I hope everyone is doing well and getting excited for some summer hoops! Attached is the schedule for summer basketball, you will notice a small change from my previous email and that is the start date. We will begin June 1st at 5 PM and practice on June 2nd from 10 AM to 1 PM as well. These two days are to replace the 25th & 27th on the schedule as dance will be needing the gym.
Motion will be changed this year, pass & cut will be replaced with pass & screen away. The intention was never to stand outside and shoot 3's with never looking at the cutters, so we will make the tweaks. Our focus will be on good screens, driving into the key, hitting back cutters & posts ACTUALLY posting up. Plays will remain relatively the same, expect an updated playbook before the 1st. This summer will have a heavy emphasis on shooting form. Please leave ego's at the door and make the suggested changes, we will not have the same time to correct your form during season.
Here are the costs for this summer, if financial assistance is needed please let me know.
War of the Border (Longview, WA)
Gonzaga Team Camp
$ 140.00 (Total Cost is $340 boosters will take care of $200)

Each player is also required to bring a basketball to every practice and game, if you do not have one you may check one out from THS Basketball. You are also required to wear black shorts for practices and games.
Invoices will be sent via PayPal for each player that participates, prompt payment is appreciated. If you do not make the game teams you are not required to pay anything but are welcome to continue with practices for the summer.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
P.S. I apologize for those that showed up to open gym on Monday, I announced it was cancelled at the previous open gym but should have sent an email as well. We will have open gym tomorrow, I believe in the small gym.
All the Best,
