Thank you to everyone that came and tried out last week, we had a great turn out and are looking forward to the upcoming season. Rosters have been posted to each team’s page and players will be notified via email this week by their coach with information about an upcoming parents meeting. If you have not received an email by Wednesday, or did not include complete contact information when registering please email us at everetthoopclub@gmail.com.

Unfortunately not all players that tried out for this season made a team. If there was not an opportunity on a team this year doesn’t mean there won’t be one in future years.  We would encourage those that don’t participate in our program this year to seek other playing opportunities (such as the Everett Boys & Girls Club or personal training) to continue their quests to become better players.  If you need guidance in this area, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.

Registration Requirements and Expectations

There is no charge for participating in tryouts for the Everett AAU program.  The Everett AAU Program supports travel and school basketball programs. Travel and school basketball *games* should take precedence over feeder team tryouts at this time of year.  You are permitted to come late or leave early to meet other obligations and no one will be penalized for missing all or part of a tryout.  If this is an issue or you are absolutely unable to make any of the scheduled tryouts, please contact Bobby Thompson at (425) 314-7983 or via email at everetthoopclub@gmail.com.

No sideline coaching. Our roles are distinct. Coaches will run the tryout process, parents will support and cheer. It’s difficult enough for the players to keep focused with all the pressure on the court, so even well-intentioned advice can be a huge distraction. Also, our coaches will be trying specific drills (certain types of defenses, different offensive sets, etc.) and will be asking the kids to do complicated tasks that might be difficult to understand from a parent’s perspective. As such, it’s best just to watch, enjoy the tryout process, and cheer the kids on.

Player Notification Process

While we hope that every player trying out is able to participate with one of our teams, the reality is that our program is a select team environment, and there is the possibility that not all players will make a team.

Upon completion of tryouts and subsequent evaluations, rosters will be posted on the appropriate team pages under the Roster button, the Sunday following your respective tryout dates. While coaches can handle this process as they wish, players who do not make a roster will not necessarily be notified directly. If you wish to receive specific feedback on your child’s performance at our tryouts and what factors were considered in the decision making process, you may contact Club Director Bobby Thompson at everetthoopclub@gmail.com.  He will direct your inquiry to the appropriate person for a response.

The encouragement we would like to provide to those that don’t make our program is that just because there wasn’t an opportunity this year doesn’t mean there won’t be one in future years.  We would encourage those that don’t participate in our program this year to seek other playing opportunities (such as the Everett Boys & Girls Club or personal training) to continue their quests to become better players.  If you need guidance in this area, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.


 

UPDATE – Results From Boys AAU Tryouts

As a result of last week’s successful Everett AAU Boys Basketball Tryouts, Everett Hoop Club would like to provide the following updates to parents/players:

* Because of the high number of 6th grade participants, Everett Hoop Club will be forming two teams at this grade level.  The Club will be hosting another tryout/practice for these players to define the composition of the two teams. This additional tryout will be Thursday, October 29th at Everett High School from 7:30p-9:00p.  All participants at the 6th grade level will be placed on one of these teams.

* Because of a communication mishap, the the 8th grade coach just received contact information for the players that tried out.  Players/parents will be receiving a phone call from Coach Alex today on the results from tryouts.  

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Gish at (425) 508-8066.  Thanks again to all the players that came out and competed!
