So, when are tryouts?
Our 2017-18 fall program will begin with tryouts on Saturday, August 12th for all new and returning players.**
A $25 non-refundable deposit (cash or check) will be required before participating in tryouts. This deposit will be applied to the player's fees should he/she go on to play with one of the Knights' basketball teams during the upcoming season.
Does the word "tryouts" make you nervous or hesitant to register? Please allow us to ease your concerns. Tryouts - for lack of a better word - occurs at the jv and varsity level. It is an opportunity for coaches to consider which team (jv &/or varsity) a player will be best utilized and allowed to shine. Regardless of the team with which the athlete plays, they will be trained and, thus, made ready for their "next" level.
Tryouts for the younger-level teams is an opportunity for the coaches to meet the players and see them in action on the court (of course not playing as they will in "real" life) and for players to meet/see their soon-to-be teammates. It is definitely an exciting time as the youth get a taste of the upcoming season.
Location: Cole's Community Center
4400 Northwest Expy, Oklahoma City, OK 73116
Times: Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the applicable start times(s) in order to check-in and pay.
*The meetings for these age groups (10u boys & girls and 12u GIRLS) will be rescheduled. Please be sure to register your child in order to receive future notifications. NOTICE: If your SON will be turning 11 years old before the end of this year, please attend the 12u boys' session this Saturday.
IMPORTANT: Each potential player for the 2017-18 season MUST register prior to tryouts. Any players not registered by tryout time will have to do so at the check-in station before going into the gym/court area; this may limit the player's time before the coach(es).
**Registration, attendance at tryouts, and/or prior participation with the OKC Knights DOES NOT GUARANTEE placement on a team. In the event that there are too many potential players for a given team - primarily at the varsity level, that team will be capped. Players will be invited at the discretion of the coach - and final approval of the Athletic Director and/or Board.**
