Hello and Welcome to the 5th Grade Girls Black Travel Season!
My name is Ryan McGetrick (Molly's father) and I am the head coach. We are lucky to have four amazing assistant coaches - Geoff Wheeler, Andy Schneider, Alison Keating, and Brian Bodner. Many thanks to them for stepping up and helping out.
This is my first year coaching travel, but have coached for/against many of these girls in the Rec League, and know a few others from various other sports. I am thrilled to be working with these girls, and can't wait for the season to start.
Our first practice is this Wednesday, November 6 from 6 - 7:30 pm at Jeffrey School. I realize this is short notice and that your daughter may have conflicts. Please send me an email and let me know if you will be able to make practice Wednesday. If your daughter cannot make it for any reason, no problem at all.
Next week we will practice Monday and Wednesday at 5pm at Country School.
From what I understand, practices times will be fluid all season. They may change week-to-week depending on gym time. I understand that this makes planning ahead more difficult, so I'll try my best to communicate our practice/game times as early as possible to you.
For practice, your girls will need good basketball sneakers, a size 28.5 ball, and water.
We are looking to play our first tournament Nov 23 & 24. I should be able to confirm this soon but please put it on your family calendar.
We will also be playing in Newport, RI on MLK weekend. Details to follow on that.
You should have already gotten a reminder about the first practice. If not, I suggest you sign up on the Madison Youth Basketball website and check your notifications. There is also a companion app that is very helpful for game/practice time changes and game locations.
If you have not ordered your uniform yet, please do so ASAP as these orders take some time.
Let me know if you have any questions.
