Announcements

Parent Meeting: Tuesday, November 13th at 4:45 in TMS Room 121. The meeting should last about 30 minutes. A parent or guardian of each player must attend (please read the Tahoma District Policy below regarding parent meeting attendance).

Tahoma School District Policy requires parents to attend the Parent Meeting to gain information regarding program/team goals, coach's philosophy, team expectations, player safety policies and parent/coach communication.  Parents who are unable to attend will need to contact the coach for an alternative option, before their players will be allowed to participate in a game. Please be sure to pay your athlete’s participation fee. This can be done online or at the Cashier’s window. The participation fee must be paid before your child can play in a game.

First tryout will be on November 3rd at Tahoma Middle School from 3:00-4:45.

Get an Athletic Participation Card Before the First Tryout
Before the first tryout, each athlete must obtain an Athletic Participation Card in order to participate. See the Tahoma Athletic Handbook which discusses the card requirements.

Preseason Training
Before the season, athletes should try to prepare themselves for the upcoming basketball season by practicing their skills. You can use the Tahoma Bears Off Season Skills Development sheet to help. Players should also get into a weight lifting and exercise routine to be physically fit and ready when the season begins. Finally, some may want to join an AAU team to get some game experience before the season begins.

Athlete Expectations
During school, each athlete is expected to maintain a respectable grade in all classes. In addition, an athlete’s behavior in school and the community should also positively represent the Tahoma basketball program. Please refer to the
Tahoma Athletic Handbook
