Youth Royals Boys' Basketball

Hamilton Southeastern Royals Boys’ Basketball Youth Night will be on Saturday, January 16 when the Royals face the Anderson Indians. The JV game starts at 6:00 p.m. with the varsity game to follow around 7:30 p.m. All boys in the S.P.O.R.T.S. rec basketball leagues will be admitted free if they are wearing their team jersey. We encourage parents to attend the game with their sons. Immediately after the conclusion of the JV game, teams and coaches from the rec league will be recognized on the basketball floor – and will then help welcome the Royals out on the floor for warm-ups. Rec teams should plan to arrive by 6:45 pm and meet in the west lobby (the lobby nearest the HSE bench) during the fourth quarter of the JV game.

Counselor's Corner

2nd Semester Small Groups

Students have the opportunity to participate in group counseling. Group counseling is an excellent way for students to learn new skills, develop self-confidence, become more aware of how others see them, and practice new behaviors. Groups are formed on the basis of need. We will meet once a week for 20-25 minutes for six weeks. Groups will meet at 2:05, which means that participants will miss 20-25 min of SLT once a week for 6 weeks. Students are grouped by grade, and each group will consist of approximately 4-8 students. Depending on the needs identified, the following groups may be offered:

  • Dealing with Divorce
  • Social Skills
  • Felling Good About Me
  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Just for Girls
  • Test Taking & Test Anxiety

Permission Slips and more information are on the FCI website.

Retired Basketball Uniforms

  • $5.00 each piece
  • $7.00 set
