Town Travel League
Brookline Travel Basketball is a competitive league for boys (grades 4 - 8) and girls (grades 4 - 8) living in/ attending school in Brookline. The Travel program is led by volunteer coaches and endeavors to provide an enhanced basketball experience focused on player development, building a competitive team spirit, and sportsmanship. Teams play in the Metrowest Basketball League. Coaches are often parents
Team placements are determined by grade level. Not every player who attends the tryouts is guaranteed to make a roster and there may be cuts. The approach to team selection is typically based on skill level creating A, B, and possibly C teams (depending on participation) at a given grade level. See our Tryouts page for more details.
Time commitment: Participants are required to make a strong commitment to the program. Each team will have two 90-minute weeknight practices and one League game typically on Sundays as part of a 12-game schedule. Practices begin in late-October/early-November and the regular season runs from the beginning of December through the end of February/beginning of March, followed immediately by playoffs.
At the discretion of individual team coaches, teams may also participate in pre-season and holiday tournaments and schedule non-league games in addition to the league schedule. These additional events are optional elements of the program.
This year's League schedule will begin Sunday 12/03/2023. Note: The Metrowest League does schedule games on the Sundays around February school vacation week and the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Cost: If selected for a Travel team the program registration cost is $185. The program has new uniforms this year supplied by New Balance. Uniform fees are additional.
Registration is administered by the Town of Brookline Recreation Department.
