To The Home Of Hibbing Boys Basketball
Hibbing Boys Basketball thanks you for your support of our program.
We have announced the 4th, 5th and 6th grade traveling teams for the 2015-2016 season.
Please click on the Traveling Teams tab on the left side of the Home Page.
We appreciate all of the participation we have seen for these grade levels in our first year of tryouts. We have numbers that we have not had for the past 20 years! That is a great sign! Because of the number of players we currently have, we wanted to maximize the amount of "court time" players get during games. That being said, we have rosters that do not exceed 9 players. Providing behavior, attendance, and coachability are not an issue, players will get even playing time until the last 5 minutes of every game. At that time, the players that give our team the best chance to compete will possibly be on the floor.
We would like to remind you to talk to your players about the importance of skill development and understanding of the game. Please try to get them to as many of our varsity games as possible throughout the season. Although we often like to stress the importance of winning, and compare the success of one team to another, we want to remember what is important. According to our philosophy, we feel that there is nothing more important in youth basketball than fundamental skill development. We feel that this is the catalyst that helps meet the #1 reason the players are there - to have fun! We do not feel that these teams have much bearing at all on future varsity playing time as these players are so young. Those that don't make certain teams because of current skill level or simply being new to the game are encouraged to work hard at the game during the season and at camp and all of our Skills Academy sessions that are held all summer long. We ask for your support in promoting this type of approach. Please consider the success of one grade level team the success of the entire program.
Practice for all teams at all grade levels begins on Monday, November 23rd.
6th Grade @ HHS Gym 3 (2:45 pm - 4:30 pm)
5th Grade @ HHS Gym 3 (6:00 pm - 7:30 pm)
4th Grade @ Lincoln Gym (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)
**In the case of a player injury (or any other reason team sizes get smaller during the season), players may be moved from one team to another. We may also take players from our 3rd grade program and move them up if the situation warrants it.
We need to find one or more people willing to take on the Concession Managers position for the Hibbing Boys Basketball program. We mostly need the concession stand manager to get the concession stand set up before each event and then shut down after. The food ordering and dibs scheduling will be done by others. This is a very important role in our program, so please give it your consideration. If interested, please contact me or any one of the board members. Thank you!!
JV SCHEDULE TBD
