(updated for 2019-2020)
HP High School (15/16/17/18, 9th grade and older)
High School players that are still playing in the CIAC state tournament may not begin their tryout until their season is over (don't worry, there's no penalty to you for missing the early tryouts!)
Thursday, 11/21, 6:30-9p
Final makeup days on Sunday, 11/24 and Monday, 11/25
Our High Performance program, one of the most competitive in New England, comprises 1-4 teams at each age group from high school freshman through seniors (we also create a pre-HP team or two comprising 7th and 8th grade girls each year).
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). In 2018 our 16's was the New England Regional Champion, our 15's team (freshmen) played 16's and was ranked higher than all other CT 16's teams. Our 18's and 17's have consistently been the top ranked teams (by far) in Connecticut. We constantly challenge our teams with top competition that other clubs don't face. Come play with and against the best!
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:
National (highest commitment, travels around the country, season runs until late June / early July)
Northeast (very high commitment, travels as far as Philadelphia, season runs until the end of May)
New England (high commitment, travel is in New England only, season runs until the end of May)
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.
Practices will either be two week nights or Sunday and a weeknight (most teams are two weeknights only rarely does an HP team have a Sunday practice).
