STAY SAFE, EDGEMONT HOOPSTERS

Social distancing is critical for the health and safety of the community. It also represents an opportunity to stay in shape and work on individual skills. To that end, please click here for drill videos and other developmental tips.

We hope conditions allow for a 2020-21 travel basketball season and will keep the community informed via this website (please check back often), e-mail blasts, Edgemont Families on Facebook, and the Nextdoor Neighborhood app. To join our e-mail list, please send your contact information to Jon Lewis at jonlewis.edgemont@gmail.com.

In the meantime, a number of local programs are offering camps, training, and teams from late August through November. Please click here for more information.

Isiah Thomas on why Lakers and Celtics were successful year-after-year in the 1980s: “Those teams were loaded with talented players, yes, but that’s not the only reason they won. They won because they liked each other, knew their roles, ignored statistics, and valued winning over everything else. They won because their best players sacrificed to make everyone else happy. They won as long as everyone remained on the same page.”
