Thank you all who came out to the evaluations this week. We had a great turnout which created some very difficult discussions. It looked like many of the boys continued to develop their skills over the summer and I see great things in Canby's basketball future!
With such competition, there will undoubtedly be a few people from each grade that feels like they should of been put on a higher level. Your concerns are warranted but I assure you that not only myself but all of CJB analyzed every angle before constructing these teams. When constructing a team we look at more than just talent. For example your boy might be the 7th best player in his grade - but only the 3rd best point guard. Do we put him on A knowing that his playing time will be limited and that the team will suffer with a heavy guard rotation? Putting him on a B team would increase his playing time - he will benefit more from learning how to carry the scoring load, leading a team and having the ball in their hands during critical situations. When constructing a team, it comes down to putting your child in the best position for them to succeed.
We had over 120 boys to place in various teams and grades, combine this with the fact that no players were cut equals a great few days of tryouts!
With that being said Id like to introduce the CJB 2019-2020 teams.
Coaches will be assigned after interviews.
I will be available to answer any questions or concerns - all I ask is that you take the next few days to process the information before firing off an email. I along with all CJB board members are volunteers who also work so please be patient on response times......
Thank you and good luck this season!
