The fun and exciting Mahtomedi Basketball Association Coaches Clinic will be held on Thursday, Sept 25th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm at the Mahtomedi Middle School.
New this year-we will also be requiring our Traveling Head Coaches and strongly encourage our Inhouse Head Coaches to attend a Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop on either Thursday, Oct 2nd or Thursday, Oct 9th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm at Chautauqua. Assistant Coaches for both Traveling and In-House are also strongly encouraged to attend one of the sessions. The workshop is called “Double-Goal Coach®: Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons”- and introduces PCA’s Double-Goal Coach model and presents research from experts in coaching, education and sports psychology. Every participant gains access to dozens of practical, proven tools. The workshop provides an in-depth exploration of the three principles of Positive Coaching: Honoring the Game, Filling Emotional Tanks and the ELM Tree of Mastery
Mahtomedi Basketball Association is excited to announce a change to the format of our program for in-house grades 3-6. We will move all of our in-house teams to the Maplewood League (where our 7/8th graders have been for the last few years) and will be able to maintain single grade teams for all of the programs for which we had single grade level teams previously. For additional details please follow this link.
If your son or daughter, grades 3-8, wants to play basketball this year please sign him or her up ASAP. (Registration link is below.) Some important dates are listed here:
· September 30 – In-house registration deadline
· Week of October 13 – Target for announcement of in-house rosters and practice times
· Week of October 27 – In-house practices begin
Registration for youth (grades K-2) and High school rec (grades 9-12) will be starting later this fall.
