Besides Journeyman’s seasonal sessions we do offer travel basketball!
This is not the same program as Journeyman Sessions!
Many student athletes look for a competitive environment to allow their skills to grow often facing top notch teams from out-of-state. SELECT is this program. It follows a far different structure with the same character and team building structure as Journeyman but does not share the same rules in regards to playing time. More advanced players will receive more time! This, of course, is dependent upon the game situation and the opinion of the teams head coach.
TIME FRAME & COMMITMENT
The SELECT program starts mid March and often runs until the first week of June. These months may change slightly depending on an individual teams schedule. A season normally takes under three months. We also offer a tune-up in October and try-outs can vary with times posted for December, January and February.
Practices are twice a week. These practices will be 1.5hrs to 2hrs. long. The days of these practices are set up individually by a group of coaches so it can fit their personal schedule and often the general availability of the team. There will often be a week of for April vacation.
A tournament season can include 6-7 tournaments. These tournaments are conducted on the weekend. Normally one tournament per season is a “one day”. This, like other categories can change by the request of the team or its coach. Rest assured the SELECT program strives to give you a solid value for your investment. Tournament schedules are often not provided to SELECT staff until the Wednesday before a tournament. And often we are advised that a “first pass” of a schedule will be amended so we often wait a bit longer for a final schedule.
70% of our tournaments are local. We consider, Hampton, Southern Maine, Nashua and towns within that range to be local. One or two tournaments a season will include hotel stay! It is your responsibility to communicate with SELECT regarding group rates and try to keep athletes from a team together (at the same hotel).
We encourage our teams to stick together. This often means, trying to stay in the same hotel, eating out together and staying in tune with group chats to find out what the team is doing. Ultimately we understand this is your decision as a parent but we encourage our teams to learn about each other on many levels to ensure the best possibility to grow as a team.
