February concluded our youth basketball season with Suffield Parks and Recreation. As my first season of basketball comes to a close, I am very thankful to be able to have worked with so many dedicated volunteers, staff and coaches. It was their loyalty that made this season such a success for our Suffield youth!
This winter Suffield Parks and Recreation employed several energetic and dedicated high schoolers to assist with the program. They brought an eagerness to stay active, work with you, and help in their community. These young people brought their own experience and love of the game with them each Saturday.
With the collaboration with some enthusiastic basketball coordinators from our surrounding towns, this winter season we were able to offer “travel” games for our Grade 5-8th boys and girls Teams. This was very helpful for all the departments involved, as our numbers tend to be lower for the upper grade levels, and the teams get a chance to play many other teams throughout the season.
A huge shout out to the many coaches that dedicated their weekends to our Suffield youth for the season! Without them, our season would not have been a success!
