The basketball boys did yoga last Friday on the new west field and it was great. They will have two more Friday workouts as well as outside professional trainers coming in to work with them. They are preparing for a great season with some valuable cross training!
Basketball – Boys
Mira Costa Boys’ Basketball program encompasses a number of exciting attributes throughout the year, including a summer league which consists of league and tournament play, conditioning programs in the fall and spring, pre-season tournament play that runs through December, and a highly competitive Bay League season that runs from January to February followed by CIF playoffs for the Varsity team. The Varsity team also travels to out of town tournaments a few times a year, where they play competitive teams outside the Bay League.
Varsity Coach, Jeff Amaral, and his coaching staff and trainers, devote numerous hours to create an excellent program emphasizing basketball fundamentals, good sportsmanship, and strong work ethic. Players on each of the three teams: Varsity, JV and Frosh, experience success on many levels, including personal growth, improving their level of play, and becoming a better teammate.
Practices vary throughout the year based on gym availability and team level. There are three tryouts available for players interested in joining the team, They take place at the beginning of the school year, the end of fall sports, and when spring sports finish at the end of the school year.
