The Lyons Junior Varsity (JV) Basketball Team is sponsored by Mr. Sanchez and Mr. Rivera. The objective is to teach commitment, respect, and responsibility to the players. We meet once a week and practice basic basketball skills in hopes of making the Lyons Varsity Basketball team or any other teams in the future.
We practice October thru March, and in April and May, we have an in-school tournament where players give themselves a team name and play against each other. It's a great way to see progress and a good opportunity to learn to compete at a high level, and learn good sportsmanship.
Mr. Sanchez stresses that his first responsibility is to make sure he inspires his players to be respectful and responsible young adults, and then he's a basketball coach. The Lyons family enforces the 'No Pass, No Play' policy, and Mr. Sanchez does have conversations with teachers and parents to make sure all is well with his players.
You can watch your Lyons Junior Varsity players play competitive games on Fridays during April and May!
