The Newport Girls Select Basketball program has a strong grounding in the fundamentals of basketball as well as advanced game play strategies.
Tryouts are designed to help find the right fit for each player and team. Through a series of drills and games, we will be looking for the following skills, decision-making, and attitudes:
- Ball handling, passing, defense, rebounding, scoring, timing and spacing
- Resiliency and mental agility which includes coach-ability, good sportsmanship and being positive, and communication.
Please contact a board member with any questions.
Basketball is a team sport. We expect all players to demonstrate good sportsmanship and for everyone to contribute positively to the team experience.
Most teams will hold 10-12 players on the roster. We strive to select players for a balanced, even roster. Every player will get playtime. Factors that go into how much will be based on on practice attendance, attitude, game readiness.
We do not discourage multiple-sports athletes, but we do require a steady practice commitment to be able to develop individually and as a team. Team members are expected to participate in practices, games, and tournaments.
The mission of the Newport Girls Select Basketball program is to provide a constructive and rewarding experience for future student-athletes of Newport High School through focusing on individual and team development.
Our coaches strive to develop each player through teaching the fundamentals and skills of the game, while also providing a team first system for players to develop within.
