The HAYAA basketball program is available for all girls in 1st-8th grades and boys in 1st-12th grades in the Hartland, MI and surrounding area. 1st and 2nd graders play in our instructional league (co-ed & no evaluations). Mandatory evaluations are required for 3rd-12th grade for team placement. This is a pay to play program with any level from beginning to experienced players.
Online registration will be available. In house and travel players must register before tryouts/evaluations.
7th-8th grade boys planning to try out for the school team but want HAYAA as a back up must still register. You may play in HAYAA even if you make the school team for middle school basketball. If you are selected for the middle school team and do not wish to continue in HAYAA, you can receive a refund. Any player who is also playing on a school team will not be able to play a HAYAA game until the school season has ended (usually the first 2 games).
9th-12th grade boys and girls may play in HAYAA only if not playing high school ball. Only register for HAYAA Basketball if you will not be playing on the high school team.
Middle School girls that make the school team are still eligible to play HAYAA basketball. The season will end before school ball starts.
For girls in 5th/6th (JV) and 7th/8th (Varsity) grade, play will be determined by the number of registrations per age group. If there are enough registrations, we will try to make enough teams to play in Hartland. If registrations are limited, the teams will play in a league that HAYAA chooses.
Freshman Girls, Freshman Boys and JV Boys begin practice in November. Games will begin in December. Freshman Boys play Friday nights at Farms. Freshman Girls and JV Boys play Saturdays at Farms. JV Girls and Varsity Girls practice times and game times will vary depending on if they play in Hartland or play elsewhere. You will be notified of this information as soon as it is available. Varsity & Senior Boys begin practices in December. Varsity & Senior Boys play on Saturdays at Ore Creek starting in January.
