Boys pre-season Clinics

Boys pre-season Clinics

The Simsbury Travel Basketball Club is happy to present a pre-season opportunity for your son to sharpen and hone his skills prior to tryouts.

The clinics will be run by Greg Stillman, present SHS head basketball coach and Steve Patrina, former SHS head basketball coach, and assisted by the members of the present Simsbury High School basketball program.

The clinics will consist of drills and scrimmage that mirror in many ways the tryout process. These clinics are optional and in no way have any bearing on the tryouts and are intended solely for the betterment of your son.

A nominal fee of $5 dollars a night will be collected at the door to help offset the costs of running this. Looking forward to a great season!

Club Information


The Simsbury Travel Basketball Club provides an organized youth basketball program for Simsbury residents in grades 4 through 8. Teams compete against teams from towns in the Hartford, CT area with most games scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays. Teams are formed in the fall based on tryouts. Practice usually begins in November. Games usually begin in December and continue into late February or early March.


  • Teach players the basic skills of basketball
  • Build confidence in each player and to bring out their individual talent for the game
  • Teach sportsmanship and fair play through a team sport
  • Provide an opportunity for each player to participate and have fun
  • Enforce team concepts and to enhance knowledge of the sport
  • Teach players the responsibility of each team member to try their best and to encourage their teammates to do the same
  • Prepare players for a higher level of competition and commitment to continue to play the sport at the next level.

  • Minimum playing time 


Check the Weekly Schedule menu item on the left for weekly games and practice times.  During the season, teams typically practice twice a week on week nights for 90 minutes.  Games are usually on weekends.  Our teams play in the CBTBL, CGBL and NCC leagues. Click the LEAGUES tab on the left column for league web sites.


More infomation about Simsbury Travel Basketball  Expectations and Tryouts can be found in the Parents tab. Online Registration for tryouts opens up in August, tryouts take place in October.  There is no fee to try out. 


All STBC Coaches must pass a background check, take the CDC Concussion training course and review the CDC information on staph infections for athletes.


The cost to participate on a team for the upcoming season has not been determined yet. Last year it was $315 per player, we expect the cost will be similar this season. Costs include gym rental & custodial fees, game officials, league fees, website fees and team equipment.  The fee does not include the cost of  a uniform - approximately $75. Individual teams may choose to participate in activities that could require additional costs.
