The cost for the season is $250.00 to play on a local level team which covers practice space, tournament registration (8-10 tournaments / team) and coaching expenses (all of our coaches are volunteers).  The local level team will play in the Triad area and the only college showcase events that they MAY play in would be in North Carolina.  

The plan is to offer sixty-six spots total (national and local teams together) plus an additional eleven spots for a 7th grade ONLY LOCAL team.

Our program does not cover participant or parent’s travel expenses.

The practice schedule and tournament schedule will be posted in January of 2020 following our parent interest meeting scheduled for Saturday, January 18th at 10:00 a.m. at: place Bishop McGuinness.

Travel team registration is open to rising 7th-11th graders.  The question always comes up “Do 7th graders have any other option rather than the travel team”?  We will have a local team for 7th (and 8th and maybe even 9th grades) that will play in and around the triad area. That team will play from March-September as well.  An additional eleven spots are available for the 7th grade local team. There will NOT be a SPRING ONLY 7th Grade Team.

Coach for the 7th grade team is: TBA. Cost for the team is $250.00 and registration can be accessed below. 7th Grade Team Only Registration:

  1. .

August – October meeting dates are posted on the front page of this website.

Number of teams formula for 2020:  every eleven (11) players = one (1) team.  Meaning, we will need a USA Basketball Gold Licensed Coach per team.

Coaches (Level posted at a later date):

  • T.J. Eggers
  • Trish Grant / Amanda Stanley (assistant)
  • Merritt Rizoti
  • Barbara Robinson
  • Rebecca Role / Calvin Davis (assistant)

Participants are listed below as NT = National Team or LT = Local Team. Players that are listed for the National Team are expected to attend their team’s national travel tournaments especially in July. It is a huge commitment so if you know ahead of time that you / your daughter cannot or will not play in July, please do not sign up for a national team level team. 

If there is no level posted by a name, it means the participant has not decided on the level of play as of yet. Participants must have paid or are in Stealers For Life to be listed below. Stealers For Life participants have to email Coach Robinson to let him know they are intending to play in 2020 in order to be listed below.
