Dear Boys Basketball Candidates and Parents,
Basketball season will be upon us before we know it, and we are extremely fortunate that a very large number of boys have expressed interest in trying out for our basketball teams. With that being said, we will be offering the following teams this winter season for basketball: Middle School Team for grades 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, Junior Varsity Team for 9th and 10th grades, and our Varsity Team for those boys in 9th thru 12th grades.
If your son is chosen for any of the teams, please know that they will practice and play both during the week and weekends. All players must attend faithfully. Please avoid conflicts with other activities such as music lessons, other sports teams, etc. Consider the substantial amount of time that your son would have to devote to basketball if they tryout and make the team. Our goal is to provide a quality experience. As always, academics must be our top priority.
Since only a limited number of players can be selected for the teams, we also suggest that your son sign up for a church or recreational team so he would have a place to play if he does not make the Heathwood team. Please note that for any 5th and 6th graders that are not selected for the Middle School team, we may offer a 5th-6th grade developmental team if we have enough interest. This team would practice after the Holiday Break.
Please remember that you must have all athletic forms filled out on FamilyID before your son will be allowed to tryout. To register on FamilyID please go to the following link:
**If you played a Fall Sport, you still must register on Family ID for the Winter Sport**
