Crusader Basketball Try-outs

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

The Athletic Dept. is excited about the upcoming Crusader basketball season. Mark Fruitt and Palmer Albertine will coach the team. 

TRY-OUTS: Try-outs for the Crusader basketball team will be held on Monday, October 28th from 3:30–5:30pm and Tuesday, October 29th from 3:30–5:30pm in the PDS gym. Boys should be picked up at the main entrance at 5:30pm. Try-outs will be closed to all parents and spectators.

The Crusader basketball team is designed for boys who want additional opportunities for basketball practice and games. However, playing time is not guaranteed. While it will be more intense and competitive than our intramural basketball program, it will be consistent with our philosophy and high standards relating to sportsmanship and keeping athletics within a proper framework.

Assuming that more boys try out than the 10 spots available for the team, we will have to make cuts (unlike Crusader football). Before try-outs, we will talk to the boys about their attitudes and responses to the selection process. We hope and think that our 6th grade boys are mature enough to handle the disappointments that some of them may experience by not being chosen. Boys that play Crusader Basketball are also encouraged to play in the Intramural league. The two programs do not conflict. Looking forward to a great season!

Thanks,
Dennis Smith
Director of Athletics and Operations
