    2021-22 Boys Basketball Schedule and Announcements


    Dear Parents and OTS boys basketball team tryout participants:

    The OTS Boys Basketball team will be holding tryouts for the 2021-22 season on: Monday, November 22nd until 5pm and Tuesday, November 23rd. 

    **On Tuesday, November 23rd, the SECOND AND LAST day of tryouts:**

    • 8th grade pickup: 4:45pm

    • 7th grade pickup: 4:55pm

    • 6th grade pickup: 5:00pm

    **The coach will talk to each player individually after the tryout.**  

    1. The team may include players from the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades with an A and B team.  Due to time and safety considerations and only one coach, tryouts will be held to limit the team to around 15-16 players (roughly 7-9 players on A team and 7-9 players on the B team).  The season will consist of approximately 12-14 games not including playoffs and conclude by the beginning of February. There will be no practice or games during winter break. 

    2. Being a member of a team is a commitment that builds responsibility, loyalty, and duty.  Attendance at scheduled practices and games is a part of that commitment.  Team members are expected to attend ALL practices.  The team will practice Monday – Friday from 2:45 - 4:15 or 5pm throughout the season on all non-game days. 

    3. Players MAY participate in SKI Club but may be asked to miss a ski session because of an important practice or game on Monday, 1/24 vs. Union Twp. 

    4. In order to participate in interscholastic sports, students are required to have a sports physical.  The school will provide physicals in the nurse’s office on Thursday, November 11th.  Only those potential participants who have completed the ALL necessary paperwork and have returned it to the nurse and Mr. Berg will be allowed to participate in the tryouts.  Each player should come prepared with water, shorts, t-shirt or jersey, and proper basketball sneakers.

    -Coach Berg

    The 2011-12 Tewksbury Boys Basketball Team finished 12 and 5 and lost the Clinton Township in the semi-finals of the A bracket tournament.  Tewksbury was down 15 points mid way through the 3rd quarter and stormed back to 1 point but could not come back for the win. It was one of my proudest coaching moments seeing this team work together to come back and to never give up hope.
    The B team finished the season with a 10 and 2 record and a very accomplished season.
    8th graders included Co-Captains Tyler Kroll and Nick Matukaitus, Andrew Gonzalez, Jake Twill, Luke Twill, John Gallagher, Billy Barish, Conor O'Sullivan, Peter Zezas, and Brian Jordan.
    7th graders included Chris Hyde, Winston Allen, Connor Brown, Mark Hodulik and Johnny Schaaf and 6th graders included Ryan Morash, David Kurzrock, and CJ Licata. 
    Congrats on great seasons for both teams.
    Coach Berg
