The son of a longtime middle and high school basketball coach, this will be Coach Stanley’s 4th non Covid season on the Roycemore sideline. His teams always play hard and have fun, cheering on all the successes big and small. Coach Stanley is a devoted follower of his alma mater, Michigan State and is happy his pre Michael Jordan favorite team is an NBA champion!
Dear Middle School Families,
Middle School basketball season is nearly upon us! Practices will start on Monday, November 15. Practices will run between 3:45-4:45 Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As of now we have two games scheduled for the season. One in December and one in January. Coach Long will be working with other middle schools in the area and will hopefully get additional games scheduled if/when the Covid situation improves. If there is a schedule change I will communicate it to all necessary parties.
My goals for the year are for the kids to first and foremost have fun, to be a positive and helpful teammate, to develop new skills, and build upon the skills they have. We will have a Middle School team so all Griffins are welcome to play, there will be no “girls” team and “boys” team, just a Roycemore Team. When the games come around, the plan is to play 2 games each time. A 5th/6th grade team and a 7th/8th grade team. If your Griffins have come to practice they will play in those games.
Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out.
