2014 Fifth Grade Basketball

The fifth grade Panthers had an extremely successful season. Their overall record was 8-1 with the only loss of the season coming in a close match against an all-sixth grade team. In fifth grade basketball a large emphasis is placed on teamwork, sportsmanship and skill development. Of course, it is always nice to be competitive, but at this age level it is most important that we teach the boys how to play the game properly. This team has the fundamental skills to be successful in the upcoming years. We had 29 players on the team. Our greatest success was having all players receive significant playing time in games and enjoying the wins as a team. This group of boys IS extremely talented and enthusiastic about the sport. The team was focused during practice sessions and thus well-prepared come game day. Throughout our nine-game season, we steadily improved as individual players and as a team. – Coach Matthew Brown
