Welcome to Black ICE Basketball!
Hello to all of our Black ICE supporters and Welcome to our new supporters as well! Black Ice consists of two basketball teams (boys and girls) that compete in the EDRECO basketball program. We are very proud of our student athletes and do our best to reinforce the positive social, academic, and moral ethics that our parents teach at home. Although we are an athletic group and we strive to help the players be at their best on the court, we put sportsmanship, digntiy, respect, and that "never give up" mentality at the top of our priorities.
Throughout the years I, Coach Gerald, have had the pleasure of coaching some of the most talented young ballers in the local area. Along the way, they have grown both as players and young citizens. And I'd like to think that I've had a positive influence on them. I can admit that they have taught me quite a bit as well. This website is my way of thanking them. I only regret that I did not start this in my first year of coaching.
So to all of you, players, parents, and Black ICE supporters, I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me this grand opportunity to be a part of your young athlete's life. And I truly hope that you are satisfied with my efforts.
EDRECO Boys Basketball Kicks Off 2019-20 Season on Dec 7th!!!
Mark Dec 7th down on your calendars for another exciting year of youth basketball for the EDRECO Boys Basketball program as they head into their 2019-20 season. This year promises to be exciting than the last judging by how many newcomers there have been registered for the Winter. The competition looks to be more intense as each team doesn't seem to hold a great advantage over the others, which only means the title of Jamboree Champion is truly up for grabs this season.
But as always, Black ICE will head into the season with high hopes of capturing that title once again and establish itself again as one of the elite teams in the program. Coach Gerald admitted that he has great optimism about his team this year. "We seem to have a more balanced team this year, giving us the ability to play through different players and control the tempo of the game as well." he said, "Once they learn how to play with each other the sky's the limit!"
This season Black ICE has decided to don black and gold. I asked coach Gerald what was the inspiration for this choice he said they first needed to get back to their black roots and the white from last season was only to celebrate his 10th year of coaching at EDRECO. He also stated that the gold is to inspire the kids to "go for the gold" and have them stand out along the way. He says that his team is focused and ready to fight for the title and the color choice is an extra motivational tool. With all that said, we wish Black ICE the best of luck as they strive to bring another Championship trophy home.
