Boys Travel Program (Winter 2017-18)
Program Summary
CYA Boys Travel Basketball Program (Winter 2017-18)

Program Summary

During the winter season, CYA offers those players with a higher skill level an opportunity to participate in the countywide Fairfax County Youth Basketball League ( -- commonly known as Travel or Select.  Travel coaches are re-selected each summer through an interview process.  Tryouts are held for travel teams in grades 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th in early October.  Players must attend at least 2 tryouts.  After tryouts, the coaches select 10-11 players per team.  The number of teams per age group is determined by the talent available at tryouts (with a maximum of 3 teams per age group).  Practice begins as soon as the teams are selected. This program requires a greater time commitment from participants for practice (3 hours per week) and games (1-2 per week).  The FCYBL season runs from mid-November through the beginning of March.  Most games are played at gyms across Fairfax County (often outside the Chantilly area) and in Falls Church, Arlington, or Alexandria.

Player Eligibility

The travel teams are grade-based rather than age-based as they were in the past. This means anyone in the designed grade can participate as long as they are not more than 2 years older than others in that grade as of September 1st of that year.  For example, no player on the 6th grade team can be 13 as of September 1st of that year.  There are no more age exceptions.  All players will be expected to provide documentation of their current grade (report card) along with a Walker ID once selected to a team.  Note that FCYBL also strictly limits the number of players in 4th grade or below who can be selected to the 10 and under teams.

Eligible CYA players must reside in Fairfax County and, by FCYBL rules, are limited to our allocated zip codes (22033, 22030, 20151, 20171, 22124, 20191 and 20120), with 2 zip code exceptions allowed per team.

Open Gyms 

In September, CYA will sponsor open gyms for each travel team grade (5th through 8th, which are open to everyone at the designated age.  The travel coaches will supervise the open gyms providing some skills training and running scrimmages.  These are an opportunity for kids to get warmed up for the travel tryouts and season.  Participation is strictly voluntary.

Open gym dates will be posted the first week of September on the CYA Basketball scheduling website:  Travel tryout dates will be posted shortly thereafter.

Registration Information

Online registration for the Travel tryouts for Winter 2017-18 season will begin in early September (accessed through the Registration tab on the main CYA web page,  You must register (at no cost) for Travel/AAU tryouts in order to participate in the tryouts and be invited to join a team if selected.

There is a new registration system in place for Travel players. Everyone who is interested in trying out for a Travel team must register (at no cost) for Travel/AAU tryouts.  (AAU tryouts occur in the Spring and use this same category). Once the Travel tryouts conclude and the teams are selected, those players who made the teams will be sent an invitation to participate in our program and directed to register for the Travel program at a total cost of $350.00 (which can be made in two payments). This will be the only registration fee for Travel.  There will not be a supplemental fee as in years past.  In addition, Travel players must purchase a travel uniform.  CYA will be using new uniforms this season so all players will be required to purchase one.  The cost is $75 for the reversible jersey and short and $33 for the shooting shirt.

For those players who did not make the team, they will be notified and invited to sign up for our House program if they choose to do so. If someone signed up for House and made the travel team, they will be refunded that House registration fee.
