Tip-Off Time!

Dear CTK Coaches and Families,

Welcome to another exciting year of Christ the King CYO Basketball! I hope that you are all enjoying the program so far and are as excited as I am with several teams playing their first league games this weekend. I know the kids are working hard and are eager to lace up their shoes and get going!

We are very fortunate to have such a strong program filled with great volunteers. I want to thank everyone for all their time and efforts. The countless hours coaches and parents put into this program never ceases to amaze.  This ministry would not be a success without all of you.  Thank you!

For those of you who were able to attend one of the CYO masses this past weekend, the message was clear. Success for our program will not be based on winning.  Rather the positive experience the kids will enjoy will come from being a part of a team, learning new skills and demonstrating good sportsmanship. To me, if these goals are met, then we’ve all done our job well.

Some final thoughts as we prepare for game time:

  • Please cheer, and cheer appropriately.  Not just for our kids, but for the other teams as well.
  • Support your teams, your coaches, the referees and the fans.  You are all part of the game and it should be a positive experience for everyone!
  • Remember, this ministry is about the children.  Let them enjoy the spirit of competition and teamwork.

I look forward to watching as many games as I can this season and to all the success ahead! Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime during the season.

Go CTK!

Regards,
Allen Brezac

New: 2015 Christ the King Summer Mini Camps

Christ the King CYO Basketball Summer Clinics: REGISTER HERE

Philosophy

The purpose of the Christ the King CYO basketball clinics is to keep our parish children active in basketball during the off season and to help improve and develop fundamental skills essential to the sport. We believe this will help kids have more success during the CYO season and make playing and participating in CYO basketball more fun.

This program is for FOR BOYS and GIRLS GRADES 3 – 8

Each Session will be broken up for three groups of boys and girls and will last approximately one hour. Time slots per grade are follow:

3rd and 4th grade – 4:00-5:00PM
5th and 6th grade – 5:15-6:15PM
7th and 8th grade – 6:30 – 7:30PM

The dates for the clinics will be the following:

July  26
August 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
September 6, 13

COST:

$80 for all Summer Camps
Please note because of space, we will cap the program at 40 players per group.

WEEKLY SESSIONS TO DEVELOP AND IMPROVE BASKETBALL FUNDAMENTALS

The format for month to month will stay the same. As the summer advances, the program will get progressively more advanced.  For example: July 26 will be ball handling and passing, but will feature more advanced skills including one-one-one and pick & roll drills. There will be a review at the beginning of each to help ensure each player has an understanding of drills taught the previous week.

Clinic Instructors will be certified CYO coaches and parish volunteers who are part of the Christ the King CYO program. Program sessions will cover the following:
– Ball Handling, Passing
– Shooting Drills
– Defensive Technique
– Team/Position Play
