By Alysia Grimes: 

The FHE Hawks boy’s middle school basketball team is gearing up for this year’s season and we would love to have your ball player join the team! (The team is for rising 6-8 graders, but may include the occasional younger 9th grader or older rising 5th grader, depending on their birthday.) We have several returning players and hope to add a few more! We are fast, but especially need to add some height to the lineup. JT Grimes will be returning as Head Coach.

We would like to invite your players to the Jerry Long YMCA in Clemmons from 1:00-3:00 pm this Friday (July 27) for an opportunity to shoot around, scrimmage a little, and get to know each other. This isn’t an official practice and Coach Grimes won’t be there, but I will be the “adult in charge.” Any parents are welcome to stay as well. You don’t have to be a member of the YMCA to play on Friday; they allow several free visits each year. You’ll just need to arrive about 10 minutes early and fill out a guest pass with some contact information. IF YOU PLAN TO BRING YOUR PLAYER ON FRIDAY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

Tryouts will be held in late September with practice starting in mid-October and games starting in mid-November. The team usually plays about 2 games per week and perhaps one additional practice. Practice location is still TBD.

If you have a player who is interested in playing, please email me directly so I can make sure you receive upcoming information on tryouts and practices.
