2021 CNBA BASKETBALL PROGRAM INFORMATION
The CNBA Basketball program is a great opportunity to develop as
a basketball player through an emphasis on fundamentals,
team play, sportsmanship, and development of basketball knowledge.
In addition, through CNBA each athlete will have the chance to
participate in 4-5 tournaments against high level competition from
across the Midwest. It is our goal that every participant in the
CNBA program makes friends for life, learns the game,
competes at a high level, and improves as a player. Go Knights!
The 2021 CNBA Basketball tryouts will be held on February 27th, 2021 for girls and February 28th, 2021 for boys. Tryouts will be held at the Penner Athletic Courts in Aurora. Each tryout will be 1 ½ to 2 hours long and is an open tryout for girls and boys in 4th-12th grades. Tryouts will consist of drill work as well as live scrimmage evaluation periods. At the conclusion of the tryout day coaches and evaluators will select the teams and athletes and parents will be notified by 10:30 p.m. via the CNBA website of who has been selected for each team. Our goal is to have multiple teams per age level and that will be dependent on participant numbers and coaching availability. Not everyone who tries out for a team may be selected.
Practices / Tournaments:
During the week we will practice on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights. You will practice 2 times per week. Duration of practice will be 1 ½ to 2 hours on weeknights and 2 hours on Sundays. You are allowed to miss practices but if it becomes a problem, playing time will be reduced or you might be asked to no longer be part of the program. We expect you to make 80% of practices. Each team that CNBA fields will be scheduled to compete in 4 or 5 tournaments beginning in mid/late May and concluding in early July.
2021 CNBA PROGRAM COST:
Current 5th-8th Graders
$600 for 5 tournaments, entries, uniform, administrative fees, and facility rental.
Current 4th Graders and 9th-12th Graders
$500 for 4 tournaments, entries, uniform, administrative fees, and facility rental.
There is a 10% discount per player if immediate family
members (siblings) are selected to CNBA teams.
Uniforms and shooting shirts this year will be ordered specifically for each player and are included in the cost to participate. Samples will be available for sizes at tryouts. This uniform is yours once season the ends. $300 of participation cost due at CNBA team tryouts. If not selected to a team your deposit will be mailed back to you. Remaining amount for those selected to a team due by May 1st, 2021. The cost to and from tournaments, which would include hotel, gas and food are the responsibility of the player. We feel the investment in individual improvement is well worth the program cost and considerably cheaper than similar programs. The focus on high-level practice time, individual instruction, and the level of competition faced each tournament is the focus of CNBA basketball.
