A-Boys Basketball (8th grade)

Winter 2016-2017 season
A-Boys Basketball News and Announcements:
Dear 8th grade team and parents,
The A-Boys first practice will be Thursday, November 17th in the Gym at 6:15-7:45pm. I will not get the game schedule until November 14th so I do not know which day or times we will play games. Please keep in mind that the practice schedule could change after the league sends us the game schedule. Coach Jackson requested that we practice on Monday's, Thursdays and Fridays. On Mondays, the A-Boys get an early practice from 3:15pm-4:45pm. On Thursday, they will practice later from 6:15pm-7:45pm and on Fridays the team will practice from 4:45pm-6:15pm. If your child cannot attend a game or practice, please send an email in advance to so that we are aware of your child's situation. Thank you and GO SAINTS!

Parents picking up players from Practice
Players are not allowed to wait in front of the school for their ride after practices or games
Parents must come in the gym to pick up their child after practice. Players can not leave the gym until their parent comes in the gym to pick them up, or they are sent to daycare.
For convenience, parents can park in the back by the gym and come through the back doors of the gym to pick up their child. 

Arriving on time to Home and Away Games
For games that are at 3:45pm all players need to get to the game ASAP
For later games players need to be at the site of the game 30 minutes before game timeIf for some reason a player can't be there 30 minutes before the game, the player must let the coach know ahead of time.

Carpooling to Away Games
Parents are responsible to get their child to any away games, either by driving them or making carpool arrangements with another parent. In the past parents have e-mailed each other and set up carpools to the away games. Parents that are driving to the games should pick up their group in the parking lot or meet them in the gym. After the game parents pick up their own child or make arrangements for a ride. Coaches are not allowed to drive players. Parent/Coaches of a student at Saint Andrew's are the only exception to this rule.

Cheering for your Team
When at a game as a fan, both students and parents are encouraged to cheer for their team in a positive way. Fans should not vocally criticize the officials, the players, or the coaches from the stands. Fans should stay in the stands or in the area of the stands during the game.  Students and parents are not allowed near the team benches or scorers table during a game, unless asked by the coach or the athletic director. If a fan has to walk along either base line during the game, please be courteous and wait until play has stopped or the ball is on the other end of the court, so you do not interfere with the game.

Practice and Game Schedule Calendar
The calendar below is a weekday schedule of practices and games. Each weekday will either say Practice, Home Game, Away Game, Off, or No School. If there is a weekday not listed on the calendar, please figure that there is at least a practice and use the team e-mail address to contact the Coaches and AD, so we can correct the problem.
Game only Calendar
