Note to all parents and players:

  • All players should try their best to make all tryouts so that the coaches. If for some reason you miss the first one you can still come to the second one.
  • If you are currently injured and did not play the previous season it will be very difficult for you to get onto a team since the coaches can't see your tryout.
  • If we should come into bad weather, new dates and times will be posted on the website at
  • For all new parents, there will be an important informational meeting after the first 10 minutes of each tryout. Please DO NOT just drop off your child and leave.

It is our promise that the coach will make every effort to improve the skills of each player on the team. Our expectation is that each coach act as a teacher who is responsible for the safety and well-being of each player on his or her team. Coaches will be a role model both on and off the court.


At AMBC2/Hardscrabble Club,
We are taking a proactive approach and reminding all our coaches/employees to adhere to hygiene protocols and best practices in and outside the club.
The health and safety of our players, employees, coaches and parents is our number one priority.
