Tryouts Feedback
3/6/18 - 06:21 AM

"....I just wanted to say that I was completely impressed by the tryouts for the girls on Saturday.  Unfortunately my daughter was pretty impressed to the point where she thinks she's not yet ready for that level of play yet.  I tried to convince her that she would learn a lot from playing Classics but I think she wants to find a happy medium that is a level up from rec. but not quite as competitive as Classics.  I was amazed at the experience of not only the 6th graders but the 5th graders that were trying out before them.  I really wish I would have discovered Classics a few years earlier, I would have gotten my son into your program also...." - Les

David Robbins - We ' ll Miss You!! |-(
12/4/17 - 05:16 PM

All Classics Basketball Families,


It deeply saddens me to tell you a long time Classics Basketball player, David Robbins, passed away on Thursday 11/30/17 from a 3 year battle with osteosarcoma. David played with the our recent 2017 graduating class teams from 4th grade thru 11th grade and even while dealing with his cancer treatments often managed to play with the Classics and with his Rockville HS Rams team when he was able to.  He just started college this Fall, I know Coaches Dale Davis and Rafael Negron have reached out to David's Classics teammates. 

A Memorial Service for David will be held:

Saturday, 12/9/17 at 2:00 pm
Christ Episcopal Church
Kensington, MD 20895
(parking is on Everett St)

Please wear blue in honor of David.  It was his favorite color.
A reception will follow the Memorial Service for David Robbins.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the following: 

http://support.childrenscancer.org/site/TR/DIY/General?px=1776818&pg=personal&fr_id=1353

Also see these links for  an order form for a David Robbins Full Court Press Against Osteosarcoma T-shirt literally created a few weeks ago and were fortunately able to be shown to David Sunday before he passed away and/or to make donations to Osteosarcoma research.

Please keep David and his family and friends in your thuoghts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Coach Andy

  - 8 of our high school girls players attended the Univeristy of New Haven prospect camp on August 4th and performed very well there and then they played in the Keystone State Camps Elite Shootout on Sunday the 6th at Susquehanna University.  Five of the 8 girls were selected as Shootout MVPs. The shootout was broedcast live to over 1000 college coaches who were watchig the games Sunday afternoon and several players have already been contacted.

Looking ahead:
   - Several of our recent high school graduates are heading off to college soon to play hoops at Cornell, Tulane and a few other schools.  Plus a few of our former club athletes were here for the summer from college and were helping out with coaching and they too are headed back soon for fall training and school.
