Thank you to all 28 boys that tried out for the 2018-2019 Brielle School basketball team. It was great to work with all the boys and there were many very hard decisions to be made. I tried my best to assess each boys’ basketball ability over the tryout days. Cutting players is my least favorite thing about coaching. If you are in 6th or 7th grade, please tryout again next season as we will be graduating five eighth graders. Your effort these past three days was tremendous, so thank you very much.
The 2018-2019 Brielle Blazers Basketball Team:
Congratulations to those boys named to the team. Practice begins tomorrow from 3:10-5:00 pm.
Please come to see me #12. I would like you to be a part of the team this year if you are interested.
If you have a question about what I saw at tryouts, please come to see me and we can discuss.

Have a great weekend!

Basketball tryouts will begin after the soccer season ends. Please have all paperwork in to Mrs. Looney before tryouts begin.There will be an interest meeting for any 6th-8th grade boy hoping to tryout for the basketball team on Tuesday, October 23rd during the beginning of 5th period in Mr. Labrecque's classroom. The meeting should take 5-10 minutes.
The MCAL regular season schedule has been announced for the 2018-19 season. You can see our schedule on the "Game Schedule" link on the left of the screen.
We will again try to schedule non-league games this season since our league schedule is only 12 games. So far, we have added games vs Oak Hill Academy (November 29th at home), Wall Intermediate School (December 5th at home), and Ocean Township (December 14th at Ocean Township Middle School). Our first MCAL game takes place on November 28th vs Antrim at home.
Tryouts for the team will begin as soon a soccer ends. Please have all your paperwork in order so we can begin tryouts as soon as soccer ends. The tentative practice schedule for November is posted (under "Calendar of Game/Practice Schedule") so you can take a look at the practice times for the team.
See everyone at tryouts.
