NYO Girls basketball try-outs held, with a little help from our friends

NYO held their girls’ basketball try-outs on Sunday, with rousing success, as over 200 girls found their way to the Chastain Park gym to go through the drills in front of an eager group of coaches.

An important part of that process was the help and direction provided by 5 girls from the Pace basketball team, who gave up their time on a Sunday afternoon to come work with young girls on their dribbling, shooting and other basketball skills, as they led them through a shooting station in the try-outs.

NYO is grateful for the help and presence of these girls, for the teaching they do and the skills they impart, and, most importantly, for the great role models they are for our younger program girls, as they get to see where hard work, practice and dedication to a sport will lead you.
