Important Basketball Information

I’m getting a lot of questions lately regarding a few different subjects so I’m sending out this information to try and clear some of this up.

Jerseys

Jerseys are done and I will be picking them up Wednesday evening.  I will be scheduling a time Thursday for coaches to be able to pick up their teams jerseys and shorts.

Spirit Wear Orders

Spirit Wear Orders are due this Saturday morning at the middle school gym.  You can turn them in at the gate table in the lobby.  Payment is required with the order.  If paying with cash, please put the order form and money in an envelope with your name or the child’s name on the outside of the envelope.  If paying with check, please attach the check to the order form. (staple, paperclip, etc).  Orders will be ready for pickup at the games on January 6th.

Hayden Christmas Parade

Due to the parade tonight, ALL PRACTICES AT BOTH GYMS TONIGHT HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.

Dec 9th Games

There were a lot of questions on Facebook regarding our games and the remodeling of the middle school gym.  I have been working with the middle school principal and she has told me that they will have the gym ready for us to play on Saturday.  The schools have always been great to us and this is no exception.  Games on Saturday, Dec 9th WILL BE PLAYED AS SCHEDULED.

Christmas Jamboree

All of our age groups are scheduled to be in a Christmas Jamboree with the North Jefferson basketball league (Gardendale, Fultondale, Morris, Warrior, Corner, and Hayden).  These games will be played Dec 14th through Dec 19th.  Exact dates and times are going to determined at a meeting Wednesday night.  I should have the schedule posted online by Friday at the latest.

10U Girls, 13U Girls, and 15U Boys schedules

These age groups play in the North Jefferson league, their regular season does not technically start until the first week of January.  Because of this, their regular season schedule will not be finalized for another week or so.  As soon as the schedule is final I will post it, but right now all we know is regular season games for these age groups will start January 6th.  They will play two games in the Christmas Jamboree Dec 14-19.

Help keep our gyms clean!

Parents
Both Hayden Middle School and Hayden Elementary School have been extremely good to our park basketball program by allowing us full access to their gyms during the season. Without them, we would not be able to provide a basketball program for your kids. 
With that in mind, please clean up any trash around you when using the gym for practice and/or games. Also, during practice at either gym, please do not allow your children to play with the schools equipment or go on the stage. These gyms are used as classrooms on a daily basis and they should not have to come in each morning and clean up after us. 
If we don’t keep the gyms clean, we will lose access to them and won’t be able to provide a basketball program for your kids any longer so please help by doing your part. 
Thanks
