Welcome back basketball players and parents of the Armstrong Boys Travel and the Armstrong Cooper House and Girls Travel! Our 2015-2016 season kicks off in a few short months. With the new season, brings a few changes.
Grades 4th-8th will now be required to purchase their own uniform. Our current uniforms are end of life and we as a board are moving toward player ownership versus keeping inventory. The new uniforms are lighter weight, reversible, trendy and will be sized to fit your child. Note: If your child loses or destroys their uniform, you will have to pay out of pocket $71 for a new uniform. At the end of the season the uniform is yours to keep and reuse in the following year(s). Every effort will be made to keep uniform design consistent for 2-4 years to allow player reuse.
Fee Changes for Travel (Includes cost of new uniform):
4th Grade Boys/Girls: $225
5th - 8th Grade Boys/Girls: $275
