Final Word on Spring Travel Teams

Thank you to all those who tried out for Gainesville Travel Spring Season Basketball teams.  We regularly post on this site all the GBA & Gainesville Travel players playing College Basketball, High School Basketball & Middle School Basketball.  We are proud of all our kids and their hard work, led by excellent volunteer coaches.  94% of the players at our local High Schools play with us, 85% of the players at our local Middle Schools play with us.  We encourage you to ask local friends and neighbors with older children that play in High School or College.

At this time, most teams are finalized; however we do have a few remaining openings on a per-team, as-needed basis.  If you truly believe you have an advanced youth basketball player, please reach out to our travel director (Adrian Gresham) at  to discuss a private tryout with the appropriate team and coach. 

We also will be having a 2nd and final public tryout for the following grades only:

-9th grade boys- Wed March 1- 8:00 PM

-10th grade boys- Wed March 1- 9:00 PM

-11th grade boys- Wed March 1- 9:00 PM

(The above public tryouts are at The United Sportsplex, 10103 Residency Road, Manassas, VA 20110)


Thank you,

Gainesville Travel (Grades 3 thru 8) & Gainesville Elite (Grades 9 thru 12)
