Hopefully everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday. It is time to resume our basketball merriment and everything is about to become real. The 1st 3 weeks of games have been posted @ https://www.athenspremierleague.com/copy-of-contact - Our 1st game is against Apalachee at 3:00 at the United Team Sport complex. We are the home team and will wear white. Directions to all gyms can be found @ https://www.athenspremierleague.com/copy-of-rules - We have 2 games the following week and 1 so far the week after. Practice this week: Monday: Old Gym from 3:30 - 4:30 Tuesday: Farm 3:30 - 5:30 Thursday: Old Gym 3:30 - 4:30
The season is off to a great start and the energy is really starting to pick up on the court. Our parents' meeting got delayed due to voting this week, but we are going to meet next Tuesday, November 14th in the conference room in the Spartan Center at 5:40. I look forward to seeing you to answer any questions you may have about this year. Monday, November 13th is picture day. As a result, we will not be traveling to the farm. Instead, we will practice in the Old Gym after pictures. Athletes can be picked up in the Middle School circle (not the Old Gym turnaround) at 5:30. Go Spartans!
With an emphasis on the development of complete basketball players, the programs have enjoyed a successful history. Both boys’ and girls’ programs have a track record of multiple Region Championships and deep playoff runs.
So that our athletes receive quality instruction with a realistic opportunity for playing time, the size of teams in some sports is limited. Students "try out" for teams. Although there is no guarantee that a student will be selected for a specific team, the number and variety of offerings provide many opportunities for each player.
