Practice location change/scheduling update
by posted 11/18/2019

We are still awaiting the schedule for next weekend's tournament.  As soon as we have that, we will assign game rosters.  We are guaranteed at least three games.  I would like to have a rotation of 10 or 11 girls for each game, meaning that all players will sit out one of the tournament games.  

Please let me know (text or email) if your daughter cannot play Saturday or Sunday next weekend and I will do my best to come up with appropriate rosters for each game.  If you cannot make both days, there is no guarantee of playing in two games.

In addition, the league schedule will be coming out this week.  I will input that into the system when it is available, so you will all be able to start planning your future weekends better.

Practices are going well, and our team is starting to come together.  Please keep encouraging ball handling at home!

See you tonight.

Warm Up Shirt Order
by posted 11/13/2019

Dear MYBA 5th grade girls' families,
We are about to finalize the order for the warm up shirts which we discussed either over email and/or at Sunday's game. I will place the order and put up the $ for it, and we can work out venmo or other options for reimbursement.
A few updates and clarifications: 
* all the shirt styles are lycra material, including the hooded option (this is not a sweatshirt). if you think your daughter would prefer the long sleeve without the hood, please let me know. 
* The sizes seem to run on the larger size, and as an FYI: the majority of the boys a grade ahead getting youth large, if that helps.
* we can order headbands with a paw, tiger or similar; they are $10 for tie design and $7 for the stretch design. LMK if you are interested in purchasing these as well.
* If you can't recall what you asked for, would like to change your order or add a headband, feel free to send an email follow up at 
thanks and go Tigers!

First Practice and First Game
by posted 11/07/2019


It was great to meet the girls last night and start to move the ball.  For those who were not there, some of the things we covered in practice were:

- pass and cut (give/go)

- floor positioning/spacing

- basic positions and responsibilities

- team defense

- press/break press

- out of bounds under the basket "box" play

- layups


Our first game is this Sunday, Nov 10 11:30 AM at Adams School in Guilford


For most of the season, we will only bring 10 players to each game.  We have 15 on the roster, and want to make sure that girls get a chance to play in each game they attend.  On Sunday, if you can make it....we need you.  Most of the players do not yet have uniforms, just wear a black jersey with a number.  


For all practices and games, please let me know as early as possible in advance if your daughter cannot be there.  This will be important going forward, as there will be girls scheduled out of games who would gladly jump in.


Please arrive 20 minutes prior to gametime to warm up and go over a few things.


See you Sunday.
