Please see the below email from Dan Boyle - Triton's new Varsity Girls Basketball Coach. This is open to players in Grade 3 and up.
Hello Future Players in the Institution for Savings Girls’ Holiday Basketball Tournament,
My name is Dan Boyle and I am the head girls’ basketball coach at Triton Regional High School and I am writing to you to invite you to a FREE clinic hosted by the players of the Triton Vikings Girls’ Basketball team on Saturday, December 27, 2014 from 3-4 PM in our gym. This clinic is part of the 11th Annual Institution for Savings Girls’ Holiday Basketball Tournament, which will feature the high school teams of Ipswich, Manchester-Essex, Newburyport, and Triton on both Saturday and Sunday.
The players and coaches at Triton are excited to be able to help you learn some skills about the greatest game ever invented and have a lot of laughs while you are doing it. There will be even be FREE pizza and water provided by the Institution for Savings if you come and play.
So, please, come and see us for the clinic, eat some pizza, and stick around to watch some great high school girls’ basketball. Who knows? This clinic may be the first step in you playing in the same tournament when you are in high school.
After weeks of tryouts and evaluations, all of our TYB teams have now been formed and the season is underway. Some teams have begun practices this week, with all teams in the gyms starting next week. This is a great time in the season, full of excitement, promise and opportunity.
Front and center with every youth sports organization is the need for RESPECT. At TYB, we take this very seriously and mandate that everyone involved with the program show respect for the players, coaches, parents, referees, other spectators, volunteers and the facilities where we have the privilege to play. Everyone needs to be aware of the guidelines that TYB has in place; on our website under “Policies” are both our Conduct Policy and our Player Protection Policy. Every player, parent, and volunteer is responsible for reading and reviewing these policies – we would encourage each family to review them together with their player(s). As stated in each policy, the failure to abide by these procedures can result in immediate dismissal from the program for the player/coach or the removal of the parent/spectator from a game or all future games.
Finally, please show respect for the schools and gymnasiums that we are fortunate to be able to use. Please leave them as you found them and pick up after yourselves when you leave. In particular, take all water/Gatorade bottles with you. Finally, no TYB invitee has any right to be in any other part of these schools other than the hallway, bathroom and gym. If people do not show respect for these schools, then we will lose the right to hold practices/games there and will have to shut down the program.
We are all here so that the players can have fun, develop some basketball skills, and, at the program’s best, learn a life lesson or two along the way. Let’s ensure those lessons are positive.
