St. Martin de Porres CYO Basketball
2019 - 2020 Events
Clinics and Contests: Expect clinics similar to those in the past, such as Marist clinics, shooting clinics, Viani clinic, Vassar men’s and women’s clinics, Playmaker clinic, etc. plus we’ll have a few open gyms / pizza parties during the season. We will also have our annual 3-point contest on November 16 and hot shot contest on February 9. Winners will advance to a Dutchess county contest.
Nets and Knicks Events: Once the NBA schedule is released in early August, I’ll send an email announcing the dates for this year’s events. Please look at past yearbooks or Facebook to appreciate the court time, fan tunnels and anthem buddies offered by the Nets. 3,413 people have participated in our Nets events since 2008!
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame: It's been 7 years since we last visited the Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA, so I'd like to do so again and combine with a UConn men's or women's practice / tour of the Champions Center in Storrs, CT.
Our 9th Annual Coach’s Retreat: Date and format TBD in November, but I expect a combination of guest speakers and a DVD teaching from Discovering / Following / Sharing Christ and TMIY (That Man is You) along with a nice dinner from Cosimo’s.
12th Annual St. Martin CYO Basketball Tournament: This round-robin games of the tournament will be on 12/7, 12/8, 12/14, 12/15 and 12/22 at Vassar College, The Culinary Institute of America, Oakwood Friends School and St. Martin. The final four and championship games for B7 and B8 divisions will be 1/4 at Vassar College and TBD at Marist College for the other divisions. If you would like to be a tournament sponsor (platinum, gold, silver or bronze), then please let me know ASAP. A sponsorship brochure is on our tournament web site.
Season-end Barbecue: A BBQ for all leagues will occur on 5/1 and has become a fun social event for both parents and kids!
