Hi parents and players!
My name is Brian Cody and I am excited to be joined by Mike Walsh in coaching the Buckeyes (Junior Boys Hoops team #2)! Along with our sons, Nate and Cooper, we'd like to welcome you to the team! I hope everybody is as excited as we are that basketball season is finally starting!
I have three goals for the coming season:
- Build fundamental basketball skills that can be used at any level
- Foster good sportsmanship and helpful attitutes
- Have fun!
As the season gets underway, I'd like to share some information regarding team logistics.
When will we practice?
Practices will be held on Tuesday nights from 7:00pm-8:00pm in the Sprague School gym. We only have one hour per week to improve our skills, and having gym time is a privilege, so come focused and prepared to work hard!
When are our games?
Games are held on Saturdays, at various starting times between 8:00am and 4:00pm. The location will be either the middle school, Bates, or Schofield. Please refer to the Buckeyes team page for the complete schedule.
What equipment do I need?
Equipment for basketball is simple! Please come to practices and games with a 28.5" basketball. Other than that, comfortable athletic wear and sneakers are all you need. We will supply uniforms in advance of the first game.
What if I have a question?
The Wellesley Basketball Association website is a great resource for many of your needs. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me or Mike. We are here to help and want to make sure that everybody has a fun and productive season. There is contact information available on the team page. For reference, our email addresses are:
We're looking forward to a great season. See you out on the court!
