  1. What is Glen Rock Travel Basketball?  

    • Glen Rock Travel Basketball is a travel program for 2nd & 3rd grade boys and girls in Glen Rock. You are eligible to play if you are a Glen Rock resident or attend a Glen Rock school.  Tryouts will be run by private basketball coaches / trainers who will decide on the final rosters. No parents will be involved in the tryout process to avoid favoritism so we can create 2 equal teams (if necessary). Boys and girls teams will be separate. All teams Grade 3 will be in the Bergen Travel Basketball League with over 30 teams represented in Bergen County including Midland Park, Fair Lawn, Upper Saddle River, Mahwah, Paramus, Ho Ho Kus, Oradell, Hillsdale and Woodcliff Lake. All teams Grade 2 will be in the North Jersey Basketball 2nd Grade League

  2. Can my son or daughter play on both Glen Rock Travel Basketball team and a Goats team at the same time?

    • Yes. We will have control of the practice and game schedules in both programs so they will not conflict. 

  3. What is the difference between Glen Rock Travel Basketball and Goats?

    • The Glen Rock teams will be entered into the Bergen Travel Basketball League. Each team will play against other town travel teams that have been entered into the League from surrounding towns. The Goats teams are open to all players from all towns and play independent games in addition to being entered into the Hoop Heaven League playing against more competitive local AAU teams. 

  4. How many kids will be on each Glen Rock team?

    • 10 kids max will be placed on each of the teams. The League mandates that all players have equal playing time.

  5. Who will be coaching the teams?
