Team Program Mission
HLB’s© Team Program mission is to fill the need for competition in a team environment with the express purpose of providing an opportunity in which players can test individual skill development/improvement under game pressure and at game speed.
The most important goal of the programs is to create real and measurable individual skill improvement in an environment that facilitates the player’s love of the game – and therefore enhance their personal desire/commitment to improve their individual skill level.

Basic Program Format for Middle School teams (5th grade and above; Boys & Girls)
Team Organization and Formation
Accomplished primarily through signups and referrals.
NOTES: Tryouts held when necessary, i.e. – in the event that numbers interested exceed spots available.
We do NOT guarantee having teams at each grade level for both boys and girls.
HLB© PROVIDES ALL COACHES, COACHES TRAINING AND BASIC SUPPORT/GUIDANCE FOR TEAM FORMATION, FUNDRAISING & DEVELOPMENT
1. SKILLS - Primary Focus is on individual player skill improvement first and foremost
SKILL INSTRUCTION SESSIONS AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM ARE INCLUDED FOR EVERY PLAYER!!
2. Competition - begins with teams playing in local leagues and tourneys. As teams progress in development, they may advance to playing in regional tournaments as warranted.
3. Practices are VERY important to the development of each player and the team’s progress. Players are expected to attend practices regularly. Typically there are 2 per week in the “active” season (after the school season is completed.) Teams and coaches may opt for a 3rd practice if feasible for all.
Signups are taken in December and January (“Formation and Basic Development period”.) Teams filled as players enter the program and, if necessary, tryouts are held. If interested in signing up, click here
LIMITED activity until the end of the school season – teams may practice and/or play in Jan and early Feb or may not, dependent on the team members’ school season schedules
Active Season begins at the conclusion of the school season. Regular practice period begins and local league and/or tourney competition begins.
Teams play & practice throughout spring. Where desired, HLB© supports teams playing in the summer. We hope to keep the core of teams together to build long term success by limiting player turnover.
INSTRUCTION & CONDITIONING are required and included for every player. Conditioning will take place in Jan. and Feb. during much of the Formation and Development period. Instruction is allowed to be scheduled at various times throughout the team season, but it is HIGHLY recommended that families do so before and after the spring active season.
