Carlson Playground Series: New to John Barker Basketball this year is the Carlson Playground Series. This is an informal pickup basketball series one evening a week for each grade. This will give the boys an opportunity to show up at Carlson and with some light oversight organize pickup basketball games for an hour to an hour and a half one day a week. This will be an old school operation with the boys picking teams on the spot each time. Winner stays, call your own fouls, talk a little smack and work on your moves.
We will need parent volunteers each week to provide light oversight.
The program will run July 9th through August 29th.
Tuesdays- 5:30-7:00 - Rising 7th 8th and 9th graders
Thursdays - 5:30-6:30 - Rising 3rd and 4th graders
Thursdays - 6:30-7:30- Rising 5th and 6th graders
Please note that volunteers are there solely to help move games along, not babysit your child. If you are not comfortable dropping your son off at a park to play for an hour without adult supervision then please plan on staying around for his hour of basketball.
