Spring, 2013 Newsletter

In This Issue:

  • Summer Open Gym and Conditioning

  • Fundraising opportunities

  • Potential Team Camp dates for updates throughout the year

CHS Players-- Please stop by to check-in with Coach Daly in the cafeteria during lunch periods each Monday to stay updated on CHS Basketball events.  

Fundraising opportunities: working concessions at UVa baseball games with CHS boys basketball team on Sat. 5/11 (12:30-7:30pm) and Sun. 5/12 (9:30am-3:30pm).  Working one of those two days will take care of your cost for a team camp.  We'll try to continue with some UVa events at the JPJ and home football games.  It's decent money without any costs to players like selling candy.  We'll also have fundraisers at home CHS football games in the Fall.

Team Camps:  

Please let Coach Daly know your availability/interest in the following events:

- Hollins College--June 13-15-overnight on campus (estimated cost of $90/player for room and meals on campus--working one fundraising event this Spring will cover your cost)

- University of Richmond--August 3-4. We may drive down and back each day depending on costs.

- Christopher Newport--October 19th We will drive down in the morning and back that night.  (No injuries this year, please!)

Gear for Next Season

I will meet with the rising Seniors this week to determine what their priorities are for new gear.  I believe our uniforms have one more year on the replacement cycle, but I would like to look at some options for practice gear, warmup shirts, elite socks, and team off-season workout gear (tshirt/shorts).

Mr. Harris has been very supportive of our program--we can fundraise the rest with all of us working together.

Off-season workouts.

It's great that nearly every varsity and many JV players are playing Spring sports at CHS and that over half of you are on an AAU team.  Your Spring sports (and later, your Fall Sports) that are in-season take precedence over Summer basketball activities.  That being said, we'd love to see as many of you as possible at events this summer.  

All workouts will be on the calendar at  We'll try to have two workout/conditioning sessions each week (focused on Strength/Speed/Skills) and one "Open Gym" night each week that will have shooting drills and live games.  Dates will be finalized as Spring sports wind down.

Returning Gear and Money for Shoes/Warmups:

A few of you still have your practice gear and team bag.  Please return those this week.  Some players also owe money for this year's shoes and warmups.  Please don't let this be a hold against graduation or playing next year.  The cost for shoes and warmup suits was $60 per player after CHS contributed over half of the cost.


Take some time this off-season to “star” any highlights of yours from this season.  Once plays are listed as highlights we can easily create recruiting videos or just have a fun video to share with family and friends.  All of our games from the last two seasons are available online on our Hudl site. Please let me know if you are having problems logging into Hudl.

Parents and Players--please don't hesitate to email, call, or text me throughout the Spring and Summer with any questions.

Thanks, Coach Daly
