Next Try-OUT date is set for Sunday, December 15th at the RFC! Some of you need to get in the gym and work on shooting/dribbling before this date! You do not have to sign up on the message board this time. You just need to be sure to register when you get to the RFC.
Please sign up on the message board if you want to ride the charter bus to the game. Cost will be approximately $16 for the bus and a ticket to get in (still working on a group discount for tickets!) One bus is for Wildcat Athletes (with a couple supervisors) and one bus is for the Parents. The first 50 to sign up will get a FREE SmSU t-shirt!! There is room for 52 people on each bus! Should be a great time!
I was very pleased with the number of young athletes at the try outs! I saw a LOT of talented basketball players! By midnight last night, I gave an evaluation score to each individual athlete. Keep working on those fundamentals so that you can IMPROVE your score at the next try out in December.
Best of luck to ALL Wildcats as they begin their new basketball season!!!! I am hoping to get out and watch A LOT of athletes this winter!!
1. Can my son or daughter come to the tryouts just to work on fundamentals? (YES, however, If the athlete has a lot of basketball skills, I can be mighty persuasive to play AAU!!)
2. Can Seniors come to AAU tryouts to work on fundamentals??? YES!!
3. Will I be doing private lessons once the basketball seasons start?? YES, A lot of athletes want EXTRA help with shooting, etc during the season
4. Do I have to come to all five tryouts? NO. If you truly believe you were one of the top five players on your Wildcat AAU team, there is a pretty good chance that you will make the team again. I re-evaluate you every time that you come to a tryout. A lot of athletes improve their score every time they come to a new tryout because they are more familiar with the drills. I do, however, need to know that you are still interested in playing ASAP!
I have been getting a lot of requests for private lessons............I am available 4:30 - 7:30PM (Monday - Thursday) until varsity basketball begins. Most people are going one hour @ $15.
Finally....The Wildcat Harlem Shake:
Couple things: After doing 75+ free private lessons last year, I have decided that I will need to charge for them this year or I will be here until midnight every night. The cost is very reasonable...........$8 for a half hour (recommended for 4th-8th grade) or $15 per hour (Varsity or JV players). I usually get extremely busy in November!!
Also, we are hoping to have 20 teams this next year. If you have questions, post them on the message board and I will respond on the website.
Yes, everyone will need to try out again this year! Cost will be increased by only $20 to help cover gym rent.
Will have five tryout dates this year.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
