Basketball - Girls' JV


Overview

Overview

Similar in approach to the varsity squad, the girls' junior varsity basketball program emphasizes the players' personal growth and sportsmanship as well as their skills and understanding of the game. Roughly half of the varsity team in any given year is comprised of players who played JV for one or two years, so there is significant coordination and communication between the varsity and JV coaches; JV players wishing to work on their games in the off-season are invited to meet with the varsity coaches when the season ends in February. Finally, the game schedule is full and competitive — and in recent years the team has enjoyed extraordinary success when measured in wins and losses.
