2015-2016 Program Survey Results

Thank you to all who completed a 2015-2016 STBC Program Survey. 92.5% of respondents gave STBC a 4 or 5 for overall experience!

 

The 2015-2016 Simsbury Travel Basketball Survey results were outstanding. We received 53 responses, a fantastic level of feedback. Not every question was required to be answered, so the number of responses vary by question.

 

90% or more of the responses were 4 or 5 for every question, in some cases over 95% or responses were 4 or 5. We are very thankful for all the positive responses and will strive to do as well or better in the coming season. The feedback with lower ratings shows us the areas where we have the greatest opportunity for improvement. CLICK HERE for the full survey results.

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.

  • Minimum playing time
