2019 Drake Summer Basketball Preview
Greetings Drake Boys Basketball Community,
Looking ahead to our summer program, we would like to preview a general overview of events and activities. Our hope is to involve as many boys in trainings and various level specific (Freshmen, JV, Varsity) competitive events as possible and wish to inquire about your son’s interest and availability to participate.
As in previous summers, we will participate in the Novato Summer League, host the annual Golden Gate Shootout (June 15th & 16th) and participate in local AAU (NBBA sponsored) weekend shootouts (typical schedule = Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Based on previous summer schedules, these aforementioned events will occur between June 16th and July 22nd.
As the summer league dates and shootouts are scheduled, we will update you via our Drake Basketball Summer InstaTeam group; DEMRD4. We ask all athletes and parents to join this InstaTeam group as the communication platform for all events as well as some of the additional training sessions we hope to conduct. Most of you are likely active, though dormant, InstaTeam members from last summer, but as we establish summer events, it will be vital for you and your son to actively receive notifications as members of this InstaTeam group. This InstaTeam group is distinct and separate from the past basketball season’s teams.
Understanding family and individual summer schedules evolve and change, we are requesting all level participants indicate their known availability by completing the Drake Varsity Summer 2019 Basketball Survey. Additionally, we are hoping to offer program-wide skill development clinics, likely held on Friday/Saturday, and for planning purposes, wish to gauge interest. Also, based on past experience, we need to account for player availability in order to meet our Summer League game and shootout commitments.
Golden Gate Shootout @ Drake High School (Varsity)
June 15 and 16th, 8am to 6pm, Game Times: TBD (will we play 3 games per day)
Purpose: As an annual host site for this community fundraiser for county athletes, we need Drake community member support in hosting this event and providing administrative support for visiting schools, coaches and officials. With that in mind, we will be reaching out in a future communication regarding volunteer opportunities with additional information specific to the annual GGSO held at Drake.
Summer League Participation Fee: In order to support our participation in Summer League games and AAU shootouts, participants are asked to pay a $150.00 fee covering our entrance costs.

On Behalf of the Drake Boys Basketball Coaching Staff,
