2012-2013 SEASON UPDATE!

We still don't have schedules yet for the upcoming 2012-2013 season.   We had to add 2 new Alpha teams and a new Senior team due to increased registration (a good thing!) plus Mary Parrillo has been under the weather the past few days (not a good thing), so we haven't been able to confirm the schedules yet.   We should have schedules by next week, but what we can say definatively at this point is that:

GAMES AND MINI-HOOPS START SATURDAY NOVEMBER 3, 2012

MINIHOOPS will be Saturdays at 1:30 pm.

ALPHA DIVISION GAMES (ages 8-10) are Saturdays GENERALLY 1:30, 2:30 or 3:30 pm

JUNIOR DIVISION GAMES (ages 11-12) are Saturdays GENERALLY 4:30 or 5:30 pm

SENIOR DIVISION GAMES (ages 13-17) are Saturdays GENERALLY 6:30 or 7:30 pm

ALL GAMES ARE AT PARK VIEW MIDDLE SCHOOL.

When we say generally, we may have to shuffle things around a bit to accomodate certain events (like school dances) that will affect a large number of our players (don't ask -- special requests for individual issues can't be accommodated).

THERE WILL BE NO PRACTICES ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2012 (Halloween).

THERE WILL BE NO PRACTICES ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 (Election Day)

IT IS STILL NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER BUT WE HAVE TO KNOW ASAP IF YOU ARE INTERESTED SO WE CAN ORDER ENOUGH SHIRTS. IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN PLAYING, PLEASE CALL MARY PARRILLO ASAP AT (401) 464-8654.   We added three new teams!, so we need and welcome more players at all age levels.   Come on out, get some exercise and have some fun with Edgewood Girls Basketball!!!!!. 



Tuesday, October 30
TUESDAY OCT 30 UPDATE

THERE ARE NO PRACTICES TUESDAY OCT 30 (because Bain is closed).

THERE ARE NO PRACTICES WEDNESDAY OCT 31 (because of Halloween). 

We still aren't sure what is going to happen this Saturday Nov 3. The printing of the schedules was delayed due to the weather, the printing of the uniforms was delayed because of the weather, and we don't know whether the Park View gym will be available.   The coaches are meeting Thursday night, so we should have updates for everyone on Friday.   If we can't play games on Saturday afternoon, we still might practice on Saturday so don't make alternative plans just yet!  Thanks for your patience. 



Saturday, October 18
WE NEED SPONSORS

Due to increased registration, we added three new teams!!!!  If you are interested in sponsoring a team for the upcoming season, please contact franparisi@aol.com.   Team sponsors receive:

CONGRATULATONS 2011-2012 SEASON CHAMPIONS!

Congrats to the 2011-2012 Alpha Division Champions Doggie Do's Starrz, who beat the Commerical Screenprint Rockers in a well played and hard fought game.  The Rockers overcame a large halftime deficiet with strong second half defense to make for a thrilling ending, but couldn't catch up to the Starzz sharpshooting offense.  

Congrats as well the Junior Division Champions Wild Colonial Sun, who beat a scrappy Providence Bicycle Lynx in an incredibly exciting game.  Tied at halftime, both teams played exceptionally well in the second half, but the Sun's offensive juggernaut pulled ahead of the Lynx's relentless defense in the last few minutes to win the game.

Thanks, finally, to all the coaches, players, families and fans, who made the entire 2011-2012 season a great success.
