Owl Creek Teams
If your child did not make the team this year, please know this is not a statement about their basketball future. We strongly encourage you to find the best possible coach and play on a team at the most competitive level you can find locally. More than anything else, work on the fundamentals and skills of the game, specifically ball handling, Left/Right handed layups, and shooting. AAO basketball training programs are designed for and attended by all levels of players, not limited to AAO team members. Consider basketball training classes. As well, our friends at the Fayetteville Boys & Girls Club provide a fine resource for recreational basketball team participation.
Here is a link to their website: http://www.fayettevillekids.org/sports/basketball
Their basketball director is: firstname.lastname@example.org or 479-442-9242 ext. 112
No matter where you find skill development, players who want to improve, commit yourself to working hard over the next year and come out strong for your next tryout!

Chase grew up in Little Rock, and played for the same AAU coach from 5th grade to 10th grade. "The coach was a very hard nosed, highly-developmental, and very tough. He didn't care about winning and losing but developing boys as players." He graduated from Pulaski Academy a private prep school, and he started his Junior and Senior year, in which he played in one State Championship and one State Semi-Final. He is a junior at the U of A studying Kinesiology to be a coach. He is very passionate about basketball, Christ, and developing young men as players and as individuals.
