Pulaski FORCE is the legal operating name for our Pulaski Girls Basketball Youth organization. Our Mission is "To provide a structure and environment for girls to learn the game of basketball, and to continuously develop both basketball and personal life skills such that the girls participating in the program have an opportunity to succeed on and off the court. Teamwork, confidence, personal integrity, concern for others, and a strong work ethic shall be by-products of an athlete's participation in the organization's programs".
This past week, we were able to begin doing a few limited activities with our high school players. We hope that this is a positive step toward eventual resumption of youth basketball activities.
We are continue to work with key stakeholders -- coaches, administrators, health professionals, etc. -- to determine if, and when, it is safe to get our youth basketball players back on the courts. We are reviewing all the logistics involved and putting plans together to be ready to proceed when circumstances allow us to do so.
I will provide communication out to our youth players and parents before the end of September, including a preliminary registration for eventual resumption of basketball activities. I will continue to provide regular updates as to where we stand through this spot on our website.
In the meantime, the best thing players can do is to continue to work out on their own to whatever extent they are able. Ball handling drills and conditioning can be done at home every day. If you're looking for some guidance on drills, there are dozens available on You-Tube. If you have a hoop at home -- get some shots up, and focus on form, not volume. Spend time watching the game as well. There are NBA and WNBA games on TV -- watch to learn the game and improve basketball IQ.
Thanks to all for your patience and understanding...I'm looking forward to seeing you all very soon!
Note: If you have an interest in coaching in our program this season, please drop me an e-mail at email@example.com. In particular, we will need coaches for our incoming 3rd Grade group.
