Under current local, state and national laws we are permitted to have a season and will attempt to
do so. If at any time state or federal laws/rules change, we will abide by those rules. All COVID-19 precautionary measures will be observed. We will
have temperature checks before practice and matches, a daily COVID-19 waiver to be completed by parents prior to practice, mask for coaches and no
non-essential persons in the room during practice and matches. There is no guarantee that we will have matches this year with outside towns although we
are in discussions to try and make that happen. This is a fluid situation, and we will adjust accordingly. The goal for this season is to keep the kids
active, having fun, learning and hopefully to compete.
WRESTLING SEASON REGISTRATION
This three-month wrestling program is for grades K – 8 beginning Tuesday, November
24th and ending Thursday, March 4th. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. As of right now, we will be practicing at Beast Coast Wrestling
Club, 192 CARR AVE, KEANSBURG, NJ 07734 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. Practice location is subject to change should the schools grant us access to use the Satz
cafeteria during the season.
FEE: $135 (FIRST CHILD), $100 (ADDITIONAL CHILDREN) + $25 Association Fee. Payment of annual fee is for the first HYAA sport
participated in each school year, not calendar year. If you have already paid for a prior sport, you will not be charged again.
IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION
IF YOU INTEND TO WRESTLE THIS YEAR, PLEASE REGISTER ASAP SO WE KNOW WHAT OUR
NUMBERS ARE FOR THE YEAR AND CAN PLAN ACCORDINGLY. The HYAA organization has moved to a TeamSnap registration process. TeamSnap is an online
mobile-enabled sports team management application that allows our league, coaches and parents a more efficient means of communication schedules and team
events. Our registration process will be very similar to what was in place and will take less than two minutes to complete. If you do not have a
TeamSnap account, you will be asked to create one as you register (requires an email address and password). Please register
using the online form. EVERYONE MUST CREATE A FAMILY ACCOUNT and register your child(ren) on TeamSnap. All registrations
require a credit card at the time of registration.

HYAA Days at Holmdel HS
The HYAA 1st grade girls took to the HS varsity field and had a chance to play under the lights. By all accounts the kids had a blast.
Thanks so much to the soccer commissioners for arranging this and to Alison for capturing all the smiling faces!

HYAA 2020 TRAVEL BASKETBALL TRYOUTS
HYAA will be conducting
travel basketball team tryouts for Girls 4th thru 8th grades and Boys 3rd thru 8th grades. As HYAA travel teams are highly competitive, there will need
to be some cuts as part of the evaluation process and there is no guaranteed playing time. HYAA has a recreation program which is geared towards the
less competitive player.
Exceptional 2nd grade boys can try out for the Boys 3rd grade teams (1-2 are sometimes selected). Exceptional 3rd grade girls can try
out for the Girls 4th grade team (1-2 are sometimes selected).
We are asking for everyone interested in signing up to register on
TeamSnap by 10/9/2020. Due to limitations on gym availability, the exact dates and times for tryouts will be announced at a later date.
1. Please complete the required tryout registration form by Friday,

start time to warm up.

identified (make sure the boys/girls wear the same jersey and number you entered on the registration form).
7. Parents who want to watch the tryout
are asked to sit in the bleachers and refrain from cheering and coaching the players during the tryout.
8. Selection is based upon several factors
that include dribbling, speed, agility, shooting, teamwork, "coachability', defensive skills, as well as overall basketball acumen.
