May 2000

Last year, my son tried out for the 9th grade basketball team at BHS. It was very competitive, and he didn't make it, but we commended him for putting out his best effort. The students are required to get a doctor's clearance before trying out, and the tryouts last 4-5 days. Students who don't make the team can take basketball as a P.E. course, both during the school year and during summer school at BHS. If offered this summer, incoming 9th graders can enroll in summer school. My son has enjoyed these classes. Also, I understand that one of the basketball teachers at BHS offers a summer camp, and the YMCA downtown offers basketball during after school hours. -- Anonymous
