“Play Smarter” Summer League

Hello Parents, from Coach Marquis and our “Play Smarter” Basketball Staff

I wanted to explain how we will conduct and play our summer league competition and training development program. We will be starting on Tuesday, June 11 at: 6:30 and 7:30 PM for our upper levels, 12 years and older. This is our A divisions.

For our younger kids ages 9 to 12 years old, our B Division will begin on Thursday evenings, starting from June 13 at: 6:30 PM and 7:30 PM games each week, (As usual Game shirts will be provided).

Our summer league games and training has been designed totally for our own “Play Smarter” class students to maximize our kid’s development. However, we are inviting a couple of teams from San Gabriel Academy School to participate.

Here are some of the differences;

Coach Marquis will be on the floor working with both the referee and your child’s bench coach to insure that our students can and will receive a lot more attention and guidance to help accelerate their personal understanding of how they should play on both offense and defense throughout the games.
The games will be run using (4) 8 min. quarters and referee scoreboard will be provided.
We also want to teach our students responsibility so, if your child forgets or has no team shirt, they will not be allowed to play in the games or they can purchase a second shirt at: SGA in order to play and the cost will be $12.00.
The last two teams to play must help clean and put all of our parent’s chairs away and this will be rotated from week to week.
Parents, please remember this program is totally built around your child’s development, not winning or losing, so please be encouraging and positive.
In the beginning, we will interrupting the game to teach the students, but as the students grow in their knowledge as the competition progress, we will be able to let the games continue without interruption.
MAN and ZONE defenses will be taught and played throughout the games.
First half ZONE defense and the second half will be MAN to MAN defense only.
8. Fresh clean cold water and cups for each game played for our kids will be provided plus we will have a medical kit at all games.

Hello again parents of our Play Smarter Classes,
This is a notice to all parents; As some of you have notice, our two classes have become too crowed because of the unexpected close of our Alhambra Emmaus Class due to construction of replacing and installing the new gym floor and renovation as well. We have now learned that it may be longer then we were precisely thought. Maybe, another month or even longer. So we are adding a new Sunday morning class from 10 AM – 12:00 Noon at: San Gabriel Academy. We believe this new morning class will lead to fewer kids in each of our other classes.
Also, as usual our students can move between all of our classes instead of canceling their regular class day or time.
1. New Sunday morning class will begin on Sunday morning this May, 11
2. Time: well be: 10:00 AM until 12:00 Noon. Location: San Gabriel Academy (8827 E Broadway. San Gabriel. CA 91776)
If you have more questions, please feel free to contact me at my cell phone number 626-482-8267.
Thank you
Coach Marquis
