Winter Tryouts: Boys Grades 3 & 4

November 11, 2020


Thayer Sports Center
Braintree , MA

General Information

ASA is moving forward with plans for Winter AAU.  There is much uncertainty across the youth sports industry, we are doing our best to communicate with parents while also trying to be flexible / responsible to the business needs and its employees.  

The Winter  Season will consist of one of three scenarios:

  1. 1.  Massachusetts will allow for game play with options to play both in and outside of state.
  2. 2.  Massachusetts does not allow us to play - options to play will take place in NH
  3. 3.  Team practices only as they fall under Massachusetts state guidelines


We will allow for practice players on each team that will exceed the traditional roster (10-12 players) for those families that only feel comfortable participating in practice vs game play.  


  1. 1.  5 weekend Events and 2 weekly practices = $550 
  2. 2.  4 weekends Events 2 weekly practices  = $450 
  3. 3.  Practice player = 1/2 of the team fee practicing with


Possible Covid related financial scenarios:

  1. 1.  Should games be called off in both Mass and NH prior to first event date, we would still offer practices - cost of the season would become $275 per player.
  2. 2.  If game play begins for a period of time and is then shut down - teams would continue to practice, and pro-rated credit would be applied to account.
  3. 3.  We will not refund any families who decide not to play after committing to Winter season 
  4. 4.  If youth sports / basketball practice are shut down by State of Mass a credit would be applied to account - we will not be able to offer refunds.

Practice Locations:  Keep in mind with limited gym space travel to practice is likely.  We may also have a few weekend practices leading up to tournament play.  Bottom line families need to be flexible.
