    Players who wish to play both intramural and travel must pay both the club registration fee and the travel registration fee to participate on both teams. 


    Players are not guaranteed automatic succession to the next GRADE level for the next season. Players must tryout for their respective teams each year.


    Players will be selected by the travel coaches at the conclusion of two tryout sessions. Objective input on player selection can be provided by members of the travel committee and evaluators.

    ICBA permits teams to carry 2 non resident players. HHoops will consider non-resident players when filling roster spots based on ICBA rules on player movement.  Playing time will be left to the discretion of the coaches with strong emphasis on equitable playing time. Every player must play in every game and must get into the game before 3rd quarter.


    Participation in tournaments is up to each travel team and their coach.
