Q. Can my child play on a particular coach's team? Is there still room at a specific Rec centre? Can my child be on their friend's team? Can I have my child play with a friend so we can share rides?

A. Due to the large number of players in HBA, we cannot make special promises to any player.

Q. I forgot my practice night/game location, and don't have the coach's phone number.

Q. What if I can't make my practice night due to another commitment?

A. Practices are very important. As a team game, many concepts need to be worked on with other teammates. Most players will miss a practice through the season. Those that cannot make any practices due to another commitment should contact HBA to see if there is another facility with an opening that has a different practice night. If this option is not available, the player should rethink their involvement with HBA
