Walled Lake Northern Basketball: Welcome

Monday, November 10
Tryouts and Info

Good afternoon players and parents,
 It's hard to believe that fall sports are over and we are one week from the start of the basketball season.  I just want to hit on some important dates and info for the nex two weeks.
We are still conditioning this week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 2:30 - 3:30.  The goal is to enter the season in as good of shape as possible.  Tryouts will be Novemver 17th - November 19th for all three levels (Freshman, JV and Varsity).  Everyone will be trying out at their own level unless you were invited by me personally (i.e. freshman will tryout for freshman, sophomores for JV and juniors and seniors for Varsity).  Freshman tryout times are 7-9 PM in the aux gym on the 17th and 5-7 PM in the main gym on the 18th and 19th.  JV tryout times will be 6-8 PM in the main gym on the 17th and 5-7 PM on the 18th and 19th in the main gym.  Varsity tryout times will be 4-6 PM on the 17th in the main gym and 7-9 PM on the 18th and 19th in the main gym.  Plan on a little extra time on the 19th since we will be letting everyone know face to face at the end of the tryout that day whether you made the team or not.  We are anticipating around 60 guys trying out at all levels and we will be keeping approximately 32 - 38 between the 3 levels.  We appreciate everyone's commitment and effort for trying out and we think its right that we talk to everyone individually.  Reminder that you must have a physical on file with the office from a fall sport or bring it to me on the first day of tryouts.  If you do not have a physical, you will not be able to tryout.  No exceptions. 
If you are fortunate enough to make the basketball team, there will be a mandatory parent meeting on Thursday November 20th from 7-8 PM.  We will be going over rules (both basketball and athletic department),  we will be collecting $50 for shooting shirt with name on the back, practice jersey with number on it and concession filling fee.  Booster will also be going over all of their information as well, including spirit wear.
For Varsity, another important date to keep open is Saturday November 22nd all day for our team building day.  We will be starting at 9:30 AM and continue on until the evening with team building challenges and roles and goals.  We will be feeding the guys lunch and dinner.
We have had a lot of guys working very hard since the end of last season.  Our motto is ATTITUDE - HARD WORK - PREPARATION, so those are a big part of what we are looking for.  Please let me know if you have any question and look forward to a great year.
