Welcome To HRBBA

HRBBA is a volunteer-run organization offering boys in 4th - 8th grades a basketball program where they can develop skills and knowledge in a competitive atmosphere. Players must live or attend a school within the Hopkins School District 270 boundaries to participate.


COVID UPDATE

Per Gov. Walz's announcement today, the State of Minnesota will be pausing youth sports effective this Friday 11/20 at midnight.

HRBBA will cease all practice and game activity immediately.

There will be no practice on Thursday 11/19.

The Rogers and Coon Rapids Tournaments this weekend are postponed.

HRBBA RESPONSE
As a Board, we've been very open that our primary concern this season is the health and safety of our players and our HRBBA families. Any decisions made to this point - and continuing forward when we resume play - will always be made with that guiding principle in mind.

While we know there is disappointment that players will not be able to compete over the next four weeks, we also understand that the health of our surrounding community is important to each and every member of this HRBBA family.

NEXT STEPS
We will be in touch with the Associations scheduled to host tournaments over the next four weeks. Once we know their plans for rescheduling or cancelling, we will communicate with our HRBBA families.

During this four-week pause, we would like our players to continue to focus on improving their basketball skills at home. Players can be dribbling in the garage or basement, watching basketball games and videos online or on TV to improve their basketball IQ, running, stretching, etc.

While our players won't be able to be together in person, our plan is to look for ways for our teams to stay connected with their coaches and each other, virtually or via group messaging.

Follow us on Facebook and be sure to check back on the HRBBA website for updates.  We will continue to use these mass emails as a way to share information as well.

THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF THE HRBBA COMMUNITY
As HRBBA parents and guardians, we would appreciate your support in helping focus our young athletes on the positive basketball moments in their futures. We are truly all in this together, and we are hopeful that if we all act in the best interest of public health and safety now, we will be able to resume play very soon.

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to our Covid Task Force Team at covidtaskforce@hrbbabasketball.net and a Board member will respond.

STAY SAFE & HEALTHY HOPKINS!

2020-2021 UNIFORM INFORMATION

Earlier, we noted that the HRBBA Board opted to change up the uniform process this year, and to move to an every-other-year uniform change.

UNIFORMS - NEW PLAYERS
This year, players new to the league will need all three pieces:

  • Reversible Jersey
  • Shorts
  • Shooting Shirts (new 2020-21 design)  The cost of the shooting shirt is covered by HRBBA so the dollars show as $0.

UNIFORMS – RETURNING PLAYERS

  • Returning players will use last year's Reversible Jersey
  • Will use last year's shorts
  • Will select a size for a new Shooting Shirt (new 2020-21 design).  The cost of the shooting shirt is covered by HRBBA so the dollars show as $0.  You still will need to go thru the checkout process and add your player’s name and number.

IF THE JERSEY OR SHORTS NO LONGER FIT your returning player, you can purchase one or both pieces in the online store.

4th GRADE PARENTS, CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ORDERING PROCESS.

Team Store Link: https://www.nsapparelcompany.com/collections/hopkins-basketball

Orders must be placed by November 2nd to ensure we have apparel in time for our first tournaments.


IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR PLAYER'S SIZE

Please plan to stop by Northstar Lacrosse 774 Mainstreet Hopkins, MN 55343 on Thursday, Friday, or next Tuesday from 12-5PM to try on samples. They will not refund any mis-sizes.

Thanks for your cooperation as we work through these changes!
