GIRLS BANTAM TRYOUTS 2020

TRYOUTS CANCELED FOR THIS SEASON

Due to the unprecedented times of COVID-19 and the effect it is having on our schools and athletic programs, we are canceling our Bantam tryouts for this year. We were hoping that we could continue with tryouts and be back to some semblance of normalcy; however, things have not gone as smooth as we were hoping. We are truly sorry for this.  The uncertainty of the current environment makes it impossible to continue our bantam program as normal for this upcoming year.

The Bantam League still may continue, but we are only unable to manage the teams this year. Parents, we are leaving it up to you to assemble and manage the teams. If you would like to assemble a team, we can help with posting your necessary information on our site and through our email list.

Please contact Coach Doug Nielsen with any questions. Email at coach@brightongirlsbasketball.com

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any gym space this year.

Sorry again for this unexpected turn of events.

Brighton Basketball Camp: LOCATION CHANGE–ALBION MIDDLE SCHOOL

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. CAMP NUMBERS HAVE BEEN REACHED. SEE THE CAMP TAB IN THE MENU FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

1. LOCATION CHANGE: Camp will be at Albion Middle School.
2. Grades 7-8 are first, going from 9-10:30 AM. Grades 4-6 will go 10:30-noon. We will have some signs helping you line up the kids, appropriately distancing. I’m sure the line will look like a mile long. Once the first session is over they will exit out the back doors. Some players will escort them back to the front of the building.
3. My BHS players will bring them in 4 at a time. We have 14 hoops. We will put max 4 at a hoop.
4. BRING A WATER BOTTLE. The players will not rotate stations, etc. They will stay at the same hoop the entire time. Their water bottle needs to be there.
5. It is recommended to bring your own basketball. Not necessary. Just recommended. Maybe highly recommended.
6. As mentioned before. We won’t be able to scrimmage or run “contact” drills. Don’t worry, I’ll still work these kids and get those scholarships ready for you.
7. I will not gather them together. All demonstrations will be in the middle of the gym where all kids can see.
8. CHECK IN CHANGE: Sorry you don’t get that new pen I promised you. To keep it as contactless as possible, one of my players will mark off the kids once the camp has started.

Euro makes dramatic return!

Cottonwood Heights- The rumors are true. Step aside Holy Roman Empire, back off First British Empire, “let them eat what did you say?”… there’s a new revolution in town folks. 

After the Euro had officially been banned from all BHS related activities, which included: shop, baking, geometry, and basketball, Annabelle Warner, against all odds, brought the house down in dramatic fashion on Thursday night with her signature move.

It shall henceforth be known in Bengaldom simply as “Heuro”. Yes, the perfected female version of the Euro. Three times more deadly than it’s male counterpart, mostly because it does not forgive without discussion, will sacrifice the move’s finish for the sake of understanding (which in this case are broken ankles), is not sidelined by the common cold, and most importantly-can be pulled off while multitasking any other non-related task to perfection.

The revolution is here folks and it’s not going away. A section of the post game audio has been posted here as well as the BHS play by play call of Warner’s deadly advance.
