WHAT WE LOOK FOR AT TRYOUTS (THAT SHOULD CARRY OVER THROUGH THE SEASON):

               * Students with good basketball skills or with enough athletic ability and potential,

                 and the willingness to learn the necessary skills

               * Student-athletes with positive, team oriented attitudes.

                  We want this to be a fun experience for everyone- We need full buy in from everyone.

               * Students must be eligible academically at the time of tryouts.  

               * Student-athletes that are team players and unselfish, willing to play whatever role

                  they are asked to help the team the most.

               * Student-athletes who practice hard every day and who want to get better

               * Student-athletes with good potential and the willingness to learn.

THINGS TO KNOW  IF YOU MAKE THE FINAL CUT AND ARE ON THE TEAM:

               * every player is required to pay a SACS transportation fee of $10

               * every player should purchase a team shooting shirt with # on back (name is optional)

               * The girls who make the team will decide if they want a signup for snacks on away games. If      

                  they do, we need parents to help with team snacks for away games and a possible team party.

* For away games, students should go home after school, bus usually leaves at 4:00pm at the  

   earliest.
