Travel Team Assessment Process

The 2015 spring registration is currently underway via the NCA website and we are looking forward to another exciting season.

As you may have noticed within this year’s registration process, the travel team assessment fee has been removed.  Those funds were previously applied directly to costs incurred from weekend gym rentals and custodial fees.  This year the travel team selection process will not involve a single assessment date.  Instead, we will be incorporating the player assessments over the first (2) weeks of Academy workout sessions.  That allows each player more than (1) evaluation opportunity, providing a greater overall assessment benefit. 

It is important to know that “all” NCA members will attend those initial (4) Academy workouts together.  The workouts will be at Montgomery H.S. and Slater M.S., on Monday & Wednesday nights.  Effort will be made to insure that players considering a travel team will be competing against each other.  Travel teams will be identified and selected within that (2) week (6-hr) process. Remaining players will continue with the Monday/Wednesday Academy program at a selected gym.

First 2-week NCA Workout Recap:
All NCA players will attend Mon/Wed Academy workouts on 3/9, 3/11, 3/16, 3/18.  Gym locations & Grade levels for those workout dates will be as follows:

Montgomery High School -  
9th, 10th & 11th Grades          6:30 to 8:30 pm

Slater Middle School –            
3rd, 4th and 5th Grades          6:00 to 8:00 pm

Maria Carrillo High School
6th, 7th and 8th Grades          7:00 to 9:00 pm

Note: All players should arrive 15 minutes early for check in and to properly prepare for evening workouts.  Thanks!

After the (2) weeks of Academy workouts, coaches will make Travel Team assignments.  The number of teams will be formulated around player abilities and available certified NCA coaches.  Additional fees (beyond the initial Academy registration) will be required for players selected to a travel team in order to offset tournament costs.
