The Portland Travel Basketball Club provides various basketball related opportunities for girls and boys who seek competitive experiences and are qualified, both by ability and desire, to compete in a travel basketball league. Our teams play in the Shoreline Youth Basketball League which largely mirrors the teams in the CIAC Shoreline Conference. Our boys and girls teams compete in the 4th-8th Grade Divisions.
The goal of this competitive basketball program is to promote the sport of basketball as an avenue to help young people develop a positive self-image, a sense of pride toward the community, respect for others and good training skills and healthy habits. This competitive program places a particular emphasis on individual Basketball skills in a team atmosphere. All club activities are conducted in collaboration with the Portland Park & Rec. program(s).
Players are selected for teams based on evaluations from an annual open tryout. All tryouts are conducted under the direction of the Club, adhering to the policies currently set in place and approved by the Club's Board of Directors. For more information regarding the tryout process, please see our Tryouts page.
