Corona Virus and Spring Basketball UPDATE

Hello everyone,  due to the mass concern about the corona virus we thought it prudent to let you know what is happening with spring basketball. As of now there is no regular season, that being said, we are still hoping by the time our GCSO tournament is scheduled we will be able to play. As of now if you choose to get a refund please send an email with your players full name and I will process the refund to the card used to pay the registration. there is a $15.00 fee for the processing of the refunds charged by our 3rd party billing that is unavoidable.

The High School Girls AA team will be waiting to see how our tournament schedule  plays out as we have tournament scheduled for later than the rest of the Grads teams.

The U15AA team is currently deciding as a team to do the same process as the High School Girls AA team.

We thank you all for your support and if any new information comes out we will be posting it here. 

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me at gradsbball@gmail.com

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
