The Howard School Basketball Program
The weather is getting cooler and you know what that means, it's almost time for BASKETBALL SEASON at Howard! We are very excited about the upcoming season.
As you may know, Howard alum and former basketball player and coach, Will Long, has moved on to the college ranks. We appreciate everything he did for this program and wish him much success at Reinhardt University. We hope to continue the work that he began as the Head Coach of this great program. We do not take this opportunity lightly and will strive to continue to develop our young student-athletes both on and off the court. With that being said, there will be some expectations put in place in order to continue to help our young men develop both in the classroom and on the court:
1. Grades - This is non-negotiable. We stress the importance of STUDENT in “student-athlete.” We expect our young men to be on time for class, get all work done, and strive for success in their academics.
2. Study Hall - The practice schedule for this year is designed to help the student athlete be successful in the classroom. When we have late practices or games, there will be a mandatory team study hall. This is a time where our student athletes can get homework done as well as ask teachers for assistance. For early morning practices and games that require us to leave early, we will not conduct our team study hall.
3. Practice Attendance – We cannot stress enough the importance of attendance at practice on a daily basis. Practice attendance will be kept, so if your child needs to miss a practice, we will require a PARENT to contact us via email or phone for verification. We will do our best to set the practice schedule early enough in advance to avoid confusion or conflict.
4. Effort and Fun – This is a sport that we all love and want to enjoy for many seasons to come. As a coaching staff, we just ask for effort from all of our players. Effort in both the classroom and on the court will make fun inevitable while playing this great sport. This will help make our time together as enjoyable as possible.
Your high flyin’ Howard Hawks are looking forward to another successful season!
