With the basketball season right around the corner we wanted to update the RAYBA community on same changes to the tryout process. Due to overwhelming feedback from our coaches and families we will be moving to two-day tryouts. The intent of moving to multiple day tryouts is to provide our independent evaluators increased opportunities to observe the skills of our athletes. Day 1 will be one and a half hours with a focus on skills and game-like situations. Day 2 will be one hour of 3on3 and 4on4 gameplay.
If you have any questions, please contact your travel director.

"CHAMPIONS ARE MADE IN THE OFFSEASON"
RAYBA is excited to bring back the 4K Shot Made Club! This summer, players who make 4,000 shots will earn a t-shirt, get recognized on court at half time of a varsity game, and will get shout-outs on the RAYBA social media pages and website! Plus, this year, all who make 4,000 shots will be entered into a drawing to win Timberwolves/Lynx tickets!
Practice at game speed, and use backspin to simulate receiving a pass. Or shoot with a friend, sibling, parent or coach. Shoot a variety of shots to become the best shooter possible. Estimated shots made based from the following activities:
• 60 shots for 1 day at a regular basketball camp
• 100 shots for 1 day at a shooting camp
• 10 shots for every 15 minutes while shooting by yourself
You can track your shots via the 4K Made form found below.

RAYBA provides youth in the communities of Dayton, Otsego and Rogers the opportunity to play organized basketball through House and Travel programs.
Players should be prepared to practice hard, play hard and have fun in a structured basketball environment. RAYBA provides In-House leagues for grades Kindergarten through 12th (Boys and Girls) along with Boys and Girls Travel teams for grades 4th through 8th.
Teams are coached and/or managed by local volunteers. Tryouts are held in September for the Travel teams. In the event a player does not make a Travel team, they are given the option to play on an In-House team.
