Our Travel Basketball teams require a competitive try-out process open to all players within each team’s age and gender for players grades 3 thru 8th. Players chosen for UMBC Travel teams do not play as part of our intramural program. Players not chosen to be a part of the travel team are credited 25.00 towards their intramural registration and placed into their appropriate grade intramural leagues.
Only players that are registered here will be eligible to be considered for travel and participate in tryouts.
