Hawks Player Tryout
The reaction to the announcement of the launch of our new national league basketball team, the West Yorkshire Hawks, has been amazing, especially among the players in West Yorkshire. One of the main driving forces behind this team’s launch is to provide more opportunities for players aspiring to compete at a higher level, and there is certainly a clear demand for it.
We have a crystal-clear vision that sets us apart. We aspire to be a source of immense pride for the region, fostering a positive and inspiring force within the local community. The club aims to leave an indelible mark on everyone who encounters it, inspiring dreams and aspirations both on and off the court. The recruitment of the right players to represent this club is an integral step towards realising this vision as we gear up for our inaugural season in September.
With great excitement, we are thrilled to share the exciting details of our open tryouts. This is your chance to showcase your skills and earn a coveted spot on the West Yorkshire Hawks team. Best of all, attending the tryouts is absolutely free, eliminating any barriers for anyone who wishes to join the team.
The tryouts will take place on the Hawks’ home court, the University of Huddersfield. There will be three open tryouts, and we strongly encourage all interested players to attend all three sessions, if possible. This will provide you with ample opportunities to impress our coaching staff and allow us to get to know you better as a person.
Players must be aware that being selected for the West Yorkshire Hawks entails a significant commitment. If chosen, you’ll be expected to dedicate yourself to the team for the entire 2023/24 season. We are not merely building a team; we are constructing something truly extraordinary—a force that will make a positive difference in our local community. Therefore, we are seeking passionate individuals who are ready to contribute their skills, time, and energy to this remarkable endeavor.
