Multiple Teams · BJHS Freshman Boys Basketball Tryouts

Home of the 2017 7A Area 8 Champions


To prospective Players/Parents,

            The Bob Jones basketball staff will hold boys basketball try-outs on April 24th -25th from 4:00-5:30 pm in the main gym on the campus of Bob Jones High School. Please read the following information regarding try-outs.

            One of the hardest things for coaches and players to go through is try-outs. Our program will strive for excellence both academically and athletically. However, there are many factors that are involved in the selection of our basketball teams. Try-outs can be both exciting and stressful. However, basketball tryouts are necessary when there are more players than a team can feasibly keep on its roster. Coaches do not like to cut players. Certainly, players don’t like being forced to prove they are worthy of being on a basketball team. Worst of all, players are disappointed when they don’t make the team.

             Our preference is that we grow players from freshmen, incorporating them in our system and letting the best of the best compete for inclusion on the roster at all levels…freshmen, JV, and Varsity. Therefore, we will put the best talent on the floor representing Bob Jones High School.

 On the first day of try-outs, each prospective player must turn in:

  1. A current copy of a physical form completed by a doctor
  2. Insurance waiver form

The 2017 summer basketball teams will be posted on the website and at Discovery Middle School gym doors with practice times and dates the following day after try-outs are completed. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
