Musings from a middle school basketball coach

We have 3 wins and 2 losses so far.  We had to let go of several players because they chose not make good decisions off the court.  Funny thing, as soon as we let them go we won several games in a row.  Weird how that works.   We have a playoff this year so we are still in the hunt.  We have a talented team if we keep getting better we might just make it to the promised land!  Well let the games continue and have a great 2019!

                                 International Night Soccer Tournament was a blast!

We just held our annual International Night Soccer Tournament.  The turn out was pretty good and a surprise team lead by two club soccer females won the tournament.  Each year we give out trophies and on the big one, the winning names are inscribed for the whole school to see in the trophy case.  The winning team name was quite unique this year it was, "Mmmm Chicken".   Let the games continue!

                                         Musing from a middle school basketball coach

Well, we finished 5w and 5L this year.  We beat who we suppose to and gave the other teams a run for the money.  I will miss this crew.   For the most, they did what they were supposed to do on and off the court. We have started our travel basketball team.  We have a new element this year we decided to let two girls play on our team.  These girls can play !!!  Will fill you in as the season progresses.  Needless to say, the players must act accordingly in school in order to participate fully, goals 3.0 and no referrals.  Let the games continue!

Bucs Practice

We had a ton of fun at the Tampa Bay Bucs football Practice.  It was hot,  but free food and water went along way to make the event most enjoyable. The kids loved the Madden truck as well.  Thanks to the Grossi's for making this possible !
