Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Thank you for supporting the Elementary Basketball League at Maple Lane. Due to the great response, we decided to split the group into four teams. (Blue Hens, Wolves, Nittany Lions, Hornets) These teams will form together to create an intramural basketball league for Maple Lane students only. In this league players will practice on Tuesdays, beginning December 10th, from 3:50-4:50 pm. We will focus on teaching basketball fundamentals such as dribbling, shooting, passing, and the rules of the game. To start, beginning players will scrimmage on Tuesday afternoons. As skills develop, players of these teams will begin participating in weekly games at Maple Lane. Starting in January, these games will be held on Tuesdays in Maple Lane’s Gym. The schedule can be found below.
Some players from each intramural team, with prior basketball experience, will represent Maple Lane and will be practicing on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning December 10th, from 3:50-4:50 PM. This practice will focus on advancing their skills. Students in this group will play on Saturday mornings at PS DuPont Middle School beginning January 10th, 2015. You will be notified if your child is selected for this team. Our overall goal for both groups is learning and improving basketball basic and most importantly having fun safely!!
Please be aware that practice ends at 4:50 pm and students must be picked up then. An updated schedule and roster for players for Saturday games, which will be held at PS DuPont will be sent at a later date. Please let us know if you are unavailable for any of the games. Also, please refer to the rosters found on the flip side of this sheet to find out what team your child is assigned to.
