We are very excited to announce a new Travel basketball team for the upcoming 2017-18 season, created for the Souderton 9th grade (age 14 as of September 1, 2017) class.  This is the first time that SHYBA has had a Travel team at this age level.


Here are some details related to this team:

  1. You must first register for SHYBA, during the early to mid-September Registration period.  If your son played for SHYBA (Travel or Intramurals) last season, you may register online.  If not, please register at one of the five Walk-in dates that are listed on the www.shyba.org  Key Dates page.  The Registration fee for the upcoming season is $150
  2. Tryouts for this team will take place November 17th-21st, at Souderton Area High School, along with the tryouts for the SAHS Varsity and JV teams.  Please check the Key Dates page, under Travel Team tryouts, as November approaches for the specific dates and times.
  3. If your son is selected for this Travel team, there will be an additional fee (approximately $100) to be paid by the end of November.  This fee will cover entry fees for the Inter-County Basketball Association (ICBA), uniforms, tournaments, Referee fees and insurance.  If your son is not selected for this team, he will participate in the SHYBA Boys 13/14 Intramural League.  Refunds will not be granted if your son is not selected for the Travel team.
  4. If your son is selected to play on the SAHS Varsity or JV teams, you will be granted a refund of your SHYBA Registration fee.
  5. Practices (two or three per week starting soon after tryouts) and Home ICBA Games (starting in early January) will take place at Souderton Area High School.
  6. Here is a note from SAHS Head Coach Tim Brown that applies to all Freshman trying out for the Varsity, JV or Boys-14 Travel teams:

There will be a meeting directly after school on Thursday, 9/7 in the LGI for anyone who is interested in trying out. It is very important that incoming freshman attend. If your freshman son cannot attend, please email me. The meeting shouldn't last longer than 15 minutes; for returning players it may last about 30 minutes. 

We are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity to your family.  If you have any questions about this team, please feel free to contact me by email or at the cell number below.


Thank you,


Pete Messner
