Club Information

Introduction

The Simsbury Travel Basketball Club provides an organized youth basketball program for Simsbury residents in grades 4 through 8. Teams compete against teams from towns in the Hartford, CT area with most games scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays. Teams are formed in the fall based on tryouts. Practice usually begins in November. Games usually begin in December and continue into late February or early March.

Philosophy

  • Teach players the basic skills of basketball
  • Build confidence in each player and to bring out their individual talent for the game
  • Teach sportsmanship and fair play through a team sport
  • Provide an opportunity for each player to participate and have fun
  • Enforce team concepts and to enhance knowledge of the sport
  • Teach players the responsibility of each team member to try their best and to encourage their teammates to do the same
  • Prepare players for a higher level of competition and commitment to continue to play the sport at the next level.

Schedule:

Check the Weekly Schedule menu item on the left for weekly games and practice times.  During the season, teams typically practice twice a week on week nights for 90 minutes.  Games are usually on weekends.  Our teams play in the CBTBL, CGBL and NCC leagues.
