Fox Run Basketball Club

Information for Parents:
The "Fox Run Basketball Club" is back!  :) 
It is designed as an introduction to organized basketball and a developmental program so there will be no "cuts" and it is open to all grade 7 and 8 students (both boys & girls).  Players just need to committ to participating fully at all practices and games.....and come prepared to have fun!  

Practices:
We will run practices Mondays and Friday afternoons (3:05-4:30pm).  These practices will be divided into half of the practice will be spent developing basketball skills and learning basketball drills to help them practice on their own too.  The other half of the practices will be focus on scrimmages.

Scrimmages/Games:
Boys and girls will be divided and split into teams of 6-8 players. Scorekeeping will be done by the players sitting off and reffing will be done by the student-referees from our Sr. Basketball teams.

Tournaments: 
We will be planning at least one tournament for late February or early March.  This tournament(s) will likely be hosted at Fox Run and will be with one other school that we invite to participate.  Stay tuned!  :)

Cost:
The cost for the Fox Run Basketball Club will be $30.  This cost will cover t-shirts that will be purchased for each player on each team, basketballs and score flipcharts, paying student-referees, a trip to Red Deer College to watch a basketball game and food for a wind-up party.
