The Winter season runs November 2 to February 17. There are two evening practices per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:30-8:30pm at the Latin School Gyms. These practices focus on skill development with heavy emphasis on ball handling, spacing fundamentals, shooting and shot creation plus scrimmages.
The third practice per week is Saturdays 10-11am also at the Latin School. We will set aside two Saturdays for 3-on-3 tournaments among the team participants. 3-on-3 offers a high frequency experience for developing an in-depth understanding of half-court movement, spacing, attacking and defending. With only three players, every athlete must be engaged at every moment. On offense, the athletes are either with the ball or actively moving without the ball via cuts and screens. On defense, they are guarding the ball or getting in position to help.
In addition to the three practice sessions per week, the team will compete in six (6) local shootouts: Sundays Nov 21, Dec 5 & 12, Jan 23 & 30, Feb 13. The shootouts will include two games at a suburban location and provide an opportunity for competitive 5-on-5 play incorporating new skills and playing concepts.
There will be no practices during the Thanksgiving and Winter Holiday breaks. All the dates and times are on the Team calendar.
The fee for the Winter Team 7/8 is $1275 which includes:
- Tue/Thu/Sat practices @ Latin (38)
- Sun Shootouts (6 dates, 12 games)
- Flow Gear
- Use of Flow Uniform
