- WELCOME TO STING BASKETBALL CLUB 2016 SEASON
- THE ONLY PLACE SUCCESS COMES BEFORE WORK IS IN THE DICTIONARY
I WILL BE UPDATING INFORMATION CONCERNING THIS UPCOMING SEASON SOON.
DATE OF NOTICE: 2/21/2016
This year will have the following teams 14u/8th grade * 13U/7th grade * 11U/6th grade * 10u/5th grade 9U/4thgrade.
To parents looking for an competitive travel team for their daughter we would like to invite you try out for Sting Basketball Club. Sting has been a top girls program throughout California for over a decade.
We believe challenging your daughter is the best way to promote growth. We of course will develop you daughter skills in practice so that they can play at a fast pace and under intense pressure. We try to play in events, when teams are ready, that will apply this type of pressure and challenge.
This year I am proud to announce that some of our past standout players have volunteered to coach different levels within Sting. These players, who will now be coaching, are the foundation and heart of Sting Basketball Club. They are each responsible for building the competitive reputation that this program has throughout the state and even abroad.
Sting Basketball Club in not an entry level program. If your daughter in not a stand out, dominate player for her school or recreation league team, she may struggle within this program. This of course depends on age. For our youngest teams we look for athletic players, fast and aggressive. We cannot expect girls at this age to have advanced skills. Saying this I would bring your daughter out for a try-out. We usually hold a couple try-outs at the beginning of the season, but if it is past this point you can still be invited to come out and run some drills with the girls in practice.
Also check with us because if we have enough coaches we may have started some development level teams.
For our elite teams we do expect your daughter to have basic skills. When our players are showing promise and improvement on their current team we will often "move the player up" to a team which is a grade level or two above. We would like to have 6th and 7th graders to be able to play at the 8th grade level and 8th grader we hope to start getting some varsity level experience. Sting players have consistently went straight to the varsity level when entering high school as freshmen, those who have played in our program constantly for 2 or more years.
This is a high school development program, with the commitment and desire to get your daughter to the next level and continue their game in college.
This year coaches will be...
Priscilla Wright who will direct the program this year as co-director.
Priscilla was a standout player on COS, she helped her team go undefeated in league, and obtain a number one seed for state playoffs. Unfortunate injuries hindered Cos's efforts and they fell just short of the final four. Priscilla still has two years of eligibility and she is weighing options to she where she will continue her career.
Briana Alvarez, is a standout player for Fresno Pacific in her Junior year. Briana has been sidelines several times with ACL tears. This hindered her chances of competing at the division level, but she has had a great impact for Fresno Pacific.
Dariyel Martin. Was a standout sting player and dominate in high school and is currently weighing her options. Dariyel, Brianna and Priscilla started sting as fourth graders and played all the way through. They are responsible in helping Sting win some prestigious championships. They were champions of Reno Memorial Day Tournament as 7th graders in the top division out of 19 teams, and runner up as 6th graders. They went 3-1 and took 5th place out of 16 in the top division of Michael T Whites Tournament of Champions at Mater Dei which is a NCAA event. This was an amazing accomplishment considering the competition was filled will high level D1 recruits.
Should you have any questions or concerns you may contact the president and director of Sting Basketball Club.
