I am excited to be coaching basketball this season. I coached in the YMCA league last year and played through the 7th grade, which I know if very impressive. Luckily, I will be joined by Rachel Harrel as our Assistant Coach. This is her first-time coaching, but she played ball in High School.
I have twins and they will both be on the team. Their names are Miles and Elliott. Rachel's son will also be joining us, and his name is Samuel. I know many of you and your sons from the classrooms and soccer, but I am looking forward to getting to know all a bit better and getting to know the kids I haven't met before.
My main goals for the season include:
- Having fun in a team environment
- Helping the kids to learn the rules of Basketball, and seeing the kids improve in the fundamentals
- I want to see the kids hustle and try their best
- I want to get know the families and kids on the team to make Indian Hill schools feel more like a community
This is a "non-competitive" league and the focus is on learning and having fun. There are some strict rules about parents not yelling at referees or kids in a negative way. It is my job to enforce that rule, so please cooperate with me on that one and keep your comments positive and when refs make bad calls, just let it go.
We will have one practice a week and one game a week. We may also play in a tournament during the year, but we will connect on that later as there are a few different options.
When: Monday nights from 6:00 PM-7:00 PM starting 11/11/2019
Where: The Indian Hill Primary School Gym
I will not get a game schedule until 11/27 based on the information I've been given. We will be playing teams from other schools as well as one from Indian Hill Primary. I believe our games will be played both in Indian Hill and in other communities. I will share the schedule as soon as it is available.
If you have questions you can text, call, or email me.
