Practice for basketball is daily (Mon – Fri). There will be an early practice 4:20 – 5:50 and late practice 5:50 – 8:15 Players must be gone by 8:20. Players will be expected to be at games and practices every day unless absent from school or during holidays if he is out of town. The girls and boys teams alternate each week having early or late practice. There will be a study hall on days we have late practice and players are required to attend. This time will be spent studying and for homework. It is important that you bring food to eat if you have the late practice since you will not get home until after 8:15 pm.
Discipline: Discipline problems will not be tolerated on our basketball teams. We expect all players to represent Dutchtown Middle in an honorable way. Players will be given a consequence such as running or pushing carpet squares if they choose to break school rules and maybe benched or removed from the team.
