HP Middle School, 8th grade and younger
Tryouts for our 12U-14U program will begin on Tuesday, 11/2 (and Thursday, 11/4). We expect to field teams at 14U and 12U and would like to field a 13U team as well. Your age group determined by how old you are on 7/1/22 but we put 8th graders on 14U, 7th graders on 13U or 14U and 6th grade and younger on 12U (unless they are "old" in their grade).
The 14U team will play our full HP schedule. The 12U team will play 2 extra tournaments over the regional teams (maybe 3).
Middle School HP teams practice 2x/week (usually 2 weekdays of Tu/Wed/Th), play in 5 single day tournaments and are scheduled to play in at least 3 multiday tournaments.
12-1 team will have one weekday practice.
HP High School (9th grade and older, 15/16/17/18 age divisions)
Players that have not completed their high school season may not attend until they have finished playing! (don't worry about joining tryouts late)
Weekdays will go in 2 shifts (5p-7p or 7:15p-9:15p) and is dependent on the number of signups.
(tryout dates/times below subject to change)
(if your high school team is still playing you may not attend any tryouts, please don't panic... or even worry (but do register for tryouts so we know you'll be coming). Just attend the next tryout after either your team is eliminated or wins the state championship.
Our High Performance program, one of the most competitive in New England, comprises 1-4 teams at each age group from middle school through seniors
Our teams are the top ranked in Connecticut (usually our teams ranked 2nd, 3rd and 4th are ranked higher than the top team on other area clubs). Our 2021 18 and under team won every tournament they entered (well, except the USAV Junior Nationals) and our 16 and under team finished 3rd in Boston in the top division, won the Winterfest, Springfield Spikefest, the Tristate Champions League and had our best finish ever at the USAV Junior National Championships. We sent 3 teams to the AAU Junior National Championships and 3 teams to the USAV Junior Nationals.
Are you new to Husky and worried about being overlooked? Don't be, we give all players that attend our tryouts a fair opportunity to be evaluated and selected.
Our tryouts are designed to evaluate every player on objective standards (vertical jump, touch, scores assigned due to proficiency in passing, setting, serviing) and subjective standards (hustle, leadership, court sense). We consider all these items prior to selecting our teams.
Each team represents a different commitment level (and travel burden) classified by:
It is possible that we could have more than one team at any given level (so we have had seasons with 2 "17 National" teams or 2 "16 New England" teams). We will field as many teams at a level as we feel can be competitive.
Teams will practice at least 2 weeknights (HP National teams will have a 3rd practice each week starting in 2021-2022). All HP teams will participate in Monday HP play nights on 12/6, 12/13 and 12/20.
