Cooper's Crew

This was Cooper's first Junior Jazz season. Originally, he hadn't wanted to sign up for basketball, saying soccer was his favorite sport. After realizing he wouldn't be playing soccer in the snow, he asked to sign up for basketball. Luckily, we were able to get him on a team. Cooper did GREAT! He started the season in an arm brace, recovering from a broken arm. Looks like we have another allstar on our hands!

Keaton's Hoop Highlights

Junior Jazz 2010-2011 ... Keaton's done a little soccer, baseball and of course basketball ... he's participated in Junior Jazz for a few years now. This year (4th Grade), he had a couple classmates from Columbia on his team, and made some new friends. He had a good season (5 wins, three losses). I made two videos of his games this season ...

GF Basketball (2010)

Callahan has been playing basketball since he could dribble. We were thrilled to discover year round playing opportunities at Gene Fullmer. Spring, Summer and Fall ball, in addition to the standard Jr. Jazz during the winter months. Unlike Jr. Jazz, which is played at various schools in the area, Gene Fullmer Basketball is played at the rec center ... and the rec center has a track above the basketball court. So usually, I'm on the track, jogging while cheering, feeding off the energy of the game. So unlike the current seasons, where I'm capturing video and making a muvee of EVERY game, I only have four to feature from the three 2010 seasons (two from spring season, and two from fall season, when the games were held at a different rec center that didn't have a track).

Basketball Backlog

Basketball through the years ... I thought it would be fun to go back and find all the team photos from when Callahan first started playing.

Introduction of Amber as our coach ... she had taken over some of the coaching duties last season when the coach was late or couldn't be there, then decided to step up so that the kids could stay together as a team ... we ended up staying together for 5 more seasons! Amber was a great coach, always on time to games and practices, making sure the kids had FUN in addition to being competitive. Thanks Amber, for all you did for the team!)
