BOYS SPRING 2017 INFORMATION

Team Structure

 

We plan on running the following teams:

 

2/3 (1 or 2 teams)

4/5 Green

4/5 Blue

6 Blue

6/7 Green

7 Blue

8 Green

8 Blue

 

“Blue” designates teams that played winter travel season together and “Green” designates teams that played West LA winter league together. New players will generally start on Green and then get assessed and re-placed if necessary. There are NO tryouts for spring season. It is not unusual for players to start on Green and then get offered additional opportunities to practice and play with Blue teams later in the season.

 

 

Practice Schedule

 

Below is the practice schedule. We may make an adjustment or 2 as we start the season if necessary. The emphasis with the schedule is on main sure we have the right coaches available at the right time for the teams, and we are trying to get in as much time on the field as possible while still getting kids to bed as early as possible.

Coaching Assignments

 

As you know, coaches play a very, very big part in a player’s growth and development. This spring season we are very proud to be able to announce that we will have 2 professional coaches with each team. In addition we are starting a Big Brother program for our 2/3 and 4/5 Green teams. This program consists of a pool of 3-5 coaches at each practice, as well as 2-4 8th graders. Many of our 8th graders play at a very, very high level and have an amazingly deep understanding of the game. And they are enthusiastic to share their knowledge. The Big Brother program will give the younger and newer players more individual attention, and it will teach our older players  how to give back to the next generation of Dragons.

 

Here are the coaches working with each team:

 

  • 2/3 and 4/5 Big Brother Program - Connor Buss, Andrew Buss, Wade Weinbrenner, Dayton Gilbreath, David Manning
  • 4/5 Blue - James Burton & Kevin Hinton
  • 6 Blue - Mike Kutzer & Wade Weinbrenner
  • 6/7 Green - Andrew Layne & JT Ervin
  • 7 Blue - Riley Lasda & Connor Buss
  • 8 Green - Dayton Gilbreath & Tyler Landis
  • 8 Blue - Erik Krum & Andrew Buss
