2013-2014 Saints Basketball!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to Saints basketball! I hope that the upcoming season is filled with cheers and memories. At St. Gregory, our goal is to provide an environment that not only promotes the game, but also promotes teamwork, skill development, sportsmanship and fun.

St. Gregory the Great is one of the largest basketball programs in the region. There are more than 125 participants each and every year. Along with the responsibility of selecting coaches to mentor your sons and daughters, there is an underlying commitment for student-athletes to apply the same energy and focus inside the classroom.

It takes the efforts of many to maintain these high levels of participation and competition. With this in mind, each family will be required to serve eight (basketball) volunteer hours. There are a number of ways to become involved. Please check this website frequently for important dates and opportunities. Thanks for your continued support!

Please download, print, and fill out the SGS Basketball and TCBL Registration Forms below.

Remember, no pass is a good pass unless your teammate catches it and if they know the ball is coming to them.

Tips on shooting free throws


Being a good free throw shooter takes a lot of hard work and a great amount of concentration. It's the only part of the game of basketball where you can think only of yourself and still help your team. If you look at the box score of teams that lose games by 4 points or less, take a look at how many free throws they miss. Chances are, if they had made half of what they missed, they would have won the game. Here is a link of some tips on free throw shooting from one of best free throw shooters of all time, Larry Bird:
