Team Formation

Selection Process - Three or four evaluators per age group usually conduct the selection process with one of them assigned as head coach for that age. Players are evaluated on skill, attitude, and coachability.

HSC makes every effort to keep the process as unbiased as possible and will notify the parents in a timely manner as to whether their player made the team or not. Players that are selected for teams need to indicate their acceptance of the offered position and are expected to follow the player commitment policy. Upon acceptance a minimum payment of 20% of registration fees is required by June 1st.

Tournaments - Classic teams typically participate in 3 or 4 tournaments during the year. The tournaments are selected by the coach to suit the needs of the team.
