The Mercer Island Girls Basketball booster club met last night to discuss the upcoming select basketball season. While we have not officially finalized anything, we wanted to bring you up to speed on where things stand.
For tryouts, we have reserved court space at PEAK on Friday, October 1st, 6-9pm and Saturday, October 2nd 12:30pm – 3:30pm. For tune up clinics (to help get the girls ready before tryouts) we have space on Wednesday, September 22nd and 29th from 6pm – 7:30pm. These dates/times are not officially confirmed, just a placeholder for now.
In the meantime, we are finalizing details with our coaches and working to secure gym space for practices. We don’t have any details yet from the league we regularly compete in (ETL) but we are hopeful they will be able to pull together a program with games as they have done in prior years. As a backup option, we may be able to compete in the PEAK League that Becky runs at the Boys and Girls Club, but we don’t have confirmation of that yet.
Our goal as a board is to coalesce the teams (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade) with coaches as normal, with every intention of having them participate in a complete season of basketball. That said, anything can happen, so we ask for your patience as we work through the details.
We should have another update for you next week. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments or suggestions.
