The Season is Upon Us…Holiday & Basketball!
It’s Christmas week, and the schedule is our giftwrapped Christmas Present. With Christmas & New Year’s falling on Friday, our Monday lunchtime basketball sessions, and also our Wednesday night sessions are unaffected by the Holidays. The Woodmere Gym remains available on Monday Dec 21st and Dec 28th, and is also open as usual on Wednesday evenings Dec 23rd and Dec 30th. Be there!
Please be sure you have made your $70 payment for the upcoming season, and took the time to sign up HERE. Checks should be mailed to Dwayne Hendricks at 6293 Taneytown St, NorthPort, FL 34291. If its easier or you wish to pay in cash, please bring your payment to a Monday or Wednesday session this week.
Teams will be formed based on those that have paid, and at this point, players will be assigned to teams during/after our Wednesday evening session on December 30th. Based on the number of players that have registered and paid, there could be anywhere from 4-6 teams. Each team could consist of anywhere from 6 to 8 players. There has also been some discussion of playing 4 on 4 with small team rosters, shorter games, and 3 games per night instead of 2.
If we end up with 4 teams (status quo as per the last couple of years), there will be a draft of new players, in the inverse order of last years’ standings. (White, Blue, Green, Maroon,……then Maroon, Green, Blue, White).
If we have a draft, Team Captains will be Gary Kaylor (white), Gary Bockhold / Ed Johnston (blue), Bob Kinsley / Dave Tucker (green), and Dwayne Hendricks (maroon). There are several new players this year, and it looks like there’s an excellent calibre of new players coming into the league, based on those that have been coming to the Monday and Wednesday sessions. And that’s exciting.
The first game will be on January 6th. We will send out Team Rosters last next week, along with the schedule for Game Times & Dates, and also publish both on the website, shortly after they have been determined on December 30th.
Please remember that every year, after Week 3, there may be a couple of Roster Changes or Swaps, in the event that one team may be weaker or stronger than intended, or in the event of a key player getting hurt, quitting, or becoming otherwise unavailable.
