Pre CMU Team Camp Info

Wizards,

Just a friendly reminder that our last practice before Mesa is tomorrow at Windsor Middle School. Juniors and seniors are from 1-3 and Freshman and Sophomores are from 5-7.  See calendar here.  

Mesa reminders: We have received most of the payments for the charter bus. However, we have not received many of the medical waivers previously emailed out. Please bring both payment for the charter and your medical waiver to practice tomorrow.  Here is the link to the waiver.  

The charter bus is scheduled to leave at 5:30 am sharp on Monday morning. Please arrive at 5:15. What should you bring? Basketball uniforms, shoes, and socks. Flip flops, extra underwear, extra comfortable clothing, hat, sunscreen, and toiletries., and a towel. Water bottle, food, and snacks. A pillow and bedding, I’m bringing a sleeping bag. The kids will be living on the CMU campus for a week. Have your athlete bring some extra money in case they want to buy late night pizza, walk across the street and get a smoothie, or do something else. The price of the camp covers the games, lodging, and most meals. If the athlete wants to do anything else, that is what the extra money is for.  Please pack efficiently, just like our dribble, the charter bus will have limited space for all the bags.  

What time will we get back on Thursday? I am anticipating an early evening arrival back home. We will have games on Thursday morning and potentially into early afternoon. The bus will leave after the last game.

We are taking 4 teams and this will be an awesome and powerful team building experience.  Go Wizards.  Don't hesitate to email me any questions you have at jonathan.rakiecki@weldre4.org

Lastly, I want to thank all the players who helped run our kids camp this week!  We had a huge turnout and the boys did a great job building relationships with the kids in the community.

Basketball Update: June 13th

Wizards,

It has been a great 3 weeks of high school basketball!  Since the end of school we have practiced 7 times for a total of 14 hours, and we have competed in a total of 42 games at both the CU and UNC team camps.  Chemistry and brotherhood are being formed and our players play hard and with class.  Next week, June 13-19, we are giving the players a much deserved week off.  Please see our updated practice schedule as we lead up to the CMU team camp. We have added practice times at the end of our youth camp and due to the closure of the gyms at Windsor High School we will be practicing at WMS on Friday June 24th at two separate times due to gym space.  Please make those practices a priority as those will our last practices leading up to CMU.  We cannot guarantee playing time to players who do not make practice a priority.  

CMU Team Camp:  We are taking 4 teams to CMU and will be the highlight of our summer.  If you have yet to pay the additional $100 for the charter bus please do so by bringing a check made payable to WHS boys basketball at the next practice.  Here is the Medical Waiver form for CMU, please complete and bring to practice.  For more information about the camp click here.  We will be departing at 5:30 AM at the high school on June 27th.  

Youth Camp Update:  Coach Nicholls and I are excited about our youth camp June 20-21st.  Please help us spread the word to your friends, family members, and neighbors.  Registration closes at midnight on June 19th.  We are optimistic that we will reach our 75 camper goal.  We will contact the players directly who we would like helping run our youth camp in the next week.  

Enjoy the week off!  Go Wizards!

Coach Jones continues to give players the opportunity to weight train with the football program.  See the weight schedule here.    I would continue to encourage our players to bring a teammate and improve their strength and athletic ability.  
 
For those of you attending the CU team camp, please complete this medical waiver asap.  We will be taking 4 teams.  Parents please be patient with schedules, we do not get those until the day or two before camp, we will email the schedule out as soon as we get them.  Until then, please make sure CU has your son's medical waiver.  
 
The UNC team camp will be a week after the CU team camp.  We will be taking 3 teams.  This is the biggest and best team camp in the state.  I will be forwarding you information from them as soon as I receive it.  It will also require a medical waiver.

Windsor Basketball Spring 2022 Newsletter

Wizards,

Please read this communication carefully as there is important information relevant to our off-season workout program.  

The secret is in the dirt is our offseason theme.  This was a phrase University of Texas coach Chris Beard used while at Texas Tech.  This mantra means that the secret to success and improvement lies in our willingness to get dirty and do the work.   If we say we want to be great next season, we have to be willing to get dirty, do the work others are unwilling to do, this is especially true in the weight room and in an empty gym or playground.  

Weight Training:  Coach Jones has given our basketball program the opportunity to weight train with the football program this offseason.   This includes a focus on functional explosive strength.  We believe we could all benefit from the weight room.  Strength and explosiveness touches every aspect of basketball.  From being able to guard your yard, to absorbing contact and finishing at the rim, and securing a tough 50/50 ball or rebound.  The stronger, more explosive athlete wins most of the time!   The great news is that we can all improve in this area, the secret is in the dirt.  Are we willing to get dirty?  During the months of April and May the basketball team will weight train on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4:00-5:30.  Click here for the football calendar.  

15 K Club:  Putting the basketball in the hoop is at the very core of the game of basketball.  Last season our team made 40% of its field goal attempts. During league play, we made 22% of our 3 point attempts. The fact of the matter is we need to be able to shoot the basketball at a higher percentage.  Do we have players willing to do the work?  To get dirty?  The coaching staff at Windsor High School believes we do.  

We have put together an offseason shooting program that is not fancy, in fact it is dirty hard work.  The 15 K club is 153 days long and will start in April and End in August.   In each workout players will shoot 300 shots based on position played.  The routine provided can be adjusted by each athlete to fit their needs.  Regardless, athletes will shoot 300 shots per workout.  What is great about this program is that you can track your improvement so that you know you are getting better, not hoping you are.  When the coaching staff opens the gym up this spring, each athlete will complete this shooting program.  

Next fall, players who document and track their progress over the offseason and have made 15,000 shots will have earned a 15k club t-shirt and even better will come into the fall season a better basketball player.  Click here for the program, each player should make a copy of the document.  

Basketball Calendar:  Click here for our offseason basketball calendar.  We will start basketball workouts the week of April 11th.  Please save this calendar and check it periodically as changes are made.  

Incoming Freshman:  Incoming freshmen are able to begin working out with all of Windsor High School’s sport programs beginning May 1st.  We are excited to get to work with the class of 2026.  If you know of a basketball player interested in playing basketball at WHS please share this information with them.  

Summer Basketball:  Our second season is approaching quickly.  This is a busy month that will include a season's worth of games, practices, and our youth camp.  We are anticipating having 4 teams this summer and next basketball season.   We will be emailing out links in the coming weeks that will allow you to register and pay for summer basketball online, keep your eye out.
