Basketball

Hello,

Basketball practice for 6th grade boys will start on Tuesday, November 9th. Due to a lack of gym space at River Ridge, practices will be held at St. Mary’s. We will generally practice on Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday. A full practice schedule will be issued during the first week of practice. Games are still currently being scheduled. (Area schools are all over the place when it comes to when they start basketball for grades 6 and under.)
.
Okay, now the complicated part.
.
We are going to practice, essentially, right after school. However, Warco is unable to transport the kids directly to St. Mary’s after school (due to Covid policies, I presume). That said, I don’t like the idea of parents having to pick their kids up at 3:20pm just to drive them to Bloomington.
.
Fortunately, most kids live in Bloomington and can ride the bus home, then go to practice.
.
Anyone else that NEEDS a ride from Patch Grove to Bloomington – I have room for three in my car. If anyone else is able to volunteer a ride to any additional kids, please let me know.
.
Practice will start at approximately 3:45pm – knowing that some kids may be late depending on their ride. We’ll practice until around 5:15pm.  (5th grade will be practicing right after us – there may be some overlap and scrimmaging depending on their timing.)
.
Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions.
.
