All tryouts are held at Henry James Memorial School, 7:00 - 8:30PM.
This season for the first time, we will offer a 4th grade boys team.
Please help us spread the word to anyone you know with a 4th grader.
The tryout for each grade level will be two nights. Players should plan to attend both nights of tryouts. Please arrive approximately 15 minutes early for tryouts (please no earlier than 15 minutes). Each player must be signed in the first night of tryouts by a parent or guardian. There will be a brief meeting at 7:05 on the first night of each tryout for parents/guardians. Tryouts are closed to parents.
All candidates should register using the "Register Online" Tab on the left side of the website at www.STBCweb.com or the "Register NOW" button on the top right of our home page.
There is no cost to try out.
Parents, please check the “PARENTS” tab for STBC Expectations, information about tryouts and more.
The number and structure of each team will be determined by the skill levels and number of candidates. We hope to offer the following teams:
