In the beginning of April I presented the girls with a big challenge. It's called the 25,000 point club. They have 5 months to score 25,000 points per player. It's NOT mandatory. I wanted this to be something the girls wanted to work for to prove they want to get better. It started April 4th and will end August 28th. The average amount of points they need to score a day is 170 points. A week is 1,191 points. A month is 5,000. They can get these points by going to camps, playing in team camps, shooting, dribbling, playing 1 on 1, playing AAU, scrimmaging on their own...etc. If they shoot 2's they get to 2 points for each one they make. They have been recording every shot.
For those who complete this task they will be rewarded. I can see some big changes in a some of these girls that have really stayed on top of this and I am very proud of them because it's not an easy task. At the end of July we will pick 3 winners that will recieve 1,000 points a piece. It will go to the "best newcomer" and the "most improved" and finally "the best hustler." These will be BIG accomplishments too.
Parents...Please encourage this girls to keep it up! It's going to pay off. Go out and rebound for them. This will help them get more shots in. I know they would appreciate your help and be more willing to stick it out.
At this moment they should have 15,483 points to
be on target.
