The Carteret Girls Basketball team is a collection of talented, athletic, smart females who thrive on competition, improvement, and good sportsmanship. It is a lot of hard work, but it all pays off on the court and in life, as they are stronger people for the efforts they put forth each and every day. It isn't always about winning, but we always aim to play with a winning attitude. We always play hard and try our best regardless of the score. CMS Girls Basketball team puts a major emphasis on communication, attitude, skills, and effort to help ensure growth and success for each and every female athlete. The girls practice daily and the season goes from November through February. The girls play games both at home and at neighboring schools (all transportation provided by school).
In addition to games, the girls have many opportunities outside of the school to expand their knowledge of the game and help the girls be successful in all aspects of life. Some of these include extra clinics, attending high school and college games, and visits from high level basketball players. In the past we have gone to Drexel University to see a Women’s College Basketball game, and the girls have also had the opportunity to participate in a basketball clinic run by the Junior Knicks. We participate in volunteer experiences to give back to our community too. The girls have a great time together while building skills to help ensure success in all future endeavors.
Girls Basketball Enrichment
This program is meant to help young girls improve their basketball skills, teach them the game, help them learn life lessons, and have fun! We have also brought in coaches who have strong backgrounds in skill development to help the girls enhance their game. This program is meant for girls at all levels and its main goal is development and fun. In its first year (2018-2019), Coach Greene was able to provide 40 girls the opportunity to learn and play basketball in a positive and upbeat setting.
