Tryouts on Sunday, 6/15/19 were cancelled due to numbers.  There were no new registrations so teams have already been decided.  Grades 4-6 will not have cuts.  Teams will be posted towards the end of the week.


Q.) Why does LARA "cut" players in 7th & 8th but not in 4th - 6th?

A.) LARA believes it is important that every kid that wants to play basketball has the opportunity and there is no alternative in the younger grades outside of "traveling".  Once kids reach 7th & 8th grade they have the option to play "school ball".

Q.) $400.00 seems like a lot of money to play basketball and more than years past.

A.) LARA believes it is important to keep costs as low as possible.  We do not "make" money on registrations.  Any money that LARA makes generally comes from fundraisers and tournaments.  Basketball orders uniforms every 2 years.  2 years ago, with uniforms, the cost was $390.00.  This year is a uniform year and the cost has increased $10.00 to $400.00.  Next year if your child does not need a uniform the cost will be lower.  LARA does have a "payment plan" allowing you to make 3 payments so you do not have to pay the $400.00 at once.  LARA also has a scholarship program for all sports.

Q.) What are the next steps I need to take as a parent?

A.) As mentioned, teams will be posted on the website later this week with an email sent out stating this.  After that you will be contacted by either Matt Lasiuta (boys) or Amanda Farrell (girls) or your child's coach with further instructions.
