Vista Talons 2020-21 TRYOUTS Registration
Welcome! We are happy that your son is interested in trying out for the Vista Talons. Please view our About Us page to determine if this is the right program to consider. As a competitive AAU club that is designed for players to feed into Vista del Lago, our goal is to prepare boys to play at the high school level. If your son loves basketball but this program is not a good fit, we encourage him to look into the many other options available in the area.
Talons tryouts will be held on Monday, November 2nd, 2020 and Friday, November 6th, 2020 at All World Basketball in Rancho Cordova.
We strongly advise players to attend BOTH tryouts (11/2 & 11/6). This gives your son two chances to really show his skills and gives the coaches the most opportunities to see your son. While it is not mandatory to attend both days, most players will attend both and therefore have 2 opportunities in front of the coaches and evaluators. Teams will be selected after the second tryout and rosters will be posted shortly thereafter. (TBA)
Before tryouts, please be sure that you do the following:
1. Register online. Simply click the REGISTER button below and fill in the information required online. Make sure to confirm the age group grade for your son.
2. Pay the $20 tryout fee either online via the tryout page OR bring $25 cash (no checks) to the first tryout. Tryout fees cover the cost of gym rental and materials needed and are non-refundable.
3. Download and the print the waiver form. Complete the form and be sure to sign it and bring to day 1. CLICK HERE FOR FORM
NOTE: Players may not tryout without the waiver and tryout fee....so please make sure that your son has both for tryouts.
For tryouts, make sure that your player has:
1. Athletic shoes
3. A basketball with his name on it
4. No club wear (i.e., no Talons/FEBA/YBA, etc..shirts or uniforms)
5. Signed waiver form and cash if you didn't pay online
Finally, please be aware that tryouts are closed. You can help your player with registration and then return when tryouts are over for the day. Only players, coaches and evaluators will be allowed in the gym. To avoid distractions, parents should not be in the gym or lobby area while tryouts are going on. We appreciate your cooperation on this.
Teams will be formed after the second tryout is complete (Date TBA). Rosters will be posted by grade level on the website. If your player is selected to join the Talons you will be contacted by a coach. If your player is not selected, please encourage him to continue working hard at basketball if he really loves the game. There are numerous options for competitive and recreational basketball, as well as trainers and camps in the area. He can develop and try for the team again next year.
