Sorry about the lack of posts. I've been working on my AP Language students to join the blogging fray. It's funny how students that can drive, talk on a cell phone, text their cronies and change CDs all at the same time, struggle to open a blog account. However, we are making great strides.
Once again, I'm tweaking the format of my Caption Contest a bit. As Blog Czar I am allowed. As some of you may know, I returned to coaching. I'll be leading the 9th grade girls' basketball team this year. We are nearing the end of our second week of practice and have made some great strides in the past couple of days. Our first game is Monday, November 26 at Fraser High School. Because this is the first year girls' basketball has occurred in the winter, schedules are a bit hectic. However, we have introduced our offense and today I'll introduce our out-of-bounds plays. The play illustrated above is so simple and so effective. Most schools throw a zone defense while defending the opponent's basket. We counter this zone by sending four girls to the weak side corner. While the defense thinks we will attack them in the paint, we simply chuck it to the corner and crank a triple. Three points later, the coach still doesn't understand what happened. Trust me it works. We ran this at the boys' varsity level, boys' grade school level and girls' grade school level. As long as you have a shooter, you will get the shot. Not only will we get the shot, we will also get the points. What I don't have is a name for this play. So...this week it's NAME THIS PLAY Contest. The contest begins immediately. The winner will win the satisfaction that every time we run this play, all our girls will remember the creative genius who named it.
