Hello Team 5 GREEN 1st Grade Mini Hoop Families,
I wanted to send a quick note introducing our Mini Hoops coaching staff. My name is Nate Jacobson and I am the father of four (two girls and two boys). I am a teacher (Elementary PE) in Clinton. Over the years, I have coached a variety of youth sports in town. We are fortunate to have Shawn Love and Kevin Dennehy as our assistant coaches. Shawn has three boys and is very active coaching multiple basketball teams. Kevin is the father of two boys and has coached youth baseball in town.
Our practices will be designed around getting all players actively engaged while having fun. The boys will learn the basic fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, and defense. The intangibles of teamwork, sportsmanship, comradery, sharing, and supporting one another will also be emphasized.
The season will start on Saturday, December 7th and run through February 29th (no practices on Dec. 28). Our practice time is 3:00 – 3:55 on Saturday at Melissa Jones Elementary School. The team (Team 5 - GREEN) is comprised of 9 players. Our team T-Shirt will be distributed this Saturday. Players will simply need sneakers. A water bottle is optional (there is a drinking fountain). There is no need to bring a basketball as all equipment is provided.
Parents are welcome to help out at practices if they desire. Likewise, feel free to drop and run!
Please feel free to contact me at any time. Email is email@example.com and cell is (860) 227-0149.
Looking forward to a great season!
