This is what Coach Goose had to say about our early game on Sunday.
“I am proud of how the guys bounced back in the second game and played tough against a good team!
That first game was quite the challenge and I think it’s cool to see what a good group of 4th graders looks like after playing together for over a year! I don’t think we are too far off from getting to their level…. They moved the ball well, were well disciplined and took good open shots. I think our guys are totally capable of getting there. With that said, I know Bryan and I are very excited to break down our performance in practice this week and keep these guys growing as a team!
Great game guys! See you at practice!
Today we will work on some handling. First try wrapping it around your head. Then move on to your ankles and waist. If that’s too easy for you, try around the world wraps. Start by wrapping the ball around your head, then bringing it down and around your waist, and finally around your ankles. Then work on your crossovers and between the legs. For an extra challenge, try triples. You crossover, go between the legs, then behind the back, and through the legs again.
Today’s Daily Drill is some strength exercises. Start with 10 push-ups and 10 sit-ups. Do this twice. Then, move on to 10 squats and 10 walking lunges. You’re done! Good job!
At today’s practice we worked on moving without the ball. Some things to remember are keeping your head up, cutting, hands up, and constant movement. on our 2 on 2 drills, we focused on driving to the basket and picking our head up. Good practice Geese!
Todays daily drill is something with a bit more shooting. Find a park or basketball court. Try 25 free throws first. Try to get 5 in a row! Next, shoot 50 free throws. Try to get 8 out of 10. Comment your best out of 10!

Today’s Daily Drill is simple. 50 right hand dribbles, 50 left hand dribbles, and 50 crossovers. If that is too easy, try it with your head up!
