any player that cannot make this type of commitment should not try out for the traveling team.


3. Schedule

The travel/tournament season begins in late November and will end in early March with practices beginning in late October. 4th Grade teams will play a 12 game schedule and the 5th-8th Grade Teams will play a 16 game regular season schedule. 


4. Tryout and Player Selection Process


  • Only residents of Cinnaminson may participate on a CYBA Travel Team.


  • All players must attend at least one of the two evaluation sessions posted. However, CYBA strongly recommends that a player attends both evaluations if possible.
  • The player selection process will include evaluations that will be completed by an independent evaluation committee with one site coordinator during the tryouts. This process will bring the highest level of objectivity to the selection of the teams possible. Players will be evaluated both on drills and game play.


  • The players with the highest evaluation ratings will be selected for the travel team.


  • The target number of players per team has been set at 8-10 .  This will help maximize playing time and developmental opportunities in games/practices. Further, the younger teams (4th & 5th)  MAY keep up to as many as 12. 


  • In the Board’s sole discretion, a second tier team may be formed after the try-out process. The decision to form the second tier team will be made after consideration of many factors, including, but not limited to, league availability, coach availability, gym space and number of potential players. CYBA will make every effort to form second tier teams where possible. 



5. Playing Time


There is no minimum playing time requirement in CYBA. However, we do encourage coaches to make every effort to play each player if the situation permits and to not sit the same player(s) for the entire game.


We do not encourage parents to discuss playing time with their child’s coach.  However, should you decide to do so, please do not approach the coach before, during or immediately after a game.  The time to have any such discussion is on a non – game day and not in the presence of the players or other parents.


6. Coach Selection


Those interested in coaching a travel team must submit a letter (or email) of interest to the Board Member in charge of the appropriate Travel Basketball Program as indicated on the Website.  Coaches will be selected after teams have been formed.


Teams are limited to one Head Coach and one Assistant Coach.  Only the Head Coach and/or Assistant Coach are permitted to run practices and sit on the bench during games.


All coaches are encouraged to have a parents meeting prior to the season to discuss their coaching philosophy and the philosophies of CYBA as well as their expectations for the players and parents.


7. Code of Conduct:

Good sportsmanship is essential. Players, coaches and parents must maintain good sportsmanship at all CYBA events…


·         Applaud good plays for both teams and never ridicule or yell at any of the children.


·         Parents are not to sideline coach.


·         Parents are not permitted to speak to officials before, during or after the game.


·         Any questions a parent may have can be addressed to the coach the day after the game, not immediately following or during a game.


·         Any technical fouls against a parent are considered a team foul and that parent may be asked to leave the gym.




* Failure to comply with the above Code of Conduct Policy will result in:

1.   Verbal Warning

2.   Removal from event & incident filed with the Board of Directors

3.   Parental Season suspension from attending any event & incident filed with Board of Directors



7. Travel Fee’s – 4th Grade ($120)  5th-8th Grade ($150)


The CYBA travel registration fee includes:

·      Traveling League Fee

·      Equipment

·      Referee Fee’s

·      Insurance


Uniform Fee and Tournament fees are extra


Uniforms will be $75 per Player (Reversible Uniform, Shooter Shirt, Socks, Practice Jersey) We are looking into only doing Uniforms every other year to help  keep cost down.  We can also look into doing a Travel Fundraiser to help offset these cost. If any parent is interested in being on a Fundraiser Committee for the CYBA. Let us know.
