Cooling-Off Period and Player-Specific Feedback
We recognize that this process can be filled with emotion. Accordingly, following the official announcement of teams, the organization will observe a cooling-off period of two days (48 hours). During this time, HRBBA will not respond to questions about tryouts, beyond confirming what team a player was selected for. Following the cooling-off period, if requested, HRBBA may provide player-specific feedback about the tryout. To protect privacy, HRBBA will not share any notes from tryouts on other players.
Communication will be key again this year. If you are interested in serving as a Team Parent for your player's team, please contact Amanda Kriz.
Team Selection – Grades 3 through 8
Team selection for grades 3 through 8 will be posted following tryouts. As soon as they are posted, a communication will be sent stating that they are available for viewing. Players selected for teams will be posted by their tryout number, first name and the first initial of their last name. Players who are not selected will be notified by email to their registration email address.
