Middle School Girls' Basketball

There are two teams at the middle school.  The middle school varsity team will be coached by Coach Howard and the middle school junior varsity team will be coached by Coach Henry.

Open gym schedule Fall 2023:

Open gyms are not mandatory practices.  However, it will give the girls a chance to practice the skills they will be evaluated on during try-outs.  Open gyms will be held at the middle school gym.  Please dress appropriately.

October 25 2:45pm-5:00pm
November 2, 7, 14, and 16 from 2:45pm-5:00pm

Try-Out Schedule:

Saturday, November 18 from 1:00pm-3:00pm
Monday, November 20 from2:45pm-5:00pm


Players will be evaluated during these practices.  At the end practice on November 18, players will be given a letter that will let them know if they have made the team.  Those players that made the team will be expected to be at practice on November 20 at 2:45pm.

However, playing time must be earned throughout the season. Players are not guaranteed playing time just because they have made the team.


Practice and Game Schedule:

Players that make the team will be required to be at practice.  All practices are mandatory unless excused by the coach prior to practice.  Practices will be held after school from 2:45pm to 5:00pm or from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Note- there will be practices over Thanksgiving and Christmas break. Please look over the schedule your daughter will get from her coaches carefully. 

Parents will need to provide transportation for players for the evening practices.  If you make the team, please make sure you can keep your commitment to the coaches and your teammates.

The practice and game schedule will be posted on the West Perry Middle School Girls Basketball Webpage. The link for the webpage is below:
