Hopkins Girls Basketball Association

Program Overview

We work to keep our program one of the most affordable programs around and to give an opportunity for everyone to join regardless of financial need. Parent, guardian and volunteer help give us that opportunity.  We are also seeking local business sponsorship again this year.  Full details about the costs of the program can be found on our registration page.

All skill levels are welcome.  HGBA strives to provide opportunity to players who want to participate in our program.  To meet this goal, HGBA may need to create combination teams, but at times cuts are necessary.  The best way to ensure this goal is met is to help keep participant numbers up so that multiple teams can be formed at each grade level.

Player Eligibility

Hopkins Girls Basketball Association is open to all girls in grades 3 through 8 who attend a school in the Hopkins district (this includes schools that are not Hopkins district public schools).

Athletes are allowed to participate with only one MYBA member association or school for the winter community-based youth basketball season.
Athletes must try out and compete with the travel basketball association where they attend school (some exceptions are listed below).
If a travel basketball opportunity through an association, school, community education, or similar does not exist in the area representing the youth athlete’s school attendance area, or if the athlete has been cut or restricted from their home association, they may participate with a bordering association. In this situation, the athlete does not need to complete the Player Transfer process.

Full eligibility details can be found here on the MYAS website.

Coaches for Grades 6, 7 and 8 are typically paid coaches (if paid coaches can be secured).

* Qualified parent coaches can be considered for 6-8 grade unpaid positions as need arises.  Coaching director and/or High School coach will typically assess and make a recommendation. 

Coaches for Grades 3-5 are typically volunteer/parent coaches
* Parent coaches will be assessed by the coaching coordinator and/or the High School coach to determine the best fit.  In the event that a grade 4-5 team cannot obtain a parent coach,  paid coaches will be considered but need board approval and confirmation that HGBA funds are available.
