Dear Parents and Players,
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for going through the tryout process. I have the utmost respect for all of the kids who “put themselves out there” and participated in our workouts the last two weeks. Unfortunately, due to many factors, we are forced to limit participation and some players will not be chosen for a team this year. I want you to know that we agonize about the selection process and realize that as hard as we try, mistakes are made. It is my hope that if you are not selected, you will seek out other opportunities in the game of basketball for the upcoming season and try again next year.
My goal is to make team selections and post on the Golden Bear Basketball web site by Monday evening. See Tabs at the top of the page.
Please know that on Tuesday, 10/1, we will have our uniform fitting in the evening. Times are listed below. Uniform fitting will take place in the East Cafeteria at UAHS. It is critical that you attend. After determining correct sizes, from home you will enter all your information on a BSN website (we will have web address info at the uniform fitting) so uniforms can be made and delivered in plenty of time for the opening of the season. Uniforms, hoodie and shooting shirt are all included in your team fees. This year's uniform is a custom made uniform that will not be manufactured until all orders are submitted. Once all uniform orders are submitted, we will open a team store for additional spirit items that you might be interested in purchasing for yourself or your player. We will have more info at the uniform fitting.
We would like to collect fees tomorrow evening for all players who are participating, so please bring your check books. Cost of participation for this season is $570.00 payable to GBBC or Golden Bear Basketball Club. This is a one time fee which covers uniform cost, gym rental, officiating fees, COBA league entry fees, a preseason and post season COBA tournament, and two additional tournament entry fees for player to participate in, site coordinators, and miscellaneous supplies throughout the course of the season.
PLEASE BRING THE TWO FORMS BELOW TO UNIFORM FITTING .....
Thanks and Go Bears,

Thanks again for all your help and support,
Coach Casey and Staff
