Welcome Cougar Families,
It has been quite some time since I've been able to send out a message about basketball. I am hopeful that all of our families have remained safe and are adjusting to the "new normal." COVID-19 has completely changed the world we live in and has definitely made an impact on youth sports. However, it is time to make our way back to the courts....
Our priority is the safety of all players; Macomb County Cougars will adhere to the most current healthcare guidelines. Above you will find important info regarding COVID please take a moment to review this to be aware of what L'Anse Creuse District is doing regarding COVID so that we can be in compliance. If your athlete is showing symptoms, please stay home and notify the coach.
Due to our late start this season we will be evaluating players this first practice for U17 U15 U14 before we decide on final roster spots should a player not be able to make Sundays practice please let us know, (if you paid a tryout fee it will be applied to your overall balance), if there is no team you will be refunded your tryout fee, complete rosters will be displayed on our website by Thursday April 22th, the girls team roster will be added by Tuesday April, 20th.
Returning Athletes who already registered and are paid in full should a team not get fielded you will be refunded 100%
Parent meeting on ZOOM will be the following WEEK
We may consider having athletes as alternates should someone have to drop due to injury or COVID, since most games this year were streamed online we were able to watch about 85% of the high school sophomore/juniors athletes that are registered and was able to make a determination based on what we saw.
I think this is the best way to give an athlete an opportunity to possibly play later in the season if something does happen. The Cougars tentatively will have 3 teams this season with a possibility of having a 4th team
Teams are as follows:
U14 Boys we are currently working on adding this team
Our first TWO PRACTICES will be held at PickUp USA Fitness 29380 John R, in Madison Heights U17 boys U15 boys U14 boys Only!!!
April 18, 2021 and April 25, 2021 from 8:30pm to 10:30pm!!!
Our girls first TWO PRACTICES will be held at Basketball City 16400 Eastland St. Roseville, MI 48066 GIRLS ONLY!!!
April 19, 2021 and April 26, 2021 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm!!!
We have been given the okay to enter into the building and are now awaiting to be added to the calendar for practice at L'Anse Creuse North (Our normal practice facility) should we hear back by Monday April 19th we will start our normal practice schedule which will be:
5:30pm to 7:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays FOR ALL TEAMS.
PLEASE ARRIVE 15-30 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED PRACTICE TIME.
Additionally, a tentative schedule has been posted to allow parents to view it prior to our first practice as a team; most tournaments will be in state with the exception of July, the NCAA evaluation period will be opening up on June 1 so I made sure we are playing in July during the evaluation period. Keep in mind the schedule is subject to change as the world continues to change around with this COVID stuff so flexibility is an absolute requirement for this season as the only thing that has remained constant during the pandemic has been change.
For a view of our Tentative Schedule: click on teams above and go to 2021
And if your reading this and your athlete is not registered please do so before coming Sunday it only take a second... so keep scrolling and lets get started
I look forward to seeing everyone this upcoming season. Please feel free to share this information to anyone that may be interested.
