The schedule has been released and is attached. We only have one game before the Holidays but it is against one of the teams we already played in Madeira, and I think we played well against them. The other good news is that we only have two "away" games. The rest are at the IH Middle School. Please, also note, the quirk in our schedule...we play three games in three days from 1/17 to 1/19. Please let me know if your daughter can not make it to a game.
Also, there will be no practice on Monday, December 9. That is the night of the Future Braves where we will attend the girls Varsity game at the IH High School. I sent in the information of the players who RSVP'd. If your daughter is attending, please have them meet me at the check-in at the High School Gym at 5:45. We have pizza at 6 and the game starts at 7:30. I expect the game to finish at 8:45 or so. Please pick up your player at the High School or let me know if you have to pick her up earlier and I can walk them out to the parking lot.
We have been having some good practices. I wanted to let you know that we are stressing good passing, moving without the ball, setting picks/screens, and playing good defense. Also, rather than teaching the girls set "plays" on offense, we are trying to teach them how to play with and without the ball. It is taking some time, but I can see the girls getting the ideas and concepts understood. The two biggest things I am trying to get our team to understand is that it is ok to make a mistake, and to just keep on playing; and to not be afraid to take their shots. Many of our players are afraid to shoot because they are convinced they are going to miss. We have repeatedly told them that the ball will never go in, if you never shoot it. As always, we are trying to make sure the girls are having fun, and I am always open to any ideas or suggestions you would like to make.
