​​​​​HFL Cougar Hoops Registration for the 2019-2020 season is now Closed.  



Practice Time Update

Updated 10/24

The B Gym is not available to us this year due to the cafeteria remodel.  Because of this, our gym time allocation will not be what it has been in the past.  The school teams will have priority, and our program will get whatever is left over.  We should have a decent allocation, but not every team will get multiple practices per week, especially once Varsity /JV games start in December.   We also anticipate that there may be several last minute changes, due to changes in the Varsity teams' games and practices.

To offset some of the lost time, Cougar Hoops has purchased court time at Elim and at the Rush Henrietta Rec Center.  This was done at significant cost to our program, but it was a necessary expense to try to get more gym time for our teams.

Practices will officially begin the week of 11/4, although time the first couple of weeks is limited due to other commitments in the gyms for school sports and other community organizations. 

The 7/8 grade teams will have priority for scheduling the first two weeks.  After Modified basketball starts the week of 11/18, those Cougar Hoops teams will stop practicing (as they will be practicing daily with their respective Modified teams) and more time will be available for our younger teams.  

We still do not have confirmed practice time for November, but the expectation is that this time will be confirmed by the school soon.  When this happens your coaches will send you a practice schedule for the month.  

Thanks for your patience and understanding.  

 

COUGAR HOOPS BOARD


Cougar Hoops Varsity Shooting Clinic

Our Annual Cougar Hoops Coaches Shooting Clinic will be Saturday November 2nd, 2019.  This is our traditional kick-off to the travel basketball season, hosted by our own HFL Boys and Girls Varsity coaches and players. Coach Willoughby and Coach Neenan, as well as several current Varsity players will be on hand to instruct the children. It is a very informative session, and a great way for our younger hoops players to connect with the High School players, most of whom are Cougar Hoops alumni and alumnae themselves! 

Location is the High School A gym.  Session times are as follows...

 

- Boys grade 3 through 5 -  Noon - 1PM

- Boys grade 6 through 8 -  1-2PM 

 

- Girls grade 6 through 8 -  2-3PM

- Girls grade 3 through 5 -  3-4PM

 

Pizza will be served after each session in the A gym lobby.

 

Hope to see you there!!  


THE BASKETBALL COMMITMENT:

 

The Cougar Hoops mission statement is to teach HFL boys and girls the game of basketball in a fun and competitive atmosphere that encourages skill development, sportsmanship, camaraderie and learning how to win and lose with class. Typically teams practice two times per week and have one (1) to two (2) games per weekend. Players are expected to attend the vast majority of practices and games.
