Key Information for 2023-24

Eligibility Guidelines
MYAS (the governing body for youth sports) has eligibility guidelines that were updated last year for participation in traveling basketball. School attendance is now the primary factor when determining which association an athlete is eligible to play. 

Your athlete is eligible to play for HRBBA if they meet at least one of these requirements: 

  • They attend a school (public, private or charter) in the Hopkins School District boundary (e.g., Gatewood, Meadowbrook, Good Shepherd, Eagle Ridge Academy, etc.) or the International Spanish Language Academy.*
  • They attend a private school (e.g., Benilde) or charter school that is outside of the Hopkins boundary, and their home address on file with the school is within the Hopkins School District boundary.
  • They attend a home or online school and their home address on file with the school is within the Hopkins School District boundary.

If your player does not meet the eligibility requirements above, please contact to discuss the MYAS Player Transfer and Residency Exception process, as detailed on the MYAS website. Please begin this process now to receive MYAS approval in time for team selection. 

*Exception: MYAS will allow players who attend the International Spanish Language Academy elementary school to play for HRBBA without filling out a waiver, regardless of home address. 

New Documentation Requirements

During the registration process, you will be asked to upload documentation to comply with the new MYAS guidelines. Players must submit this paperwork before being able to practice or compete.

All players must submit a copy of their birth certificate during the registration process. This includes returning players.

Players who attend a public, private, or charter school within the Hopkins School District boundary or the International Spanish Language Academy must provide a copy of a document that lists the player’s name and the school that they attend. 

  • Examples: screenshot from Infinite Campus, copy of a report card, school-issued ID, etc.

Players who attend a private, charter, online, or home school that resides outside of the Hopkins School District boundary are required to provide proof of residency in the Hopkins School District boundary.

  • Any documentation from the school that shows the player’s name and address is sufficient. (HRBBA can no longer accept a driver’s license or utility bill to prove residency.) 

Registration Costs
3rd Grade = $450
4th Grade = $550
5th through 8th Grade = $675

Please note: Registration fees maintain the quality of our program and include player uniforms and all tournament registration fees (including state). Examples of additional costs include the rental of gym space for practices, referees and EMTs for our tournament, and appropriate insurance coverage. The program continues to fund over half the average cost for each player to play. 

Payment Plan
When you register, you may select to pay in full or you may select to utilize a payment plan. If you choose the payment plan option, 50% of your total bill will be due immediately and 50% will be due on November 1st, 2023. Players must be paid in full to compete in the first tournament.

Volunteer Deposit
Due to some changes in the Sports Engine payment system, we have to go back to taking a $200 check for a volunteer deposit at tryouts this year. As noted above, once volunteer hours are fulfilled, the check will be destroyed. For volunteer hours that are not completed, the remaining deposit checks will be cashed on March 1, 2024.

As a reminder, all families are required to work an average of 10-12 volunteer hours per player during our Hopkins Royal Rumble winter tournament scheduled for January 13-14, 2024.

Players who qualify for free- and reduced- school meals are eligible for a reduction in HRBBA registration costs. Although all students receive free school lunches this year, families still need to complete the application for Educational Benefits with their school to receive reduced rates for athletics and other activities.

If your player qualifies, please email HRBBA Registration Coordinator ( We will work with you to approve your request and give you a discount code to use when you register online. 

Multi-Child Discount

Families that have 3 or more players signing up for HRBBA can contact to apply for a discount on the 3rd/4th/5th players signing up for that family.

  • Teams will participate in the new MYAS 3rd Grade League with two “double header” games on five Saturdays. 
  • Teams will also play in up to two additional travel-style tournaments in the Metro area, dates TBD (likely in January or February). 
  • Teams will practice twice weekly from November through February.
  • 10’ hoops, 27.5” basketballs 

  • All players will receive a warm-up shooting shirt to keep, and for games will wear HRBBA jerseys that will be returned at the end of the season. 
  • If you are interested in being a parent coach, please reach out to Chris Long at

All registered 3rd graders will go through tryouts on Oct. 7 and 8 and we will form as many teams as possible. Visit our Program Overview page (link below) for more information, including tentative schedule and rules and regulations.
