Tell us about practice times and locations?
Practices for the 2010 school year will be at Mountain Ridge Middle School, 10590 Mountain vista Ridge, Highlands Ranch. CO 80126, adjacent to Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch. Practices are scheduled from 6:00pm to 8:00 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. If Douglas County Schools are not open on the day of practice, then Colorado Gold practice will be cancelled as well.
Practices will consist of a lot of shooting and fundamentals. Goal is to learn to play hard, smart and develop an attitude of never giving up.
What are the costs associated with being a member of the Colorado Gold?
Currently the costs are as follows: tryout fee $20, returning players $10, and monthly dues are $75. The only other costs associated with Colorado Gold will be fees associated with participation in basketball tournaments or leagues. The membership fees pays for the addition of the player on the club insurance policy. The monthly dues pay for the coaches, gym time, ongoing insurance, the web site, etc. There will be no refunds. We are a non-profit organization.
Can you tell us about tryouts?
Tryouts will take place on March 17, 22 and 29nd of 2010, or just stop in to one of our practices to see if we or you are a good fit.
There will be two sessions, Spring and Summer. Number of tournaments will be determined by coach. Spring will be April and May. Summer will be June and July. June tournaments are limited for High School players, to give them opportunity to play with their High School Teams.
Can you tell us about the special Saturday practices?
On some selected Saturdays, we will have special practices where invited guests will come in and lecture and run practice. These guests will include college coaches, high school coaches and former players. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to learn the game from other knowledgeable basketball minds. We will also schedule scrimmages against other teams on Saturdays. There are no additional costs associated with these Saturday sessions.
Are parents allowed in the gym during practices?
Parents are welcome to sit in on practice. However, since practice is “teaching time” we would ask that parents communicate with each other in quietly and if necessary go out into the hall to answer cell phones, etc. We would also ask parents to not interrupt or visit with their daughters during practice, except if there is an emergency, so that their daughters can concentrate on practice and the coaching staff.
Will the coaches work with me on an individual basis?
If you want more individual time with one of the coaches, please email the coaches. The cost for individual instruction is $45. Small groups can also be arranged.
Will I get feedback on my progress as a member of Colorado Gold?
Our goal is to give you periodic evaluations on those basketball skills that need the most focus in order to make you an all-around basketball player.
