2018 Player Registration and General Information
The Erie Saints is a travel basketball organization that was formed in 1995. Our purpose is the continued development of girl’s basketball in NW Pennsylvania. We stress skill development in practice sessions and participate in regional tournaments that provide the best competition available. We are extremely proud to be part of the phenomenal success that has been achieved by area high school teams. Many of our former players (over 80 since 1996) have also earned college scholarships. For the 2018 season, the Saints plan to have separate teams for 9th Grade and 10th/11th Grade.
Team SizeEach Saints team will have a maximum roster of 10 players.
The Saints follow the AAU age eligibility guidelines (which generally align the age groups with the school grade of the athletes). The coach for each age group will contact all registered athletes to advise them of the exact dates, times and locations for the try outs.
Try outs will be held in March. The exact dates and locations will be communicated to all registered athletes, as they are determined. All players try out for the team (former players are not guaranteed a spot on the team).
Games / Tournaments
The tournament season will run from April through July. Each team will participate in 7 tournaments.
The tournaments (generally held on Saturday and Sunday) are in Pennsylvania and neighboring states (Ohio, NY, and West Virginia). For the older age group (10th/11th Grade) we also travel to college exposure tournaments (possible locations - Washington DC, Cincinnati, Louisville, KY). A parent volunteer for each team coordinates all arrangements for family lodging. Car-pooling and room sharing to reduce cost are very common.
PracticePractices are usually held 2 times per week (as scheduled by the coach).
