Families of DC 7th Grade Basketball Players (including those who wish to play in 8th grade next year),
Here are two pieces of information about off-season DC junior high basketball:
- I know that we just ended our basketball season and had our year-end party, but we are already thinking about next season. At our year-end meetings with the boys, the 7th grade coaching staff made it really clear that, for those who were serious about improving as individuals and as a team, next season starts now. That being said, almost all of the boys indicated to me that they were interested in playing summer basketball this upcoming summer. I am signing up my son, Jackson, for one of the UD Basketball Camps. It would be great if others decided to participate too. The UD camps are day camps that occur on three different weeks: June 9-12, June 23-26, and June 14-17. Cost is $225 for a week. UD also offers a Shooting Clinic on June 13 and June 20. These are $60 per session. Below is the information for UD camps:
- Just like last summer, we will be entering a team in the Kingdom Sports Summer League. This starts in mid to late June and goes for 4-5 weeks (2 games per week). Kingdom will have information about these leagues very soon. I will get this information to you as soon as I have it. Last summer, if I remember correctly, each player paid $50-60. I think it was a $450 team fee for the league.
Stay tuned for more information.
