Uniforms- Coach Tohm


The plan to purchase close-out uniforms for the 9th & 10th graders will not work L Close-outs were out of stock.  New plan is to use last year’s varsity uniforms for the 9th graders and purchase new uniforms for the 10th, JV, & Varsity teams.  That is around 36 uniforms and the booster club will still kick in ~$2000 as previously discussed.  P.Lombard made a motion for uniforms “not to exceed $2500 towards the purchase of 10th, JV, & Varsity Uniforms” K. Sutton 2nd, motion passes and coach can purchase uniforms anytime now.

AHS Boys Basketball Summer Camp- Coach Tohm & Paul Lombard


So far we have $5,560 in registrations for camp.  Great turnout for the High Schoolers – Youth turnout was much lighter than anticipated.   Next year we will consolidate flyer for youth & high school and include the waiver right on the flyer.  The jerseys for camp and for the upcoming season cost ~$1000. And the camp t shirts will be in the $400-$500 range. Money raised by registrations will cover these expenses and the coaches earnings as well.  There will be a check in table the first day of camp with extra waivers and sign up forms.

Noah Clinic – is free for players to attend.  The Noah machine helps measure the arc of players shots.  It could land in the $5,000 range with installation.  Discussion centered on inviting the Girls Basketball Coaches to try it out as well.  Maybe if coach thinks it is a worthwhile tool – Boys and Girls Basketball booster clubs could potentially split the cost?

Tournament Planning-Paul Lombard


We are still trying to figure out gym space for the tournament.  Coach Tohm has secured Champlin Park HS for Sunday’s games.  That gives us 6 basketball courts.  The Champlin Girls Gymnastics team will put in volunteer hours and we will donate in some way to the Gymnastics program.  Concessions will be crazy to manage at 3 locations.  So far looks like we have this gym space:

AHS for Saturday and Sunday

CPHS for Sunday and possibly Saturday

AMSA (Fred Moore) for parts of Saturday and Sunday

LOL for Sunday – we may drop this location if we can secure CPHS for both days
