The Norwood Basketball Association has completed its tryouts for its 2021-22 travel season.

Travel teams can be found at the link above --- 2021-22 Travel Teams.

In anticipation of a full Metrowest Basketball season to begin mid-October the NBA is planning to participate with boys and girls teams in grades 4-8. The season typically runs to the third week of March.

The number of teams at each grade will depend on tryout attendance and interest as well as the ability to find a coach.   The hope is for two teams at each grade but there is no guarantee.

 Fee for travel is $250/player with a family maximum of $500.  Players will not pay until teams are formed. Those participants selected for teams will receive payment instructions.

Uniforms for first time players are paid for by NBA.  This is also extended for anyone who played for the first time in the shortened 2020/2021 season. 

Any other returning player who needs a new uniform must order one at their own expense.
