Hoopin' with 4th-6th!
The mystery about being in last three years of elementary school is the seemingly endless amount of energy stored in these girls’ bodies… After Sara 1 and Sarah 2 (the dynamic duo coaching staff) called the girls in to begin practice, I was startled by the sound of violent pounding of feet and I half expected to see a stampede coming my way! These girls were ready to go and half of them have never played AAU basketball before this year.
The full practice starts with Coach Wetstone giving the girls a thought of the day, with this practice themed “push yourself.” As I am looking around the group I am thinking to myself ‘I wonder if these girls know the caliber of coaches they have?’
Congrats to our 7th and 8th grade girls, who both took home the championship trophy this weekend! b>

Starting: December 2nd
Place: Crown Hill Elementary
Days: Monday's and Fridays
Time: 6pm to 7pm
Description: These training classes are ran and directed by Coach Antwon Jones. Each player can attend as many classes during the month as they would like. In order to participate in a class, an e-mail must be sent to reserve your players spot. Classes are completed once we have 20 enrolled, but in the case of a class being full you will still have the option to attend.
A message from Coach Jones:
"I really believe these classes will help our program close the gap on some of the elite programs locally and nationally. The classes will also speed up the development of our players and help them learn all aspects of basketball and strengthing the body!"
