So, when are tryouts?
Our 2018 fall/winter season will begin with tryouts on Saturday, August 18, 2018 for all new and returning players. **(Tryouts are closed to only those athletes - and their parents - who have registered and paid.)**
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.
IMPORTANT: OKC Knights is a competitive sports organization. Accordingly, it is our continual goal to train and condition our players in order to increase their confidence, skills' portfolio, and potential playing time. During the season, athletes are played according to the coach's perceived needs of the game at-hand and an athlete's current skill set, commitment level, and attitude. No player is guaranteed playing time or placement on a team. In order to be/remain competitive with the Knights, players should take advantage of team practices (including conditioning opportunities) as well as work on their own and/or with a trainer or teammate.
Location: Cole Community Center, 4400 Northwest Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK 73116
Times: Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the applicable start times(s) in order to check-in and pay.
*The meeting for 10u girls &/or boys (10 years old and younger) - and the subsequent formation of a 10u team(s) - will depend on the # registered and the willingness of a parent(s) to coach that team. We will send notification to all 10u-registered families on the Friday morning prior to tryouts stating whether or not there will be a 10u workout time on August 18th. So, please, be sure to register!
NOTICE: If your child will be turning 11 years old before the end of the year AND is already a somewhat skilled player, please attend the 12u girls/boys' session. Otherwise, attend the 10u girls/boys' meeting.
**Registration closes Thursday, August 16th at 11:59p.**
If you missed the deadline and are interested in playing with the OKC Knights, please select the
"Contact Us" tab and send us your information. Someone will contact you.
IMPORTANT: Each potential player for the 2018-19 season MUST register prior to tryouts. Any player not registered by the deadline will have to do so at the check-in station before going into the gym/court area; on-site registrations may limit the player's time before the coach(es). Notifications regarding the tryouts/workouts (e.g. changes or cancellations) will only be sent to those families that have registered.
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 - especially 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.**
