Open Gym Time - PLEASE take advantage of the opportunity for your athlete to be a kid and play basketball, the more they play the better they get, the more fun they have playing the better they want to get. We will announce the in-season Open Gym days and locations once teams and practice schedules have been announced (on FB and in emails).   These sessions will be supervised by a coach and are a part of your registration fee.  This will be a time for your athlete to come and play.  Parents are to not give any coaching cues during this time, it is a time for the athlete to play with no criticism positive or negative, just have fun playing basketball.

All Star Opportunity – We are working on our All-Star opportunity for 2019-20. More information to come.  This opportunity will take place after the final league tournament. It will be a selection by the coaches and there will be a small additional fee.  

I hope this information assists you and your family’s pre-planning for your basketball star.  We look forward to having your young athlete play with us this year.  We hope you take advantage of the extra basketball opportunities we are hosting. These opportunities are being provided to assist in making your athlete a better player.  If your child is only playing/practicing 1 x a week, you are not going to see the improvement in their abilities that you are wanting to see.  Please know that we are trying to give you opportunities for your child to develop into a great player, but you as parents must assist them in taking advantage of these opportunities.

Coaches are needed:  If there is a coach in your family, please contact us.  Having all our coaches in place prior to tryouts is imperative.  If you played high school basketball or more, we need your help.  Please sign-up as a coach.

High School Basketball Athletes are welcome to coach, but they MUST be partnered with an adult coach. NO Junior High Coaches are allowed.

We do have a required Coaching Education session set up for all our coaches on Sun, Oct. 27th.

1/2nd Grade Coaches – 6:00-7:00 pm

3rd-6th Grade Coaches – 7:15-8:45 pm

 

WYSA is looking forward to another great basketball season.  Please print this page and refer to this email before you send questions to me.  Most of the 100’s of text and emails I answered last year, had the information covered in emails.  I do my best to keep up with the questions, but please help me as well and read the information I send before you ask the question.

 

If I have not answered your questions, please let me know.

GO TEXANS,

Wendy
