So, when are tryouts?
Our 2018 fall program will begin with tryouts on a Saturday in August (actual date to be announced in July)
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? Tryouts - for lack of a better word - occurs at the jv and varsity levels. It is an opportunity for coaches to consider which team (jv &/or varsity) a player will be best utilized and allowed to shine.
"Tryouts" for the younger-level teams is simply an opportunity for the coaches to meet the players and see them in action on the court (of course not playing as they would 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.
OKC Knights is a competitive sports organization. Accordingly, it is our continual goal to train and condition our players in order to increase both their confidence and their skills' portfolio. In order to be/remain competitive, players should take full advantage of team practices as well as work on their own and/or with a buddy or trainer.
IMPORTANT: During the season, athletes are played based upon the coach's perceived needs of the game at-hand and the players' current skill levels & attitudes.
Location: To be announced
Times: Please arrive 15 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 boys & girls) will be scheduled after we determine the level of interest. Please be sure to register your child in order to receive future notifications.
NOTICE: If your child will be turning 11 years old before the end of this year, please attend the 12u girls/boys' session.
IMPORTANT: Each potential player for the 2018-19 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.**
