Menlo Park has the opportunity through the efforts of an incoming Kindergarten (2011-2012 school year) parent to participate in the West Suburban boys’ Basketball League with a team of 5/6th grade boys representing Menlo Park.
Willie Littlejohn has been coaching boys’ basketball for many years as a volunteer, winning “Coach of the Year” last season.
Willie has obtained his employer, Sunnyside Audi, as a sponsor for the program and most of the cost will be covered by their donation (including cost of uniforms). Depending on practice facilities there may be a small cost incurred by parents.
Practices will be twice per week beginning the end of October. Season runs through end of February. Games will be on Saturdays at locations on the Westside of Cleveland (Middleburg Hts, Fairview Park, Midpark High School, Brookpark, N.Olmsted)
We are currently working with the YMCA West Park branch to utilize their facility for practices as they are in close proximity to Menlo Park school.
All boys interested in participating will need to tryout. There will be 11 spots on the team roster and all boys who make the team will play.
Over the course of the summer, we will host a clinic for skill building and have a meeting for parents and students to meet the coach and ask questions.
A registration form for the basketball team was included in last week's family e-mail. For more information please contact:
