This program is designed for skilled players, serious about developing their game and seeking a higher level of competition.
Burke's Select coaches are selected by the Burke Basketball Board after evaluation and are asked to coach a minimum of 2 consecutive years, likely
starting with 5th grade. Burke coaches are asked to maintain a welcoming relationship with local high school programs. “Blue” team coaches, which
usually play in the highest division, are required to be the main communicator to the other coaches in that specific gender and grade group.
Burke Basketball participates in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL) Visit the FCYBL for all rules, including grade and zip code restrictions Burke Basketball zip codes usually are: 20124, 22015, 22030, 22032, 22039, 22079, 22151, 22152, and 22153
Age group is determined by the player's grade (proof of grade and zip are required by the league) Usually two tryouts for evaluations and one "invite-only" tryout. Tryouts can start as early as the last weekend in September, we hope to have the schedule posted by 9/1/19. Each age group will have open gyms in September leading up to tryouts.
PRACTICE / TRAINING
Select teams practice two (2) nights a week. Burke Select is again partnered with Evolution Basketball and Ultimate Basketball Training (UBT) to provide skills training once a week. This is in addition to the two team practices a week. Skills training can cost up to $400 per month per child or $25-$50 per session. Burke Basketball increased Select base fees by only $40 per player for the entire season, which comes to $4 per training session!
Games are played at various locations throughout Fairfax County. Usually 1 game per week - can be on weekdays, but primarily on weekends.

Players do not need to purchase a jersey set if they already have one that fits. (Players who are new to a team should check to be sure that there are NOT jersey number conflicts on that team.)
