The American Basketball Association (ABA) Team Trouble, which played at the Stockton Arena last season, is hosting tryouts for their team later this summer and on in to the fall. Team Trouble is owned and operated by James Paul and Jovan Banston, working along with their crew to keep the team in the league.
Last season the team reached the postseason and found success by advancing into the second round. Team Trouble is hosting three summer and fall tryouts for aspiring players. Each tryout will be held at Calvary Presbyterian Church at 2343 Country Club Boulevard in Stockton. The cost of each tryout is set for $125 and is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night.
The first of three tryouts is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 26. Players will have a second opportunity to try out for the team on Sunday, Sept. 9 and the third tryout is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 16.
Team Trouble does have a compensation package available for its players. The ABA season tips off in November. Team Trouble is the only local team in the historic league that began in the 1960s. The Stanislaus Superkats, who played in several locations last season including Oakdale, have since relocated to Sacramento.
