All players who what to play on an HRBBA Travel Team are required to attend their tryout session.

Tryouts will take place over a 2-day period in which players are participating 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.
