Fall High School Girls Tournament And Practice Time

 

Hello everyone,

Hope you had a great summer, Just letting everyone know that there is a High School Girls Tournament this October. we are looking for players that would like to come and get a few games in before the High School season starts. The team we bring down is open to all High School age Girls in the area, first preference is to last springs Grads players but all are welcome. The fee is $50.00 and covers Hotel and Breakfast in Calgary. We will be needing parent drivers to keep the cost as low as we can. 

Please email me at gradsbball@gmail.com if you are interested in participating. this does not effect which team you play for next spring or for which coach, this is just a chance to meet new players and get some court time before the High School season. 

Practice for the Tournament is on September 25 from 7:30-9:30pm at Dancereau Meadows School in Beaumont 5907 Rue Eaglemont 

Kind regards 

Gerald Bleau

President  E.G.Y.B.A

Knee pads They Work!!!!

Girls playing ball don't take care of their knees! 

Over My 32 years of coaching one thing I ask all my players to invest in is knee pads, but time and time again they don't listen due to a number of reasons but none of them are legit!

  • I can't find them
  • I look stupid wearing them 
  • I never fall down
  • I don"t need them

None of these are reasons not to invest in your safety and ability to play hard!!

Knee pads can be found in major sports stores and on line ranging in price from  $11.00 to $80.00......personally the difference between them isn't great so the cheaper the better. 

Nobody Cares what you look like on the court!

Safety is paramount when playing any sport especially a sport played on a hard surface and in full contact with your opponent. 

Knee pads will allow you to hit the floor when diving for loose balls or get flung from an aggressive jump ball battles, and those knee on knee collisions that happen when you don't expect them to.

GET A PAIR PLAY HARDER THAN YOU EVER HAVE BEFORE!!!!!

Amazon has them as low as $9.99 right now!!! (long sleeved and compression are the same as the Mazuno)

Same ones that United Cycle carries for $70.00 online at Amazon they are $36.00
