A nice win today for team #11 with all players contributing in various ways. We are emphasizing three principles to the boys: (1) sportsmanship (especially respect for the officials and opponents), (2) work ethic, and (3) competitive play. The boys did well in all three aspects today.
Next week, I will be travelling so Coach Eugene Van Biert (email@example.com) will be handling things. Please let him know if you are likely to miss the practice or game. The practice is next Friday, 7:15p at Schofield. Next week's game location has changed. It will be at the Wellesley Middle School Gym B at 2:10p on Saturday. The following week we have no practice/game due to Thanksgiving.

Fellow Basketball Hoops Parents,
Eugene Van Biert and I are excited to be coaching your boys this season. Our first practice will be next Friday, 11/15 @7:15p at Schofield School. The boys should bring a water bottle and size 29.5 ball. All practices will be on Fridays at 7:15p at Schofield.
The first game is the very next morning, Saturday, 11/16 @ 11:50a at Sprague School. All games will be on Saturdays at Sprague, but at various times (see full schedule below).
There will be no practice or game during the week of Thanksgiving or Christmas.
We have 10 boys on the squad (see roster below), split evenly between 6th and 7th graders. I am sure we have a good mix of skills and sizes. We hope to be competitive, but our main goals will be for each boy to enjoy the experience and develop their athletic skills. Per league rules, all boys will play between 50-75% of the minutes. When all 10 boys show up for the game, each boy will play half the minutes.
We will be looking for parent involvement with the scorer's table. I look forward to meeting each of you next week.
