Gainesville Travel Coach Application Process is Open

Greetings from GBA & Gainesville Travel Basketball-

The Travel Coach Application process is now up and running on our GBA home page at http://gainesvillebasketball.org/.  Just click on the Orange "Travel Coach" button on the upper right part of the page. 

This is a volunteer position and is for Travel Coaches interested in coaching with us in Boys and Girls grades 5 thru 8.  (4th graders can also tryout and play up.)  Tryouts will be early October with practices following.  FCYBL winter league games begin November.  Winter season ends by Spring Break and then runs into AAU Spring Season.  We practice in local PWC middle school and high school gyms.   

The youth travel basketball scene is truly out of control.  That being said, we are the oldest, largest, best run program with all volunteers- we run entirely at cost.  GBA and Gainesville Travel are far from perfect, but you will be coaching for a very well-run, planned out, large organization with 28 years of experience, doing this for the right reason.  Our goals are to have kids make their local High School basketball teams.  Last year 95% of the players on Battlefield and Patriot (boys and girls) played Gainesville Travel coming up.  We also partner extensively with local HS coaches through meet and greets, clinics, camps and parent / coach meetings.

Our Travel Winter league is not AAU.  We play in a very well-run, calibrated, well-officiated town travel league in Northern Virginia.  Then we play the AAU scene in spring/summer. 

Travel Application process will close Aug 31 and coaching decisions will be announced shortly there after.  This is typically a very competitive process.  Recreation Coach applications start in September.   

If you have further questions or want to learn more, please visit the FAQ page of our web site (the travel section), or reach out to our new volunteer Travel Director, Jim Weinschenk. 

Thank you,

GBA Board
