GIRLS OPEN GYM TRAINING & EVALUATION
TONITE (WED 7-8:30pm @ Patriot Oaks Academy Gym)
We currently have had a group of about 18-20, 10-15yr old girls participating over the last 3 weeks in training and evaluation sessions and we started officially registering players into the Blue Chip Elite Girls Intense Development Player Pool Program’s team app like we have with our successful boys program.
We are able to start the program because there seems to be enough interest in our community to support a girls basketball development program and we have what appears to be long term (5+ year) commitments to support it by:
Coach Christian Laettner (click for info)
Coach Megan Harpring-Wheeler (click for info)
Coach Jesus Rodriguez (click for info)
The program will be structured the same as the boys. Even though it can include a mix of Elite and Developmental level players, it is very rigorous and is not for the meek. Players who do not respond well to disciplined instruction, stern positive and negative evaluation should look to other programs.
The general BCE player pool outline is:
A 1-2 hour weekly player pool practice available year-round. If the pool is less than 24 players they train and will get invites to play club v club games and will scrimmage interclub.
When the pool is at 24 we can start adding a 4 team division to also play in our Blue Chip Jr NBA competitive league.
As players and coaches develop we may invite our players, based on evaluation rank, to play in AAU local and travel tournaments.
To be considered for the pool:
- If you/your player has already registered you should receive your uniform at practice tonite.
- If you have attended our previous open sessions and want to be involved in the player pool email firstname.lastname@example.org with your player name.
- Tonite’s 7-8:30 session is still open evaluation/tryout so all interested players are still invited. Starting next week only current pool players and players who have submitted a profile and received an invite to tryout/eval can attend.
Any players not registered who plan to attend tonite and moving forward must submit their player info form here:
If you have a player interested in summer activities/camp with Blue Chip please fill out our interest/profile form here as soon as you can to help us finalize the details in the next few days.
Apologies for the delayed Summer camp info! We have had much difficulty planning Blue Chip Summer activities due to capital maintenance scheduling at our home courts of Patriot Oaks and Freedom Crossing.
Current status is: Patriot Oaks has made their gym unavailable to Blue Chip for the Summer season due to gym floor refinishing, parking lot resurfacing and other maintenance items where they do not want to potentially mix contractors and kids.
Freedom Crossing is scheduled to have their gym floor resurfacing done by June 25th and have made the gym available after that date. But Freedom Crossing’s side basketball rims were placed in a position against the bleachers that is unsafe to do anything but very basic shooting on, so our intensive work can only be done on the 2 main rims severely limiting the number of attendees we can accommodate productively over a normal 6 rim gym camp configuration.
So we are working on final details to try and execute advanced and developmental basketball camps that may be higher cost/smaller group. We will most likely do preorder booking and will announce everything within the next 3-4 days.
Advanced invite only player camp July 6-9 9am-1pm
Coed 4-7th Grade July 12-16 9am-1pm
Coed 8-10th Grade July 19-22 9am-1pm
