Please register your basketball player now and help us to be able to plan our season! Planning for practice space and times are so important and we want to be able to get our KNIGHTS teams in our new field house for the season. And…..if you are at all interested in coaching or helping please call Barb Christopherson at 763.257.7447!
Here is a breakdown of the grades this season:
5TH – 8TH
Coach Gustin and Coach Buchanan will run the try-out on Saturday, September 7th from 8:30am to 9:30am for girls and 9:45am – 11:15am for boys. This is just a time for them to be able to see your daughter or son play/interact with others and assess the skill level so that they will be placed on the right team. After the tryouts, the teams will be firmed up, and coaches put in place. At that time we will set Parent/Coaches meetings for you to pick your practice days and times as well as your tournaments. No Sunday morning (not before 1pm) practices or tournaments will be scheduled, per the Knights new policy as of 2018. Uniforms will also be distributed at this meeting.
3RD – 4TH
We will again participate in the Waconia league for these grades. We will have one practice a week and play games with local teams on Saturdays. Your Parent/Coaches meeting will give you all the information that you need as well as distribute uniforms.
1ST – 2ND
We will help these young athletes learn basketball skills and drills, and they will have fun scrimmaging at a few MLHS Varsity Basketball games as well! Practices are Saturdays in December and January 8:45-9:45am. MLHS former boys varsity coach Dan Perrel will be coaching along with a few varsity players.
If you have any questions about any of these levels please call Barb Christopherson at 763.257.7447. If you are interested in coaching or assisting, please call Barb as well. If you know anyone else who might want to join us please reach out to them with information, or have them call Barb.
Please register today as it really helps us to plan the season.
Thank you for supporting the Knights.
