Duration:  September 2019 – March 2020

Practices:  Two Practices per week with volunteer head coach as well as professional skill development coaches Dave Groharing (Strictly Shooting) & Elliot Engelmann (Power Through Basketball).  Every practice will have some skill development and team development focuses that will be assisted by Dave and/or Elliot.  This method will ensure that every player who is selected to be a part of the IBA Travel program for 2020 will improve in individual and team related skills.

Games:  Games will be played on the weekends in various tournaments.  This year, teams will compete in at least two weekends every month during the 6 month season.

Cost: $900 + Uniform Package ($Cost TBD)

Program Description:

IBA Travel program will consist of two practices each week as well as games two weekends or more each month.  This year, the travel teams will have professional skill development coaching provided by Dave Groharing (Strictly Shooting) & Elliot Engelmann (Power Through Basketball) to assist volunteer coaches consistently, throughout the season.  Each team member will be provided opportunities to improve at each practice.  Taking advantage of those opportunities will earn them opportunities in games.  Playing time is not guaranteed, it is earned through consistent hard work on improving one’s individual skills within a team concept.

Games will be played primarily on weekends.  Typically, schedules are not released for games until 24-48  hours before the weekends begin.  Please have patience as we will disperse that information ASAP to parents and others that need to know.  We will do our best to provide all scheduling information as soon as we have verified its accuracy.

We encourage open dialogue within our program but we have a strict 24-hour policy.  More specifically, should you have any concerns that need to be addressed, we ask that you wait 24 hours after the event has occurred and send an email to iba4hoops@yahoo.com.  He will be over seeing our Travel programs and will follow up with concerns accordingly.
