St Paul

2009-2010 CYO Girls 6th / 7th Grade Basketball


ST PAUL 6TH - 7TH Girls Basketball Team

for taking 3rd Place in the CYO Post season Tournament

We Called it THIRD TIME IS A CHARM. That is because we were set to play Lawrence - Chorpus Christi for the third time this season. The two previous meetings with this team, we did not do so well and lost both of those games. Well, each game in Post Season Play is a new time period for all of the players. Nothing that they did in the earlier games mattered. It was all about what you could do in this new game.
As the coach, I told the girls that we were playing in our house now, St Paul gymnasium, and that this was our 3rd time is a charm chance to let Chorpus Christi know that we can play basketball with the best teams in our tournament. I also told them that I knew in my heart that they could win the game if they just gave 100% out on the floor for 24 minutes. I could not be more proud of nine fine young ladies. They definately gave it everything they had and we received a few bumps and bruises along the way. But, the taste of victory was worth it for them and for the stress they put me under during the game. I love them all, they are true stars in their own right. I am blessed to have been allowed to coach them. Coach Joe

Goals and Practice

The number one goal of the CYO program is to provide a environment for the players to learn the basic fundementals of the game and build a sense of team play. My goal as coach is to provide the best opportunity for each player to capitalize on their strengths and to provide assistance and guidance in areas that they need to work on to make them a well rounded player.

Things to Learn

St SabastianPatron Saint of athletes because of his physical endurance and his energetic way of spreading and defending the Faith . When it was discovered that Sebastian was a Christian, he was ordered executed. He was shot with arrows and left for dead, but when the widow of St. Castulus went to recover his body, she found he was still alive and nursed him back to health. Soon after, Sebastian intercepted the Emperor, denounced him for his cruelty to Christians, and was beaten to death on the Emperor's orders. (information gathered from Catholic Online Feast Day is January 20th
Prayer of the way to PeaceFather of love, hear my prayer. Help me to know Your Will and to do it with courage and faith. Accept my offering of myself, all my thoughts, words, deeds, and sufferings. May my life be spent giving You glory. Give me the strength to follow Your call, so that Your Truth may live in my heart and bring peace to me and to those I meet, for I believe in Your Love..

Practice Goals This Week

Jab StepUse a short jab step, or drive step, with your non-pivot foot. Jab the foot forward quickly, hold for 1 second and judge the defender's reaction.
Triple Threat Position1. Catch the ball and get squared up to the basket so you can see the basket, the defender and any open teammates. 2. Have your hands positioned on the ball in the shooting position, so you are ready to shoot. 3. Keep your weight back on your pivot foot.
Cutting and FakingGood scorers never just stand around and watch. They are always trying to find ways to get open by coming off screens, or faking and cutting to open areas of the floor (within their shooting range). The keys are timing, cutting to open areas, setting good screens, and maintaining good spacing. In regard to cutting, there is a saying "get open, or get out!", which means that if you are not open, or don't receive the ball within a couple seconds, move out and maintain motion and spacing. Passing is easier if offensive players maintain a spacing of 12 to 15 feet apart. Don't get bunched up.
