BSS, where GIRLS are on the BALL!
Welcome to the Girls Program Information PAGE! This is where we will post announcements, current events and updates for our girls teams. Newly appointed to role of Girls Program Director, I am here to help you navigate the world of AAU basketball. Together, I know we can create the best scenarios for your daughter to reach her next level!
Please feel free to email me with questions, concerns and suggestions. thanks, Coach Dawn Email: email@example.com
GRADES 4-8 FEBRUARY 4th--8th -- Players in grades 4-8 will begin receiving their invitations to join our teams. Should you have any questions about the details in your letter OR if you do not recieve one by FRIDAY FEB 8th please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
STILL ACCEPTING PLAYERS!! If you know of players who did not have the chance to attend one of our evaluation sessions PLEASE Email me! I love creating the best scenarios for kids and this means placing them at their appropriate level which challnges them enough to gain skill and confidence but not be over, or under, whelmed. The more kids we have the better this process goes and we all have more fun while learning the game! Send your friends along!
UPCOMING HIGH SCHOOL EVALUATIONS!! High School Sessions are set for February 10th and 17th from 730-830 at St Marks School in Southboro. PLEASE PRE-REGISTER right here on this website!
LOOKING FOR WOMEN to COACH our GIRLS! Our program will be dedicated to finding female athletes to coach our players. We may not hit the mark 100% and we certainly appreciate and respect the Male Coaching staff here at BSS/Mass Select. However, we will strive to have women coach your daughters. A unique aspect to OUR PROGRAM ALONE! If you know of a young (or old!) woman who has played the game and has experience coaching young kids, please refer them along and we will thank you heartily!
