Announcements and Important Events
Hello Basketball Players & Parents!
Thank you to you and your children for the hard work and dedication they have put in the first two weeks of the basketball preseason. The work will continue over the next couple weeks before the season officially gets under way. Well over 50 boys and girls have come out for basketball this season and Kennett Middle School has created a basketball program that offers an athletic experience for each and every student on a developmentally appropriate level.
Below you will find links to the upcoming practice schedules for the boys & girls black, white & gold basketball teams, as well as for our Kennett Middle School Basketball Association (KMBA) Intramural league. The KMBA takes place on Friday afternoons (girls) and Saturday mornings (boys). Initial selections have been made for the individual Black, White & Gold teams and those rosters have been posted at school. The boys white team will split in to white and gold next week. As the preseason continues, coaches will be constantly watching and monitoring the progress of our players and adjustments may be made to those rosters. Players who are showing signs of hard work, dedication and improvement will be invited to play with a different team during the regular season. There is a place in Kennett Basketball for each and every student and opportunity for game time for each and every player. **All schedules are tentative and subject to change. Please be sure to sign up for text and email alerts on www.GoKMS.com. Be sure to select the appropriate teams and levels.
Below is a brief explanation of the practice schedules for each team:
White - Practices will take place after school 2-3 days a week from 2:30-4:30 and student will be able to utilize the late bus. There will be 2-3 games per week on average and these players will participate in the KMBA games on Friday's.
Gold - This is a group of reserve players who will practice after school 2 days a week. These players will play in the KMBA games on Friday's and will rotate in to the home and away White games each week.
Black - Practice will take place 3-4 days a week either 4:30-6pm or 6-7:30pm, and will rotate throughout the season. There will be 2-3 games per week. They will also participate in the KMBA games on Friday's. Supervision after school for the 4:30 practices will be left up to each coach. The black teams will not have access to the late bus and will need to organize outside transportation to get to and from practices. The outside doors to the gym will open for 30 minutes prior to each practice. They will lock, so don't be late!
