HIGH SCHOOL BOYS EVALS - UPDATE

To All HSB Basketball Players

The HSB evaluations will be done using the following schedule:

•  Last Name A-D:    Monday,  12/1, 6:30-7:30.   Abbot School

•  Last Name E-I:     Monday,  12/1, 7:30-8:30.   Abbot School

The evaluations are very important to our efforts to have balanced teams, so if you have a conflict and cannot make your assigned slot, please try hard to make one of the other slots.  Seniors, let us know if there's someone you want to be teamed with. While we can't guarantee we can accommodate those requests, we'll try our best. 

Also, please let us know if there are parents willing to coach this year.  We're looking to fill 16 teams, have your parents email Tom Coppinger if interested.

 

We will also have a sign-up sheet at evals for those who want to score/run the clock.

 

Looking forward to a successful 2014/2015 season

All participants will be in the main gym for the duration of the night.  A registration table with an adult will be set up at the entrance to the Main Gym, but all other entrances will be locked.  Babysitters will escort the kids to the bathroom and back, and water and Gatorade will be available.  Your child may bring snacks and/or dessert with them, and the bags will be kept by the wall near the registration desk.  There will be access to the trainer’s room in case of any bumps or bruises, and we will call you immediately for anything deemed more serious.  If your child is participating in a car-pool for drop-off or pick-up, please make sure you include that information in your registration form.  IF YOUR CHILD HAS ANY SPECIFIC MEDICAL NEEDS OR ANY CONDITIONS THAT STAFF SHOULD KNOW ABOUT, PLEASE EMAIL THIS INFORMATION TO RUSSELL COWARD AT .

 

COST:

$25 for one child or $20 dollars if part of a Group of Friends
