2016-2017 6th Grade Grizzlies Youth Basketball Team

We would like to thank all of the players (and parents) that tried out for Grizzlies Youth Basketball last week.  It has been a difficult few days for our coaching staff as we have tried to put these teams together.  It takes a lot of courage to put yourself in a situation like a tryout and we really appreciate all of the interest in our program and encourage all of the players to continue improving their basketball skills.

Since the final night of tryouts, we have had a few changes in 6th grade.  We had a couple of players decide to play with other teams, so we will not have enough players to field two teams in that age group this year.  We have decided to just have one team of 10 players this season.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Congratulations to the following players who have been selected to play on the 2016-2017 6th Grade Grizzlies Youth Basketball.

Jovy Archibald 
Kaden Christensen
Samuel de Jong
Aiden Evans
Tyler Holgate
Logan Johnson
Mason Pettit
Carter Stott
Austin Taylor
Seth Witzel

This team will be coached by Troy Taylor. Troy has coached in our program previously and is a terrific basketball and baseball coach.

Players/Parents will be receiving an email with more information in the next day or two.

Congratulations on making this team.

Last Chance for Free Registration – 2016-2017 Grizzlies Youth Basketball Tryouts

The Free Registration Deadline is Tuesday Oct. 25 at 10:00 am.  At that time the free registration link will be disabled so that we can prepare the tryout lists.

 https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/41812/signups/new

We will charge a $20.00 registration fee for anyone that registers at the door.  The $20.00 registration fee is to encourage everyone to register online for free.   Player registration at the door causes unnecessary work as the players have to added to each coach’s list (it can also lead to errors).  Additionally, the time spent dealing with late registration takes away from the time the coaches can spend evaluating players.

 

As a reminder, Grizzlies Youth Basketball Tryouts start Tuesday Oct. 25, 2016.  They will be held in the small gym at Copper Hills High School.

6th and 7th Grade will be 6:00 – 8:00 pm

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON 2016-2017 GRIZZLIES YOUTH BASKETBALL

The Grizzlies Youth Program will be starting in October 2016.

In the past seasons, we have started in August/September, but due to gym availability, players involved with football, and other reasons, we will start this year in October.

For those that want to play in the Fall, parents are encouraged play with their teams from last year.  Contact us with questions about which leagues you should play in.

Information will be updated on this site and on our Facebook page in September.

We are planning on holding our Fall Skills camp in Mid-October, with tryouts concluded by the end of October.

Grizzlies Youth Basketball will be selecting one team in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades this year.  These teams will be coached by someone on the CHHS Basketball Staff.

Additional teams in each grade may be formed, but they will need to find coaches and practice time.  More details will follow in September.
