Update OCT 28
October 28, 2013By Timothy Bowdern of CNR Winter Basketball
Sorry so late in the week but we schedule literally every free minute we have and facilities and teams seem to change everyday. We are on schedule to release the first draft as mentioned before on November 15th if not a bit earlier. There are a few new items so if you have other questions you need to access earlier e-mails on our website at www.cnrbasketball.com. Here are the main new points to make:
5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Coach Brad Soderberg will be conducting their practice at the Hyland Arena. You are invited to come in at anytime and watch a Division II Men's practice which I know would benefit any coach of any grade or gender to watch.
7:00 - 7:45 p.m. Coach Soderberg and the girl's coach Tony Francis will address the coaches and use their players to conduct a clinic geared towards your teams. They agreed to do demonstration drills that all teams of all ages can use in their practice to create development of skills. They will also take questions and Tony Wagganer (Assitant AD) will inform you how to bring your team to the game and be recognized or possible play after the game. We will finish by doing a drawing for two free CNR games for a boy's and girl's team right after he is finished talking. We will cut-off registration at 7:15 p.m. for the drawing.
7:45 - 8:30 p.m. We will then do our Rules Meeting. Topics to be discussed is scheduling, code of conduct, officiating, cancellations, rules and rule changes (if any), league paperwork to turn in, incident reports for coaches (how to report complaints), the new website, and a Q and A session. Anything you need answered will be addressed so you get out of the meeting what you need. We will not be doing a Q and A with our supervisor of officials. We are doing that a different way in early November. You do not have to have payment in to attend the meeting but can write a post-dated check to your first game if you want to.
I have more but need to get to football practice and get next week's agenda in motion and back to scheduling. Next Monday already I will have a new update out with the proposed rule changes you can vote on. You will have till next Friday to cast your vote by e-mail. There will be one vote per one team officially entered into the league. I hope everyone enjoys a Mizzou win, Cardinal victories, a Blues sweep starting tonight, finished by a Rams upset of the year on Monday Night Football. I know I am reaching there on the last one but you can still hope. Have a great weekend, Scott.
