Basketball tryouts begin Tuesday, October 17th. We will make two cuts and strive to have the teams picked by Friday, October 20th. Due to wrestling matches and no school Monday, tryout days are a little different this year. Please make sure to read the schedule.
Before trying out each player must have on file an up-to-date physical form with parent permission and a blue emergency card. Any student without a physical by Monday, October 16th, will not be allowed to try out.
The first area in which all students and parents should be aware, is the time commitment involved in competitive teams. Practices are every day and daily attendance is required. The majority of practices for B squad will be 7am-8:30am. The majority of A squad will be 4pm-5:30pm. Games will be after school, mostly on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We ask that all players come no earlier than 10 minutes before their practice time and all rides be waiting at the end of practice.
There is an athletic fee of $50.00 for those girls making the basketball team (due after team selections, but before first game). Holmes will have two teams, each made up of 10-14 players.
All tryouts will be for the coaches and players only. We ask that there be no parents or friends in the gym. This will eliminate distractions for everyone.
More information on practice times will be given to those students who make the team.
Good luck at tryouts.
