Sudbury Youth Basketball provides a safe learning environment for players of all abilities that develops the athletic skills, character, sportsmanship, & teamwork of Sudbury school children in grades K to 8, by participation in competitive basketball.
My name is Sam Rowley and I will be the head coach and partnering with Molly Berry as our assistant coach for your 5th/6th grade Sudbury Girls Basketball Team this year. Welcome to the FEVER!!! Below is our roster:
We are excited to get the season started. Our focus will be on teamwork, respect, having fun, and improving our basketball skills.
Here is the information for the season so you can start filling up your calendars:
Practices will be Tuesday evenings from 7-8pm. Our first practice will be tenatively on November 29th. The location and final confirmation is pending. We will share as soon as we know!
Games will be Wednesday nights, either 6-7, 7-8, or 8-9pm. Games will begin the week of 12/12. Specific game schedules will be posted to the Sudbury Youth Basketball website once the schedule is finalized.
Once we have the game schedule I will be sending everyone a teamsnap invite with the games/dates. It would be greatly appreciated if you can fill in your daughter’s availability so that we can plan accordingly. This will also give you the ability to sign up as a scorekeeper as we will need scorekeepers for the “home” games. All help and assistance is welcome!!
NOTE – for our first few weeks, there will be practices on both Tuesday and Wednesday. We will send along information on our locations and times once we have it.
We are looking for one other parent to help out as an assistant coach throughout the season. Please let me know if you are interested. You don't need to have had prior basketball experience to help!
