Welcome to Davidson Basketball!
New Basketball Policy:
Our philosophy at Davidson Middle School has been - and continues to be - that we want to have as many students as possible be able to participate on our school athletic programs. Because we play in a competitive league of Marin middle schools, our philosophy and the reality don’t match up for every sport. Try-outs and cuts are directly correlated to the number of teams we can have in that particular sport, to the number of players who can be on a playing field/court at one time, to the space we have for practices and games, to the numbers of coaches, and to the limits set by the leagues on the number of teams or athletes permitted. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough resources, gym space/equipment, playing time slots, and coaches available at Davidson to keep everyone who comes out to participate on every team.
Due to the limitations mentioned above, Davidson Basketball is moving to a try-out-and-cut program. We are allowed to have six teams compete in the league: a boys and girls team for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Davidson MS has one gym for all six teams to practice and host games. Space is limited in our gym, and scheduling twelve practices (2x/week each team) and six home games per week fills the gym to capacity. Basketball (compared to many other team sports) has a small number of athletes that play during games and a small court. Five is the number of athletes on the court during a game which limits the amount of playing time.
Basketball registration will be the week of 11.4-11.11 The following week, 11.14-11.18, will be “Commitment Week” where students will try out and demonstrate their commitment over the course of several practices. Coaches will make the final rosters and post them by the end of the week Coaches will be looking at the following during try-outs:
· Practice Attendance
· Attitude and Sportsmanship
· Hustle and Effort
· Basketball Skills
We encourage athletes to consider all sports opportunities available to them and select the team or league that is best for them.
