Michael G. Moore is the head coach of the Jefferson County Traditional Middle School basketball team and is going to do a weekly blog post about his team. If you’re interested in doing a weekly blog post about your team, feel free to email Conor Revell at conor.revell@gmail.com.

We have reached the Christmas break period of the season, the kids will be off from Dec 20th – Jan 2nd.   We go into the break with a 4-4 record.

We had a good practice earlier this week on Monday working on offensive ball handling, scoring moves and shooting.  On Tuesday, we had a Fun Day since it was the last practice of 2017.  So we played music and had different shooting contest and finished with 3 on 3 Tourney.

When we get back we have a re-match with Johnson Middle on Thursday, Jan 4th at 7:45pm at Male HS.  With only one day to prep since school goes back on that Wednesday, Jan 3rd, we will try to fit a lot in that day to get ready the best we can.  I’m hoping we can give them a better game this time around by taking care of the ball better and playing more aggressive.


Looking ahead to just let people know how we end our JCPS Varsity Middle School Basketball Season:

There are Four District Tourney’s with each District consisting of Six Teams, it will played Feb 5th , Feb 7th , Feb 12th

Then comes the Eight-team (2 teams from each district, the district champ & district Runner-up) in the JR LIT City Tourney on Feb 15th & Feb  17th

The JCTMS Girls Basketball program would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
