Heat Announces 7th and 8th Grade Tryouts

The Homewood Heat Basketball Club is pleased to announce Middle School (7th and 8th Grade) tryouts.

7th Grade Tryouts will be held on Sunday, February 3, 2013 (and February 10, if necessary) from 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Homewood High School, in the gym.

8th Grade Tryouts will be held on Sunday, February 3, 2013 (and February 10, if necessary) from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Homewood High School in the gym.


Players who wish to tryout for a team should arrive at least 15 minutes before tryouts begin, and bring with them a completed Player Application Form, and a Photo Media Release Form (including parent signature). Both forms can be found by clicking the link "FORMS" on the left side of this page, or by clicking this link: http://www.eteamz.com/homewoodheatbasketballclub/handouts/

There is no charge for participation in tryout sessions.

Coaches involved in the tryout session will make team selection decisions based on player abilities and skills as well as team needs. We will make every effort to place players on an appropriate team, however, completion of the tryout process does not guarantee placement on a team. We also attempt to base team selection decisions in compliance with AHSAA rules, including the 50% rule, but players should know what this rule means to their specific circumstance.We have posted a link on our “LINKS” page for answers to frequently asked questions about AHSAA rules and eligibility issues.

Our Player Expectations form can also be found on the "FORMS" page. This form is not required for tryouts but must be reviewed and signed by both player and parent/guardian no later than the team's first practice session. This document provides a clear list of our expectations by players and parents, and gives you a snapshot of the personality of our club.

Elementary age tryout dates will be announced in the near future. High School (Grades 9 and above) tryouts will be conducted the following completion of the ASHAA State Basketball Tournament.Times and dates will be announced soon, so please check the site frequently.

Thank you for your interest in the Homewood Heat Basketball Club.We look forward to seeing you.
