I am looking forward to coaching this great group of boys once again this year and building on all of the progress we made last season.
We started our season today, Tuesday, November 27, with a practice at MCCPS from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Please plan to pick up in the back parking lot outside of the gym doors for all practices.
Prior to the Thanksgiving break, I sent home a packet (double-sided) of the required forms to participate. These include all forms I need for the student-athletes to be eligible for the basketball season, including a sportsmanship contract that our league requires. If you have any questions about these forms, please let me know. Please note the boys cannot practice without their forms complete and submitted to me.
This afternoon the boys received hard copies of the practice and game schedules at school. We are very fortunate to play all of our home games at the JCC in Marblehead, located at 4 Community Road. Please note that for all league games, the boys will play first at home and second on the road. I have done my best to build the best schedule possible for all of our student-athletes. You will be updated with any changes that come up along the way.
Prior to each week throughout the season, I will send out a “Navigators Week Ahead” email. This will highlight the important information for that week including game times, bus times, addresses and anything else you need to know.
I am happy to let you know that the team is excited to be taking our annual field trip to the Boston Celtics-Dallas Mavericks game on Friday, January 4! I will be sending home a permission slip for this event and I hope all the boys will be able to attend. Please save the date. If you know that your child will be unable to attend, it will be extremely helpful if you could let me know well in advance. I look forward to this being a team building experience for the student-athletes and I am sure a great time will be had by all.
If you have any questions before the season begins or want me to add any additional emails to this distribution list going forward, please let me know. Thank you in advance for all of your support this season!
