BOYS TRAVEL TEAMS for 2021-22
Below you will find the 2021-2022 Sudbury travel basketball team rosters.
Each year to create the Lincoln Sudbury travel teams, we start with a blank slate. SYB utilizes evaluators that do not have a child in the grade they evaluate. All evaluators are volunteers who have been involved in basketball for many years playing, coaching and/or officiating experience at multiple levels including AAU, high school, or college. During the player assessment and team selection process, the player names are not provided to the evaluators and are not on the evaluator sheets – the evaluator sheets only have the players’ pinnie numbers (not names). The evaluators created the team rosters based on hours of their own live assessments, group review and debate of each player ensuring a balanced composition of positions/speed/size on each team.
After the teams are created, we then select the coach for that team. Coach selections are based on the candidate's expertise and experience in basketball, coaching, and other youth related leadership activities, as well as overall credentials, approach, and if applicable, prior year parent feedback. We recognize that having consistency in coaches year to year is valuable, and it can also be positive for the kids to experience different coaches as part of their SYB careers and development.
For those players who were not placed on a travel team, we want to thank you for trying out and encourage you to keep working on your basketball skills. You will be playing in our in-town basketball program and have an opportunity to play basketball this winter.
Keep in mind that regardless of placement, the kids will have a great season together and have an opportunity to make friends and learn and grow as basketball players.
It is important to note that travel basketball is a major winter commitment that includes three events per week. As a participant in the program, it is expected that priority be given to basketball relative to other sports or extracurricular activities.
Thank you again for your time, and we look forward to an exciting season of basketball.
