About Pelham Travel Basketball
Pelham Travel Basketball (known as 'Pelham Pride') is an independent, non-profit organization established to provide the youth of Pelham, NH with the opportunity to learn the game of basketball and participate in a highly competitive environment. Pelham Travel Basketball organizes boys & girls teams in grades 4-8 and stresses good sportsmanship, teamwork, and commitment.
Playing in a competitive environment requires that interested children be in good physical condition. The season typically runs from November to March and can involve as many as 40 games played against towns in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Games are played mostly on weekends, but can be played mid-week. Each team usually practices once or twice a week, but schedules can vary. Tryouts/Evaluations/Roster Selection typically occurs the last weekend of September. Practices usually start in October, depending on team needs. League season starts after Thanksgiving, but teams may participating in pre-season tournaments in the month of November.
Registering for the program does not ensure participation. Tryouts and/or evaluations may be held based on the number of registrations received and available roster spots. Typically, tryouts are held at the younger age levels. Individual coaches are solely responsible for scheduling tryouts (if needed) and selecting players. All parents of players are required to sign a Code of Conduct and Zero Tolerance Policy. There will be a yearly participation fee and players are responsible for purchasing any uniform needs. In addition, parents will be asked to assist with fundraising activities and to volunteer during the annual Christmas Holiday Tournament.
