HSJs is committed to providing upfront costs so families can fully weigh their commitment before signing. We want to ensure families are fully informed.
Frequently asked questions before we get started
> When will the season run?
Tryouts November 12 - 21st. Practices will begin after teams are formed, likely week of Nov 29th and run through WEVA Boys Regionals in March/April 2022. National teams will continue to compete at East Coast Championships over Memorial Day in Rochmond, VA. USA Boys Junior National Championships will conclude the first week of July for teams attending,
> When will tournaments be added?
We are planning to enroll teams in the CanAm (Jan) and BANE (Feb) bid qualifiers along with WEVA Regionals and local tournaments. This plan may be adjusted due to COVID and CDC and NYS guidelines.
> How much will the fee be?
The fees for the upcoming season are TBD. Payments will be due the 15th of every month starting in December.
> What if businesses close again due to the pandemic?
There are no refunds or credits this year.
If Hot Shots closes on the 14th you would not owe for the month. However, if Hot Shots closes the 16th there would be no refund or credit.
> What nights and times are practice?
There will be two practices per week Monday-Sunday. Times will be between 5:30-9:30pm weekdays and 9am-9:30pm.
> If a player did not try out, is he able to try out later?
Yes. Please contact Aaron Austin, club Director.
> How many are on the roster for each team?
We will not have more than 13 on a team but the ideal number is 10. We would keep more than 10 because of COVID restrictions, possible injuries and some players may elect to be practice-only players.
> If my son misses practice can he come to another age group’s time?
Based on the amount of kids on a team your son would need to make sure the practice is not full.
Tournaments assuming season goes on as planned
Now that HSJs has grown, we have the ability to offer both Regional and National packages for ages U12-18. We believe Regional players will also benefit from playing in the BANE tournament (Harrisburg, PA) which now offers Club and USA divisions, so we now offer Regional Plus as a third option for teams to consider.
Part of the team selection process will involve the team/families committing to a team program involving: your family, other families and coaching staff.
If a team commits to travel a $200 fee will be collected to cover these costs:
(We will need to order jerseys ASAP)
Ø Tournament entry fees
Ø Facility costs for practices, special sessions for 1-on-1 training
Ø Player strength training (coaches, facilities and equipment)
Ø New Equipment (ball bags, carts, dry erase boards, etc.)
Ø Coaches Stipends, Travel and Housing
Ø Player housing for over-night tournaments
Ø Administrative and miscellaneous costs
Cost does not include player travel nor does it cover travel or housing for parents.
