Richmond Youth Basketball

 It is almost basketball season again!

Basketball season is just around the corner and Coach Joe Luce wants to see how we are structuring things in the Richmond Youth Basketball League.  Again this year the Richmond Boy’s and Girl’s Basketball coaching staffs will team up to offer a basketball league for all interested players in Preschool through 6th grade.  The league will serve as the youth basketball program for Richmond Community Schools and will be organized and run by Joe Luce (Richmond boy’s coach), Casey Pohlenz (Richmond girl’s coach) and their coaching staffs.

          The Richmond Youth Basketball League is for everyone!!  Players of all talents and experiences are encouraged to sign-up.  Everyone will have an opportunity to play and learn about the game of basketball.  Players will be placed on teams based on the school they attend.   All players will have a team to play on!  The celebration of victory and the agony of defeat will be shared by all, but the emphasis of fundamentals will be the main focus.

          Coaches will be selected and monitored by Coach Luce and Coach Pohlenz.  Coaches will be responsible for scheduling and conducting practices (maximum 2 per week) throughout the year as well as attending a pre-season coaching clinic and monthly coaching meetings throughout the season.  All practices and games will be geared towards learning the fundamentals of the game, as well as competing in a competitive manner to improve individual and team skills.
