Marlton Chiefs Basketball - Mission Statement

Travel basketball is very competitive. The process for selecting players is competitive, and involves independent evaluators who rate the candidates based on various individual skill, and team play criteria. Our purpose is to prepare young men and women to compete for positions on the High School Basketball teams. Tryouts will begin in September. Teams are set by grade 4th grade through 8th grade. 

Once teams are formed, travel coaches have relatively broad discretion with respect to how they distribute minutes among their players. Practices are mandatory, not optional. Players not attending practices should not anticipate playing time in games and could be subject to dismissal from the team. 

The Marlton Travel Teams play in the South Jersey Basketball League (www.sjbbl.org) for the boys and in the Inter-County Basketball League (www.eteamz.com/icbl/) for the girls and generally travel less than an hour for away games.

Marlton Boys Basketball plans on sponsoring at least 4 boys travel teams this season and looking for 3 girls travel teams.  The number of teams sponsored by Marlton Basketball will be dependent on the number of candidates that tryout for the teams and their skill level. 

Good Sportmanship is essential. Coaches, players and parents must maintain good sportsmanship at all basketball events. If an issue does arise at a game, it needs to be addressed immediately with the Head Coach and if needed the Comissioner. 

Fee is approximately $400.00 will be required if a player makes the travel team to cover expenses (uniform costs, game referees, league fees, gym space, equipment, insurance etc.).  Travel players will register only for Travel not intown.
