2015-2016 Open Gym and Sign Up

We will have an open gym on Thursday, Oct 1st from 5-7 PM at Cumming Baptist Church. The first hour will be primarily for the varsity boys and the second hour will be for the girls and middle school boys.

Several coaches and the Fideles athletic director, Kate Tate, will be available to answer questions at the open gym.

Game scheduling is still in progress. All events will be added to the basketball calendar found here: http://fidelesbasketball.blogspot.com/p/calendar.html

We ask that you make a final decision about playing or not playing by Friday, October 2 so we'll have enough lead time to make final plans for the season.
