Gryphon Rep Tryouts and Principles

Policies and procedures regarding the Rep Program tryouts will be administered by the Guelph Youth Basketball Association tryout committee. The committee will hold the tryouts in accordance with the standards that have been established by the committee and will periodically review the tryout process to ensure it is consistent with the goals of Guelph Youth Basketball Association and Ontario Basketball. The Rep Tryout Committee will take into consideration any requests from parents and players regarding the selection of players and the make-up of teams. However the committee, acting in the best interest of all players and Guelph Youth Basketball Association will have the final say in this regard. In general, the #1 team will be comprised of the best players (as determined by the committee) in an age group.

Who is the Tryout Committee?

The Tryout Committee will consist of all the coaches working with the age group and the independent evaluators selected by the Tryout Committee.

What if a Player is Absent During Tryouts?

The Guelph Youth Basketball Association are committed to providing each player the opportunity to play at a level that is commensurate with his or her abilities. Every effort should be made to attend the scheduled tryout session. If a player is unable to attend the scheduled tryout, a written notification must be provided to the Chair of the Tryout Committee prior to the tryout date. The committee will consider players unable to compete in the process due to injury or an unavoidable circumstance for inclusion on a rep team. An injured player must register at the tryout and participate in any skills unaffected by the injury. In addition, the injured player must provide medical documentation of their injury and the expected date at which they can fully participate. To maintain the integrity of the tryout process, the Board will consider injured players only on a case-by-case basis and will consider that player’s history with the GYBA Gryphons Rep Program.
