When are Crispin Basketball Spring Club tryouts?

Crispin Basketball Spring Club tryouts are typically held in January and February. For 2021, they will be held on Tuesday, March 2 and Thursday, March 4 for 5th – 7th grade.

How do I register for Crispin Basketball Spring Club Tryouts?

To register for Crispin Basketball Spring Club tryouts please see the registration links above.

How much do Crispin Basketball Spring Club tryouts cost?

Tryouts are free, but we ask everyone to be registered before arrival.

When will I hear if my player made a Crispin Basketball Spring Club team?

Teams are typically announced 2 weeks after the final tryout date.  Once the rosters have been announced, players have about 3 days to confirm they would like to play on the team and order their uniform.  The 1st payment will be taken at registration.  Registration must be completed within those 3 days.

How many teams will you have?

That depends on numbers we have for tryouts.  We would like to have 1 team at the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade level for boys.  If we cannot field a team at an age group, we won’t run a program at that age group.

How many players will be on each team?

Each team will have 10 players and 2 practice players.

Will you have girls’ teams this year?

No, we will only be running teams for boys this year.

How much does Crispin Basketball Spring Club cost?

Different ages have different costs due to the number of tournaments, referee fees, training fees, etc. Below is an estimate of cost:

Development Group- $225

5th and 6th Grade – $450 ($300 for practice player)

7th and 8th Grade- $650 ($400 for practice player)

Does Crispin Basketball Spring Club give any financial support?

Yes. Financial needs must be requested to Erin Crispin (erin@crispinbasketball.com) before the start of the season.

Does Crispin Basketball Club offer a payment plan?

Yes, we do offer a payment plan.  The first payment is due at registration and the second payment will be taken at the halfway point.

How do I pay?

Each club member must sign up on our website’s platform through League Apps.  There you will be able to manage your player’s calendar and your payments.  Each player will have payments automatically withdrawn from their credit card when the payment is due (first payment due upon registration).  If you do not use a credit card or prefer not to use a credit card for our club, you will have to make arrangements with Erin Crispin (erin@crispinbasketball.com) before the first payment is due.

What happens if my player quits or get injured?

We offer no refunds as we budget for gear, gym time, coaches’ salaries and tournaments ahead of time.  All payments must be fulfilled.  If a suitable replacement player (approved by the club) can be found, payments can be transferred to that player.

When do I purchase my uniform?

The uniform and extra gear will be available to purchase online through MBM Sports once the teams have been announced. You will receive an email with further directions on how to purchase gear.  The uniform must be purchased 3 days after the rosters have been announced.

Are uniforms provided? 

A private store will be available for the team after the rosters are announced.  All gear will be ordered through this store within 3 days and then delivered to a practice before the start of tournaments.

What gear is included? What is the cost?

The pieces that must be purchased are at least 1 jersey, 1 pair of shorts and 1 long sleeve performance shirt.  You will not be able to check out without those items in your basket.  The cost is approximately $50.

Can I purchase extra gear?

Yes, you can purchase as many extra pieces of the uniform, as well as additional CB gear (short sleeve performance t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants) for your player or family members that you would like.  This is the only time to purchase gear during the season.

What color are the jerseys, shorts and performance shirts?

The colors will all be in the navy, white, charcoal and orange families.

Who will be my player’s coach?

Each team will have a head coach that will be in charge of their team only.  Possibilities of the head coaches can be found on our Biographies page. Please note: Joe Crispin does not coach every team, nor will he be at every practice.

How long is the Crispin Basketball Spring Club season?

The season is a different length for different age groups.  Below is an estimated timeline:

5th and 6th grade: late March- early May (about 8 weeks)

7th and 8th grade: late March- early June (about 10-12 weeks)

When and where are Crispin Basketball Spring Club practices?

Most practices will be held during the week at Total Turf.  Practices may also be held at a local outdoor facility.  Practices are usually 2 times per week for 5th and 6th grade and 3 times per week for 7th and 8th grade (may change due to tournament play the prior weekend) and run about 1.5 hours.  Typically two teams will practice together.

How many tournaments will Crispin Basketball Spring Club participate in?

The 5th and 6th grade teams will play in approximately 3 tournaments. The 7th and 8th grade teams will play in approximately 5 tournaments.  Specific tournaments will be given to the teams ASAP.

Where are tournaments held?

Most tournaments are held within 60-90 minutes of Glassboro, NJ. Occasionally we may travel for an overnight tournament for the 7th and 8th grade teams.
