Our next GBL Membership Meeting will be on Thursday May 18th at 8pm at the Guilford Community Center-Whitfield Room. All are welcomed to attend. Newcomers looking to get involved-off season meetings are a good way to get a sense of what we do and how you might fit in the organization.
Reminder-registration open on our WEBSITEwww.guilfordbasketball.com for Skillz and Drillz summer camp with Coach Cliff Yerkes along with GHS Coaches and players. Weekly sessions beginning on July 10th, July 17th, July 24th and July 31st.
At the conclusion of the GBL season I spoke to numerous parents whose boys wanted to continue playing basketball. With that in mind I have decided to try something that will be hopefully both, flexible and fun for any and all Guilford 4-6th graders.
From 10:30 to 12:00 every Sunday starting March 12th I have reserved the Fire House basketball courts for boy to run 'pick up' games. The idea is to have kids sign up on a week to week basis - there is no long term commitment, just sign up that week if your son wants to come play that Sunday. We have been doing this for 6 weeks now and have had 8-14 kids every week. They are really enjoying the opportunity.
If you have any questions please just text or email me -
- 860-614-1014. If you are interested in helping organize (we could probably use 1-2 adults a week to help ref or simply be a presence) please let me know ASAP.
This is open to ALL 4-6th grade boys- ALL skill levels, and is not a GBL league but rather a way for your son to play basketball with his classmates Sundays he is available.
GBL Families-Please check out the following announcements and upcoming activities that may be of interest to you.√‚¬ SUMMER CAMP INFO AT BOTTOM OF THIS MESSAGE.
