MHS summer basketball training and workouts
Offseason basketball programs for both the girls and boys teams at Midlothian are in the process of getting ready for the summer. This program is open to all current players and any incoming freshman planning to play basketball next season.
Cost of the training will be tournament registration fees and jerseys with nearly all practices to be conducted during open gyms at the high school. Spring league tournaments won’t be identified until later in March when all state playoffs are finished. Tournaments will start before school lets out and run throughout the summer.
Along with players, organizers are looking for team coordinators and coaches to help out. The hope is to have three boy and three girl teams for work this summer.
