Kennesaw Mountain Lady Mustangs Basketball
January 16, 2015
Dear Mustang Family,
As our respective seasons begin to wind into the final month, I wanted to take an opportunity to reach out to the parents and players of our future Lady Mustangs regarding the off-season. In Cobb County and Region 4-AAAAAA, we are blessed to compete against some of the top players and teams in the state on a nightly basis. With that comes great opportunity, but also the necessity to put in appropriate work to prepare ourselves to compete at a high level. In this letter, I would like to outline a few upcoming opportunities that could benefit our youth players in preparing to help on the high school level in the future.
My goal would be for every player in our Lady Mustang program, from high school all the way down, to play basketball on a regular basis throughout the year. With this in mind, I strongly encourage all players to find an AAU/YBOA team that they can participate on. We have a number of AAU/YBOA teams in the Cobb County area that offer teams each Spring. Players can typically play somewhere between 30-40 games in an AAU/YBOA season as well as getting regular practices and other opportunities to develop their skills in the process. Taken from a long term view, these additional basketball experiences allow for tremendous off-season growth for players of all ages and I strongly encourage any player planning to play in high school to begin playing on the AAU/YBOA circuit as early as they can. If you need any help finding a team, you are welcome to contact me or any of the coaches on my staff to help point you in the best direction.
I also understand that not everyone is able to fit an AAU/YBOA team into their schedule and/or budget, so this Spring we will be offering our first year of Lady Mustang Skill Development Clinics. Starting on Tuesday, March 3rd, we will be leading skill development sessions for any interested girls, grades 1-8. Our sessions will be every Tuesday and Thursday from March 3-May 15 (with the exception of the week of Spring Break), running from 6:30-8:00 pm. The clinics will be broken up into two segments, an hour devoted to skill development and thirty minutes for playing in pick-up style games to gain game experience. The cost will be $150 per player and I will lead each clinic, assisted as needed by my assistant coaches, current and former high school players, and/or other basketball community representatives.
Overall, these clinics offer a great opportunity for me to work with and get to know our future players as well as for individual players to develop their basketball skills and make new friendships. On the back of this letter you will find a flyer with our full schedule for the clinics and additional information about how they will run. If you are planning to sign up, it would be a great help to pre-register (form attached) or shoot me an email to let me know you plan to come (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can figure out how much help I will need running the clinics. We will also happily take walk-up registrations at the door on March 3rd if that option works best for you.
I look forward to working with each of you, and please let me know if there is any way I can be of assistance in helping our future Lady Mustangs prepare for their high school basketball experience.

Accident Avoidance Workshops
Driver trainin’ the way it ought’a be!
Question: If there was a captivating program you could attend with your student, that would reduce the likelihood of them being involved in an accident by more than 75%, would you attend? And if so, how much would that be worth to you? How does less than ½ of your insurance deductible sound?
Whether building confidence in new drivers, or knocking the hot-rods down a few pegs, the Accident Avoidance Workshops’ goal is to save lives by positively impacting new drivers’ development, in both their decision making abilities and the physical skills necessary to maximize on their own vehicle’s capabilities without losing control of their vehicle, or themselves.
The Workshops are coming to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this June and spaces will go quick! Click here for more information and for a complete schedule, or call 770-262-7009. If you are ready to register you may click here.
