Thank you everyone who came out to the girls evaluations this week. We had a great turnout which created some very difficult discussions. It looked like many of the girls 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 feel like they should have been put on a higher level. Your concerns are warranted but I assure you that all of our CJB board and evaluators analyzed every angle before constructing these teams. When constructing a team we look at more than just talent. For example your daughter might be the 7th best player in her grade - but only the 3rd best point guard. Do we put her on A knowing that her playing time will be limited and that the team will suffer with a heavy guard rotation? Putting her on a B team would increase her playing time - she will benefit more from learning how to carry the scoring load, leading a team and having the ball in her hands during critical situations. When constructing a team, it comes down to putting your child in the best position possible for her to succeed and improve over the course of the season.
We had around 100 girls to place on various teams throughout the various grade levels. We brought in external evaluators to complement our community evaluators, and pored over the data. Combine the numbers and the effort of our evaluators to make intentional decisions, with the fact that no players were cut, and we feel like we've had a great few days of tryouts!
With that being said Id like to introduce the CJB 2018-2019 Girls teams.
Coaches will be assigned after interviews on 10/10/18.
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. All of the CJB board members (myself included) are volunteers who also work, so please be patient on response times......
Thank you and good luck this season!
