Tryout Information & Process

2017-18 HRBBA Tryouts

What: 2017-18 HRBBA Tryouts

When: September 23-24, 2017

Where: Eisenhower Community Center, 1001 MN-7, Hopkins, MN 55305

Please arrive at the Registration Check-In time on both Saturday and Sunday to confirm all paperwork is completed and receive the player tryout number.


All players who what to play on a HRBBA Travel Team are required to attend both tryout sessions. Tryouts will take place over a two-day period of time in which players are participating in a variety of basketball drills and scrimmages.

Evaluations are conducted by a combination of coaches, board members, and independent evaluators with a deep understanding of basketball. Our goal is to be impartial, professional and as fair as possible by placing players based on skill level, ability, athleticism and attitude. Not all players will be selected for a team.

What to Bring
Players should wear shorts, t-shirts and basketball shoes. Players should NOT wear uniforms from previous years or jerseys with their names on them. Players will be identified by their tryout number.

1. Registration must be completed online prior to tryouts
2. Volunteer Check for $200 written to HRBBA

(Your check will be destroyed after completing your required shifts. For more information on volunteer requirements please visit our website or click here.)

3. Copy of birth certificate (unless previously on file with HRBBA)
4. Water bottle
5. PLEASE DO NOT BRING A BASKETBALL

Required Parent Meeting
There will be a brief parent meeting on Saturday at the beginning of each tryout session in the Wetlands Cafe.  All parents are expected to attend.

Tryout Time Conflicts
We understand players may have a conflict during their tryout time. In order to select teams to the best of our ability, it is very important that players attend tryouts with their grades on both days.

In the event a player is unable to attend on one or both days, please contact Joan Frenz at jfrenz@davidfrenz.com by Friday, September 15.

Injured Players
Players who are injured and unable to participate in tryouts, but will be healthy for the season should contact Joan Frenz at jfrenz@davidfrenz.com by Friday, September 15. Injured players will be evaluated to the best of our ability. These players should register for tryouts and attend the parent meeting on the first day.

Extended Evaluations for Grades 4 & 5

To better determine skill level at the younger grades, HRBBA conducts extended evaluations (in addition to our regular tryouts) for 4th and 5th grade players.  Please see our 4th & 5th Grade Evaluation page for information and session dates and times.
