Boys Varsity/JV/B/9 Basketball · Boys Basketball Preseason Information


Hello Parents and Players

I hope this email finds you well and healthy. I wanted to reach out to all prospective players and parents and provide some information in regards to our upcoming season. We typically have a face-to-fact parent/player meeting roughly two weeks before the start of our season. Because of COVID and other mandates/guidelines, we aren’t able to offer our typical meeting. In lieu of our face-to-face meeting I have put together a video that will outline much of what we know at this time. Please make sure that you and your son watch the video and look through all of the attachments in this email.

This season will be unique in many ways and we as a coaching staff will do everything we can to make it feel as normal as we can for our athletes. Having said that, there are many guidelines and precautions that we must follow (and those can change day to day). Please know that we will do everything we can to keep your boys safe.

If you have not yet registered your son, please do so ASAP. All players must be registered and have a current sports physical on file in order to participate in practice/tryouts. You can complete registration at GoRogersRoyals.Com

Practices/Tryouts will begin on Monday, 11/23. We do anticipate that we as coaches will have to make cuts this season. We expect to make cuts and have our teams selected on Wednesday, 11/25. Please view the calendar for our current practice schedule. Note that all times are subject to change, including our first week. Volleyball, Football, and Dance are all requesting to use the gym space and we will need to work around them. I feel good about our schedule but I am also asking for your patience and flexibility as things may change. We will communicate any changes.

For those of you who have sports engine accounts (many of us do because of youth sports) you can subscribe to our calendar through our website www.rogersroyalshoops.org . Our most updated calendar is posted on the website and you can subscribe and have the practice/game schedule on your mobile devices.
