During the winter season, MPYBL offers players with higher skill levels an opportunity to participate in the countywide Fairfax County Youth Basketball League — commonly known as “Travel” or “Select”.


Player Eligibility

The travel teams are grade-based. This means anyone in the designated grade can participate as long as they are not more than 2 years older than others in that grade as of September 1st of that year.  For example, no player on the 6th grade team can be 13 as of September 1st of that year.

All players will be expected to provide documentation of their current grade (report card) along with a Walker ID once selected to a team.  Note that FCYBL also strictly limits the number of players in 4th grade or below who can be selected to the 10 and under teams.

Eligible MPYBL players must reside in Manassas, Manassas Park or Prince William County and, by FCYBL rules, are limited to our allocated zip codes (20109 -20110 -20111-20112- 20136) with two zip code exceptions allowed per team.

Try- Out Procedures

Once the Travel tryouts conclude and the teams are selected, those players who made the teams will be sent an invitation to participate in our program and directed to register and pay for the Travel program.  Travel Program costs, uniform costs, spirit wear costs and any other supplemental fees will be determined.

For those players who did not make the team, they will be notified and invited to sign up for our House program if they choose to do so. If someone signed up for House and made the travel team, they will be refunded that House registration fee.

Areas of Evaluation at Tryouts

During tryouts, players are being evaluated under several criteria.  Below are three of the more important areas of evaluation.

  1. Basic Basketball skills
  2. Athleticism
  3. Character/Work Ethic


If selected to an MPYBL team, the cost for the winter 2018-19 travel season is to be determined.  This fee covers the FCYBL registration fees, uniform fees, includes two practices/week from November-March, 13 total games and any additional administrative fees. Payment will be required before the player can participate in a practice or a game.
