Q: What will HHB team players wear for tournaments?
A: All players will receive a reversible jersey and a single sided pair of shorts. This is included in the cost.
Q: What type of player are you looking for the club teams?
We are looking for players who have a general knowledge of how to play the game and are willing to compete and have a desire to constantly improve. We seek out players that are great teammates and who are teachable. We want Hoop Hunter Hustlers to constantly push each other with healthy competition.
Q: How are your coaches chosen to join Hoop Hunter?
A: Our coaches our chosen through careful consideration and recommendations from other coaches around the area as well as coaches already connected to Hoop Hunter. We choose people that we know will push your child to get better on and off the court in a positive manner. We are driving to build better basketball players as well as human beings. Our coaches each have prior basketball and coaching knowledge that they bring to the table.
Q: Is HHB a competitive club team program?
A: We are always seeking basketball players that are looking to develop their skills at a competitive level. From the moment tryouts start we will be fostering a competitive environment to better strengthen our players.
Q: How is playing time given out?
A: Playing time is EARNED. All players will have an equal opportunity to gain and lose more playing time by attending practices and games as well as working extremely hard while they are on the court. We want players that are putting in the extra time to get better and get more quality playing time on the court. This is a competitive team and playing time will not just be handed out. Playing time is also continually changing dependent on the situation in the game as well as how the athlete is performing in the games and at practice. Players must be great teammates and must lift each other up with praise.
Q: Can I help coach my son/daughter’s team if they make it?
A: No. While we appreciate your desire to help we are a business and a family that has strict policies on coaching. We want your child to get used to listening to their coach while at practices, so in game situations the only voice they are listening to is their coaches. We love the support you give your athlete, but you are only a support system as well as a fan for your child as well as THE ENTIRE REST OF THEIR TEAM
