Mardi Gras Kids Camp If you haven't registered yet it's not too late.  Checkout the details for Mardi Gras kids camp next week...several options. Speed & Agility Training Coming Soon Coach Ryan and I will start BASKETBALL SPECIFIC SPEED & AGILITY TRAINING. He is now certified and will be forming classes next week. Look for a flier in the gym indicating times, days, and prices. No longer do you need to do football or soccer or any other sport exercises, we will concentrate on those exercises that are BASKETBALL SPECIFIC. Our New Trainer Justin Polk will start in March on Friday’s and will include Form, Function and Scoring the Ball Fundamentals. He will have 2 classes.  For 1 hr. each that will enhance your ability to score the ball. He will concentrate on footwork, form, function, and IQ needed to properly Shoot and Score the ball. Highly detailed. Limited number per class. The first session is March – May. Flier and details will be in the gym next week.   BIG MAN CLASS Come Hell or High water we will develop big men who can play and act like big men in Jr. High and High School. I am so tired of seeing soft bigs or 6’0 forwards. Big kids quit basketball cause the little people don’t throw them the ball and rec. coaches never develop them because at young ages they are all somewhat uncoordinated because of their size. Nobody works with them, so we will dedicate a class to making these players better. Class will start in March and will be Friday classes. We will have a limited number of spots open, look for flier and details next week.   Practice Mardi Gras Week We will be closed on Tuesday, all Tuesday players can come Monday at the same time the would normally come.   Team Formation We will start posting teams next week, they will not be final until March 8th. March 10th will be the start of new practice schedule all will follow. If you have not done so please goto A&J Sports in Mandeville to get uniform fitted for both practice and game uniform and shooter shirt. We will provide the store with your number once you are on a team.
