FYBBC tryouts provide the player with up to 150 minutes to showcase his talent in both individual skills as well as game situations.
Talent evaluation is done by a neutral committee that may consist of high school coaches, former program coaches, and other qualified individuals with experience coaching youth or high school sports.
At the end of the 1st tryout session, most players will be asked to come back for the 2nd session. Players who are evaluated as being in need of substantial skill development before playing in the FYBBC select program, may not be asked to return for the 2nd tryout session. This is done so the 2nd session can be spent evaluating the top players, thereby ensuring that the best teams are built at each grade level.
