Letter from Coach Charles 10-17-14

Dear Parents I want to cover several things in this letter as basketball season starts up. We are in the middle of our Fall Leagues and so far so good. I want to thank our experienced parents and players for working with our new people. One day shortly they will be the leaders of the next wave of new players. This year has been our best for the boys overall, we have been much more competitive in our games. Biggest reason, we are deeper with more quality players. Says a lot about what we are doing. Now we just need to play that way when we play at home at our schools and friends. Lol We are now starting our West St. Tammany Leagues next week as we start putting teams together. First split is 7/8 and 9/10. The second split is Mid December for our 11/12’s. In addition to these teams we will be playing the local Jr. high teams in games and tourney’s. Will be a great experience for our players to play their potential schools before they get there. This will occur in late November and December. I am in process of finalizing a evening date for every parent to come out and listen to a former college and now Head Officiating Coordinator for High School Basketball in our area. He will talk, demonstrate, explain and answer questions you may have. A great way to really understand what a refs job really is. Trust me it is not as you think it would be. We will also have a couple coaches there as well to assist. Become smarter about what is going on in you child's game. Lastly we have finally finalized a “Coaches Clinic” for our players. What this new program is about is very simple. We have secured the local High School Coaches to come in on 10 consecutive Sunday evening’s and hold a 1 hr class. They will talk about what they believe makes a quality player on and off the court. The will talk and demonstrate a skill they deem important for our players to know. Participation will be limited to 15- 4,5,6 graders @ 6:00 and 15 – 7,8 graders at 7:00. Detail flier is on web site and more details to follow. Players will be selected for participation. A new clinic will start Mid January and will run continuously year round. First class is October 26. A great way for our players to meet possibly their High School coaches early. >>Click here to download a flyer about the Coaches Clinic
