They had a goal of beating Southwestern (who won the New Washington Invite over us) and Madison, and the girls achieved both of those goals today! We knew if we could finish in front of them, that we would make it to Regional”, commented Coach Jerry Doyle. The Pirate boys team recorded a notable and Regional qualifying performance from Seth Parker; who finished 19th. Parker returns to the Regional round for the second straight year! “I told him that he knew what he had to do, and he went out and left nothing on the course”, concluded Coach Doyle.
The Charlestown Basketball Developmental League (CBDL) will host a FREE Basketball Coaching Clinic on Wednesday, October 22nd, from 6-830 PM, at the Charlestown High School. This purpose of this clinic is to help develop all of the basketball players among our community teams ; Schools (Elementary, Middle, High), CBDL, Travel Teams (CYP, CYLP) and our players that are in AAU programs.
Organizers are encouraging all current coaches to attend (all levels), with an open invitation to anyone that might be interested to coach down the line. This may be an opportunity for some prospective coaches to learn a little bit more before they jump into coaching the game, especially if they are sitting on the fence. This coaching clinic will include on-court demonstrations with local players; while performing some of the drills and skills that many of our current coaches use. Diagrams for participants to take notes on along with time for questions and answers will coaches will be made available. Currently all high school and middle school coaches have been asked to lead the before mentioned demonstrations, and Coach Gilbert will be conducting a presentation at the clinic.
