My name is Daniel Hall and I, with Dan Smith, will be coaching your boys’ RYAA basketball team this year. Dan and I concentrate on fundamentals and fun. We try to be as fair as possible with playing times and positions. Since we will only have one practice a week, it would help if you can work with your child at home. If you don’t have a goal, just having them practice dribbling and handling the ball helps more than you realize. Practices will be at the RES 2-3 gym from 8-9pm on Thursdays. You do not need to buy your child new shoes for basketball, but please ensure the shoes they bring to practice are dry and clean. We will have a couple of “plays” drawn up to run and go over basics each week. With lots of running thrown in there so they should sleep well. Our games will be held in the 2-3 Gym on Saturdays. I am told we may have a couple of away games but don’t know for sure yet. We look forward to coaching your boys this year and hope to have a lot of fun.
