Unfortunately, we are not fully confident that our flagship winter season league, Gold Crown, will be played as typically undertaken. Gold Crown officials, like the rest of us, are remaining flexible and are committed to offering a Fall League and possible tournaments throughout the winter/spring basketball season. Accordingly, we want to provide our youth players the opportunity to be placed on one of our Warrior grade level teams so that they are able to play in any local events that the coach and families choose to participate in.
While we are unsure whether Gold Crown will offer a league this winter, we still wish to form Arapahoe Youth Feeder teams that can participate in various competitive offerings in the form of tournaments or alternate leagues.
As we are not able to utilize the AHS Gym at this time, we have made arrangements to hold Youth Team Tryouts at the Gold Crown Field House. The schedule will be as follows:
(Friday, September 11)
7th grade, friday, 7:30pm - 8:30pm, encouraged to arrive 20 minutes early
8th grade, friday, 8:30pm - 9:30pm, encouraged to arrive 20 minutes early
(Saturday, September 12)
4th grade, saturday, 11am - 12pm, encouraged to arrive 20 minutes early
5th grade, saturday, 11am - 12pm, encouraged to arrive 20 minutes early
6th grade, saturday, 12pm - 1pm, encouraged to arrive 20 minutes early
There will be socially distanced groups (20 kids to a court) with cleaning going on in-between sections. As an additional safety measure, GC Employees will take all participants' temperatures as we enter the facility. Adults and players need to wear masks during the tryout. Unfortunately there will be limited ability for parents to attend, if any availability at all. We will clarify attendance from adults as the event approaches. Each group will tryout for approximately 1 hour.
Please let us know if you intend on playing this fall/winter by filling out this link with your info. We will be unable to accept walk-ups during tryouts due to the Covid environment. We also will not have a makeup date for tryouts so if you know you will not be able to make your time work, please send us an email at email@example.com (while still filling out the form) and we can talk about a possible solution.
We are very excited to provide our community with competitive youth team tryouts and look forward to seeing your athletes in September.
