The dates for tryouts for the CYA travel teams (which play in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League) have now been set and start the first week of October (see schedule below). Players must attend at least 2 of the three tryouts held for their age group. The travel teams, unlike the house teams, are based on the players age as of October 1st of this year; however, each team is also allowed to roster 2 players who miss the birthday cutoff but are in the same grade (for example, some who turned 11 on August 15th but was in sixth grade could try out for the 11 and under age group since 11 year olds are normally in sixth grade).
Players are allowed to try out at higher age level (i.e, play up) but can only be considered for those age groups for which they attend 2 of the 3 tryouts. Thus, if someone who is 11 tries out for the Boys 12 and under team and does not make the team, he would have to have attended two of Boys 11 and under team tryouts as well to be considered for that group.
NOTE: Everyone trying out for these teams must be registered by the second tryout date. If you do not make a travel team and do not want to play in the CYA house program, you can request a full refund of your registration fee. You can register online on the CYA home page, www.chantillyyouth.org.
The tryout locations, dates and times are listed below. Note that these are subject to change due to gym changes and the like so make sure that you check this site frequently for updates.

NOTE: Boys 10 and under has a separate tryout for 4th graders only. All 4th graders should attend this tryout if possible. Selected 4th graders will then be invited to attend the remaining tryouts for this age group.
