Spring Clinics & Shootouts

The BG Girls Feeder Program is excited to announce that Coach K along with his BGHS staff and a few players, will once again team-up with the feeder program to host our spring skills clinics.

Clinics:The clinics are open to all students grades 5th-8th who will be attending BGHS, so please pass it along to anyone who you feel may be interested. We will accept 4th graders, but I prefer to speak with them prior to registration so pass along my email address. 

Clinic Dates and Locations: 7:00pm - 8:30pm - April 4, 11, 18, 25 & May 2, 9, 16, 23, @ Camelot Park

Shootouts: As we did last spring, we will compete in a few one-day shootouts. We are hoping we can play at least 3 per grade level. Last spring we combined 5th/6th & 7th/8th for the shootouts, which we may or may not need to do this year. Your registration fee includes participation in the shootouts and clinic. Also, if you can only participate in the clinics that is perfectly OK. The ultimate goal this spring will be to increase the skill level of every player in the program.

Participation: Many have asked about the spring season, and if you needed to sign-up for everything! NO - if you only want to participate in the clinics, or vice versa, that is completely fine. The objective of the spring season is to keep the girls playing a bit of basketball while allowing them to participate in other sports, so we are completely flexible. Even if you could only attend a few of the clinics - it is worth the time.

Also, note that girls not currently in our program CAN attend the clinics. Please forward this on to those folks who you think might be interested. There is a section on the bottom of the Google doc that they can list their name

Fees: Participation fees will be determined by the number of participants, but we anticipate around $100 - $125 player. Participation fees will be collected on the first evening of the clinics

Signup: Please use this link to complete the spreadsheet by indicating if your daughter would like to participate in the clinics as well as which dates they are (or are not) available to potentially play in a shootout.

The signup spreadsheet can be found here: 2016 Buffalo Grove Spring Basketball  

We really hope that all players take advantage of this opportunity to learn and work with the BG staff and players. If you have not signed up for the clinic, or indicated which shootouts you can participate in, please do so by the end of this week (3/11).
