Welcome to 3rd Grade Rec Basketball! Your child is on the Orange team, and I'm looking forward to coaching this squad! I'm also looking for help. Please let me know if you are interested in assisting - no basketball knowledge required!
Our practices are Fridays from 6:00 - 7:00 PM at Calvin Leete Elementary School. Our first practice will be Friday, November 5th at Calvin Leete from 6 until 7 PM.
Our games will be on Saturdays starting November 13. Game schedules will be posted on GBL's website- www.guilfordbasketball.com). We'll have 10 regular season games and then playoffs.
Please have your son bring water to each practice. If you have a 27.5 inch ball bring that too.. otherwise I have a bunch of extras. We're following school Covid rules, so masks must be worn for all practices and all games.
We are focused on making this season a balance of fun and the forming of a foundation for your child to develop as a basketball player. I like to keep things active during practice-no dead time, lots of moving and hopefully lots of fun!
Please let me know if your son needs to miss a practice or game. (Advanced notice for missed games is key since I fill out a player rotation form before each game that ensures equal playing time).
I'll be in touch again shortly. I'm looking forward to a fantastic season!!
