As mentioned previously, Triangle Muslims are launching another new program in 2018 - Falcons Elite Youth Basketball Training Program. This is intended to be very intense training for youth (grades 6 - 9) who play at a fairly advanced level already with the long-term intent being to build a team that can compete at the county/state/national level inshaAllah. We have some remarkable coaches, mentors and leaders who are driving this, including Wilson Fowler, Habib Khadri and Faizan Ali. The training program will go from January through May and will primarily be held at the Raleigh Masjid.
Just a quick update on the info session from last weekend. Alhamdulilaah, based on the interest, we will have at least 15 people iA. We are limiting the team to comprise of individuals who would like to play the game competitively. Those who intend to play for recreational purposes, and/or are not in the age group (rising and current high schoolers) are welcome to join the team for the practices and/or games as volunteers.
The try outs/drills to gauge strengths and areas of improvement, will be on Sat 21st of May from 6pm - 8pm. (and NOT on the 14th of May to accommodate for the youth planning to attend IAR Youth Day). The try outs/drills will likely be held at the Herbert Young Community Center in Cary or at Millbrook High Basketball Gym. Further details will be provided ONLY to those who register.
