Burke Select Overview Winter 2020-2021

Welcome to Burke Select Basketball!


Commissioner, Boys & Girls: Ka'ala Rapoza,


This program is designed for skilled players, serious about developing their game and seeking a higher level of competition.

Burke's Select coaches are selected by the Burke Basketball Board after evaluation and are asked to coach a minimum of 2 consecutive years, likely
starting with 5th grade. Burke coaches are asked to maintain a welcoming relationship with local high school programs. ​ “Blue” team coaches, which
usually play in the highest division, are required to be the main communicator to the other coaches in that specific gender and grade group.


Burke Basketball participates in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL) Visit the FCYBL for all rules, including grade and zip code restrictions Burke Basketball zip codes usually are: 20124, 22015, 22030, 22032, 22039, 22079, 22151, 22152, and 22153


Age group is determined by the player's grade (proof of grade and zip are required by the league) Usually two tryouts for evaluations and one "invite-only" tryout.  Tryouts can start as early as the last weekend in September, we hope to have the schedule posted by the beginning of September.  Each age group will have open gyms in September leading up to tryouts.


We plan to continue the additional training with Evolution Basketball and Ultimate Basketball Training (UBT), but we will update the cost and practice nights closer to the start of the winter season. The following information is from the previous season.

Select teams practice two (2) nights a week.  Burke Select is again partnered with Evolution Basketball and Ultimate Basketball Training (UBT) to provide skills training once a week. This is in addition to the two team practices a week. Skills training can cost up to $400 per month per child or $25-$50 per session. Burke Basketball increased Select base fees by only $40 per player for the entire season, which comes to $4 per training session!


​Games are played at various locations throughout Fairfax County. Usually 1 game per week - can be on weekdays, but primarily on weekends.


This is the price for the previous season. We will update the costs for the 2020-2021 season in August.

*Base Fee: $240.00 includes two practices/week from NOV-FEB, 1 skill training session/week and 13 total games *Uniform Fee: $90.00 includes royal blue jersey and shorts, white jersey, reversible practice jersey and Burke travel warmup. Players do not need to purchase a jersey set if they already have one that fits.  (Players who are new to a team should check to be sure that there are NOT jersey number conflicts on that team.) 


Please feel free to reach out to any of the commissioners if you're interested in coaching, want to work with teams at Burke or have questions/concerns about the Burke Select program.
