All players who want to play HRBBA Traveling Basketball are required to attend their grade's tryout session.

Tryouts take place over 2 days in which players will participate in a variety of basketball drills and scrimmages.

Evaluations are conducted by a combination of coaches, board members, and 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.

During evaluations we ask that you refrain from requesting information or soliciting opinions about players, or team assignments, from coaches and independent evaluators.

What to Bring
Players should wear

  • shorts,
  • reversible jersey blue/white (or a wear a white or blue t-shirt and bring the other color) to allow each player to switch teams when playing 5 on 5, but not exchange pinnies during tryouts. 
  • basketball shoes.

Players will be identified by their tryout number which will be provided on arrival at tryouts.

1. Registration must be completed online prior to tryouts
