5th Grade Skills Academy
The Lexington Catholic basketball program would like to announce the creation of the 5th Grade Skills Academy. In lieu of having a 5th grade team we will be creating a skills academy. The 5th graders, as well as some 4th graders, will work two days a week with the varsity teams skills coach, Mike Stone. Coach Stone has extensive experience working with players of all ages in skill development. The schedule will but most likely will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:30-9:00 before the high school season starts then will vary depending on gym availability. We will schedule a few games with school teams and possibly one or two tournaments. The team will receive the same middle school uniforms as the 6-8 Teams. The fee for the team will be $250. The workouts will run from October 1st until Jan 31st (approximately 30 workouts). We are planning on the games being during this time period as well. Our plan is to assess the number of players and make a determination if we will need to limit the number of players. We hope to have 10-15 players. If we have over that number we will try to find extra games for other players. We would like to allow all that want to be a part and learn from Coach Stone to be able to. In games, there will be no guarantee of playing time. Coach Jorge Lancho will coach the team, during games and any team practices. Our hope is that through the skill development portion your son will be more ready to help the middle school teams as they advance in age. If a 5th grader is developed enough he may be asked to join the 6th grade team and play with their team. Most of our Varsity players came through our middle school program and we hope this opportunity will help players develop into high school players for Lexington Catholic.
