Welcome to Andover Boys Travel Basketball

Andover Boys Travel Basketball is a program for players in grades 4-8 in the Andover Community that wish to experience an increased level of competitive basketball!

Players go through a tryout process and are placed on teams that correspond with their skill level.  Our program is about both skill development on the court as well as personal development.  We strive to develop players with strong commitment to hard work, positive attitudes and sportsmanship!

2021-2022 Trophy Case!

Updated Covid 19 Guidelines (1/3/2022)

ATBB is following the recommendations from the CDC in regards to Covid policy.  Here is the most recent recommendation as of January 2022.

Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation for the public. People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.

Additionally, CDC is updating the recommended quarantine period for anyone in the general public who is exposed to COVID-19. For people who are unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, CDC now recommends quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days. Alternatively, if a 5-day quarantine is not feasible, it is imperative that an exposed person wear a well-fitting mask at all times when around others for 10 days after exposure. Individuals who have received their booster shot do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.  For all those exposed, best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure. If symptoms occur, individuals should immediately quarantine until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.

Isolation relates to behavior after a confirmed infection. Isolation for 5 days followed by wearing a well-fitting mask will minimize the risk of spreading the virus to others. Quarantine refers to the time following exposure to the virus or close contact with someone known to have COVID-19. Both updates come as the Omicron variant continues to spread throughout the U.S. and reflects the current science on when and for how long a person is maximally infectious. These recommendations do not supersede state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, nor do they apply to healthcare workers for whom CDC has updated guidance.

Data from South Africa and the United Kingdom demonstrate that vaccine effectiveness against infection for two doses of an mRNA vaccine is approximately 35%. A COVID-19 vaccine booster dose restores vaccine effectiveness against infection to 75%. COVID-19 vaccination decreases the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. CDC strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 5 and older and boosters for everyone 16 and older. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our communities.

2021-22 Registration and Season Info

We've been busy preparing for the upcoming 2021-22 travel basketball season. Registration for tryouts and the season is now open! New for this year is the opportunity to get some extra court time before tryouts.

We will be running some training and small-sided games (3-on-3, 4-on-4) for those that register early. These sessions will run on Sunday evenings in August. These sessions can really benefit the younger players by preparing them for tryouts and let them get a taste of travel basketball.  For the older grades it is a good chance to knock off any rust and get back in basketball mode. These sessions are included at no cost to any player that has registered.

Tryout dates are set for Sunday, September 26 and Sunday, October 3.
