Change Team: 
Week of December 2nd
by posted 12/03/2019

Hi Team!


Reminder that we kick off the season this week with

- practice Thursday 7-8 pm @ Coleytown Elementary (bring inflated size 5 or 27.5 inch ball, water bottle)

- game is 12 pm on Saturday 12/7 at Green’s Farms School. We play the Bucks. Please arrive by 11.40 am


Pinnies will be handed out at practice on Thursday. Those are to be worn to each practice and game. 


If you need a ball head to Olympia Sports they are marked down as they are going out of business. Otherwise hit up ASF. 


Schedules are up on the Westport Basketball Association website if you need to plan ahead: www.westportbasketball.org


Looking forward to next weeks practice on Thursday 12/12. I am going to cancel that practice as many of the elementary schools have chorus concerts that night including Addie at CES at 7 pm (so we have no gym to practice in as it doubles as the auditorium). 


If folks are up for it we can split the gym with another 4th grade team on Monday the 9th at 6 pm (GFS). Or your player can choose a time that works for them and fold into into a 5 pm or 6 pm practice on Friday or one of the Monday practices at 5 pm or 6 pm with another 4th grade team (list below in my original kick off update) or take the week off for practice.

  • Practice starts the week of 12/2 – our practice slot is 7-8 pm on Thursdays at CES. First practice is on December 5th

  • If your player cannot make the scheduled team practice, she is welcome at any of the 5 other practices during the week (see schedule below). It has proven too difficult to balance teams, get everyone on a team for a date they can practice, and match players with friends/carpools with the limited parent coach dates/times available.We have a few players out of the 55 registered that this will affect:

    • Monday 5-6 pm @ KHS: Jena Wider (Thunder)

    • Monday 6-7 pm @ GFS: Brian Rivel (Knicks)

    • Thursday 5-6 pm @ CES: Steven Beck (Bucks)

    • Thursday 7-8 pm @ CES: Heather Talbott (Blazers)

    • Friday 5-6 pm @ KHS: Rick Minnich (76ers)

    • Friday 6-7 pm @ KHS: Dan Seale (Celtics)

  • Games start 12/7 @ GFS.  Our allocated game time slots are: 10.50 am; 12 pm or 1.10 pm start.  

  • YOU can find all the referenced details on the WBA website: Please log into http://www.westportbasketball.org/ to check out your player’s team, practice days/time/location and game schedule (‘Teams’ on upper left tool bar; ‘Choose a Team’; ‘Girls 4’ and select ‘Trail Blazers (Talbott))
