Gross Catholic Junior Cougars Basketball
Dear 5th-8th grade Girls and 5th-8th grade Boys,
Gross Catholic High School will again be forming the Junior Cougar basketball teams. The Junior Cougar basketball program is a semi-select program. Our goals of the program are to find players interested in attending Gross Catholic and further enhance your daughter's or son’s basketball abilities and give him/her a chance to play against quality competition in the area. The team will in no way replace his/her CYO/PAL team, but will give him/her the opportunity to play more basketball this fall and winter. His/her school team will get first priority when it comes to practice and games.
Each of the girl’s teams will be playing in the Conqueror Basketball League played at the Lied Center in Bellevue. The boy’s teams will play in the Predator League played at the Omaha Sports Academy. Both teams will be playing in the “Early Bird” leagues. The leagues run from mid October to December. Practice will be held two days during the week with games scheduled for Saturdays or Sundays. 5th graders are welcome to try-out for the 6th grade team.
The girls’ tryout will be held at Gross Catholic High School on Tuesday September 8th from 7-8:30 PM and Wednesday September 9th from 8:30-10:00 PM. The boy’s tryout will be held on Tuesday September 8th from 8:30-10:00 PM and Wednesday September 9th from 7-8:30 PM. If you have a conflict with the date and times of the tryouts please let us know. Please arrive approx. 15 minutes early to register for the tryout.
We hope by providing an opportunity for your daughter or son to play with the Junior Cougars, they will be able to improve as a player and also meet other students from the various grade schools. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope to see you at the tryout.
