ECHS BBall Family,
Welcome to the season! The coaching staff and I are extremely excited for the upcoming season. I will be sending out weekly communications regarding the schedule and important items, so please look for emails from me (primarily on Sundays).
Attached to this email, I have included the program-wide schedule for the entire month of November, as well as the game schedules for Varsity, JV, and the Frosh team. Please keep in mind that these schedules are subject to change. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Due to the sheer number of teams (3 levels of boys bball, 2 levels of girls bball) competing for gym time, our practice schedule has turned into a pretty wild game of Tetris. The schedules, unfortunately, have to shift from week to week. I have attached November's practice schedule to this email, and will try to get you the rest of the season within the next week or so.
I am aware that quite a few of you are still participating in Fall Sports. JV and Varsity will be practicing together until football is done, and several JV players may be asked to fill varsity roles in our early tournament. I will speak to those players and families individually.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Break
This is a tough season for sports, as our season spans both Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. As you view the schedule, keep in mind that all three teams have activities over Thanksgiving break (JV and Varsity early in the week, Frosh the days following Thanksgiving). In addition, the freshmen have a tournament over Christmas break as well (Dec 27-30). JV and Varsity will be off for most of Christmas break, but with skills workouts and some practices scheduled. Please let me know ASAP if you will be out of town over these breaks, so we can adjust accordingly.
I have also attached our White Tiger Basketball Program Team Policy document to this email. This includes our expectations for players, parents, and our coaches. I will be going over this document with all of the players. Please take a look at it, and let me know if you have any questions.
