OVERVIEW The information below would be for a regular, non-hybrid season.
RIDES AND BUSSES: Students may NOT be left unattended after a practice or game. Rides must be here in time for player pick up. When a bus is provided, rides must be here within five minutes before the bus is scheduled to leave. If a player's ride is not here, the player MUST be put on the bus. We sometimes hear that a ride is "around the corner" or "down the street" or "will be hear in five minutes." If a ride is not here in time, the player MUST take the late bus. If player pick up becomes a problem, and a player will not take the bus or his family do not want him to take the bus, he may not participate in basketball.
TRYOUTS: Will be held Monday through Friday, after school until either 3:30pm or 4:15pm. Late busses will be provided. Some days might run later and players will need to have their own ride. The number of players on the team, the number of players from each grade, and how long the tryouts run will be determined at the time of tryouts. IMPORTANT: You must have completed all the required paperwork and had a physical before being able to tryout. All the required forms may be picked up at the nurses' offices. Any questions about being eligible to tryout, see the nurse as soon as possible. If you are going to need to schedule a physical, do not wait until the last minute or you might not get it done in time.
SEASON OVERVIEW: We play in the South Jersey Sports League. The league includes teams from Camden County and Burlington County. The season runs from very early November through about the end of February or very early March. Practices are every day Monday through Friday to about 4:15, including half days. Busses will be provided for a 4:15 practice. Practices which are scheduled for later that 4:15 or for a different time slot will require players to arrange for a ride home. Players may miss practice time or come late for extra help or makeup work. Detentions are not excused absences.
There are usually 2-3 games per week. There are no busses to take players home after games, players need a ride home. The bus which takes us to and from an away game, dropping off the players at VMS. Players must then be picked up at the school. They can call part way home to let parents know when to meet them at the school. More information will be presented at the first basketball meetings and tryouts.
