Classics Dawg Dayz of Summer
8/11/17 - 07:01 PM

I hope you are all enjoying our unusual respite from the typical dawg days in DC with 95 degrees and 80+% humidity.  This is a brief update email on things that have been happening over the summer and a look ahead for the new AAU program year for the Classics AAU Club,

First a review of the past couple of months:
 - Congratulations to the 5th Grade Girls A team under Coaches Finney, Pier, and Williams for winning the 6th grade dvision at the Keystone State Games and to the 5th grade Girls B Stadnik team for winning the 5th grade division on July 30 in York PA.  Our 8U boys Leucking team and the 7th grade Girls Dwyer teams both played in their respective  AAU Nationals in June.  
  - 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.
    - Fall tryouts will be held Sept 9-10 at Churchill High School - the detialed schedule will be sent out and put up on the website by August 15th.  We will also begin to hold some outdoor conditioning workouts starting on or about August 19th-20th weekend - details wil be sent out next week as well.
   - The coaches are going to be meeting this wekeend to work out gym permit assignents for teams for the school year and to plan out the tryouts and discuss the fall annd winter team programs.

Please enjoy the last few weeks of summer and we ll see you soon!

Regards,
Coach Andy
