     Another good girls basketball season has gone by.  A lot of Good things were seen this year despite various records.  We had a loyal fan base that stuck with us through thick and thin.  Both JV and Varsity had some shining moments where you could see they were having fun and being successful.
     That said, now it's time to think ahead and begin to train for it and get better.  The TOP 4 Things girls need to practice night and day when they can until next season ARE:

1) Ball-handling.  If you can't dribble down the court, holding your own against a defender, without looking down near the ball, you got a lot of work to do.
2) Shooting.  Points win games ( well great defense and points wins games but we'll ge t to that).  Force yourself to learn the proper form and function of a shot and get as close to it as possible - allowing for what feels good to you.
3) Defense.  BFA Girls defense has been fairly good in recent years.  Conditioning, foot work, constant movement, and hunger are essential to good defense.
4) Rebounding/Boxing out.  Rebounds limit opportunities of the other team to score hands down.  Learning to identify when wand where shots come from, and then asserting position is KEY to rebounding.

     This summer there will be 'Summer Basketball Workouts' for girls again.  Coach Jim ( and various guests from the collegiate level and beyond), Coach Banach, and Coach Moore will be working 2 days a week with the varsity.  Coach Banach and Coach Moore will also be holding a workout for Those not-quite-ready-for-the-varsity-level-yet---more-like-JV Workouts.  Incoming Freshman are welcome to attend.  Workouts mainly consist of drills and scrimmage.

      Stayed Tuned for Start Dates and what days of the week workouts will be.

ALAS, the time has come - Start date for summer basketball for girls are is 6/29 at 6:00 in the HS gym.  It will be and hour and a half and girls of all levels ( incoming freshman, JV, and Varsity).  Wendesday that week will also be open to girls of all levels.

Going forward from there, Mondays and fridays will be for varsity girls ( and those either invited up to play with them or those skilled enough to keep up) and Wednesdays will be for JV and girls with less to no HS experience.  We'll go the whole month of july and most likely NOT go into August ( as soccer preseason starts soon after)

Any questions - pleae contact Dan Banach 849-9356 or post here.  Here's to a summer of Basketball fun!

       Had a good showing of girls tonight.  1 7th grader, 1 freshman, 6 sophmores, 2 seniors.  Also had 2 Keene State Basketball players there to help out.  Was a great workout, and there was some good stuff left out on the court.  Did some agility drills ( with the ball of course), stamina drills, and a some scrimmaging.  A few would-be, will-be, and past varisty boys came out as well for the workout.



Session 2 on Wednesday should be equally fun.  As a REMINDER - no friday session this week as it is the day before the 4th.  Happy 7/4!

Attendance has been pretty consistent - holdign at b/w 8-12 girls. Surprisingly, the majority of players attending have no to little varisty experience.  There's A LOT of athleticism though with this same group that returns each session - speed, strength, and agility. 

Attendance


There will be some extar time for girls with challenging schedules this thursday at 6:00 in the middle school gym.  Call Dan Banach for more info 849-9356.

We had some very dedicated girls come out this summer and take advantage of the extra time and instruction.  In all there were 13 sessions.  There were a few girls who made it to 10-12 of them - even with their bust summer schedules.  ALL who attended though, improved their ball-handling skills, offensive and defensive awareness, got a jump on play sets for the upcoming season, grew stronger and got in better shape, and got to know the coaching staff for the season on the horizon.

Coach Jim got some great looks at the talent available this year - a good deal of athelticism and speed fills the roster looking ahead.
