2019-2020 Season Info

Good Morning Hornets!


You are receiving this email due to an email address that was provided at our Herndon Girls Basketball Interest Meeting last month. If you are no longer interested in playing basketball for the 2019-2020 season, please let me know and I can remove you from the distribution list. You can find important information below:



All tryout practices are held at Herndon High School. Please let us know if you have questions regarding which team to try-out for.

Practice locations will vary for each team. Due to renovation and limited space at HHS, we will also be using Herndon United Methodist Church (directly across from the high school) and Herndon Middle School throughout the year. We will update you of the season practice schedule as soon as teams are formed following tryouts.



I’ve attached important paperwork that needs to be completed before any athlete can participate in tryouts.

  • Emergency Care Card- Yes, you have filled this out before at the start of the school year for the school’s records. However, each coach for each season needs this form. (It’s easier if you make a copy at the beginning of the year and save it to your desktop to refrain from filling this form out multiple times a year). If you played a fall sport, we still need a copy for our records.


  • Physical Examination Form- Please make sure you have a current physical on file with Mrs. Petruzzi (HHS athletic trainer). Once it’s completed and signed by all parties, turn it in to Mrs. Petruzzi in the Athletic Training Room. It’s best practice to do this sooner rather than later. You cannot participate until this is officially turned in. If you played a fall sport at HHS, you do not need to do this again. I will send out a reminder email a week before tryouts to anyone that does not have an active physical on file.


  • Concussion Education- All athletes must also complete Concussion Education. It is an online presentation, but they must print and sign the last page. If a printer is not accessible to you, please “print to pdf” and email it to me and I will print it for you. Students should bring their physicals and concussion ed forms to Mrs. Petruzzi in the Athletic Training Clinic. I’ve attached the pdf in this email.

Team Store:

The flyers for the team store are attached if you would like to share it with friends and family. The store can also be accessed at the following links:  JV/Freshman Team and Varsity Team. It does not matter which store you buy from, it’s all under one umbrella. The only difference is the JV/Freshman package (sweats and practice jersey) that can only be purchased from that store only.


A look ahead:

  • The scrimmage dates are not posted online. Those dates are: 11/19 at Patriot and 11/26 vs Osbourn Park.
  • Varsity first game is December 3rd. Freshman/JV first game is December 6th.
  • For planning purposes, the varsity team will practice over the Thanksgiving extended holiday break, with 2 days of rest. (Breaks: either Wednesday or Friday, plus Thursday). We will announce this once the team is formed. This is subject to change based on space availability.
  • The varsity team will participate in a winter holiday tournament in Middletown, Maryland on December 27th and 28th. The team will return each day. JV and Freshman teams will not participate in a winter holiday tournament.


That’s all I have for now. Please let us know if you have any questions! More info can be found here regarding the mandatory forms.
