TeamSnap Invite: We will be sending everyone a TeamSnap invite 1-week prior to the academy's start date.  Please accept the invitation and download the TeamSnap App on your phone if you haven’t done so already. We are going to be using TeamSnap this session to:
  • Communicate with the parents: You will be receiving automated e-mail reminders from TeamSnap as well as e-mails from the camp director - Billy Goldstein. We also recommend parents use the TeamSnap chat tool to communicate with coaches and other parents.
  • Schedule Calendar: You can see all the upcoming practices on the team schedule tab. If I make any changes to the schedule (i.e. practice gets moved to a different field or cancelled), you will be notified. 
  • Availability: The availability tool is the best way to let the coaches know if your child will be attending or not. Just click the Schedule Tab, click on the date of the practice, and select Going, Maybe or No. 
If you already have TeamSnap, and this is not the email you used to register through TeamSnap, please send me the correct email. This way you don’t need to create a whole new profile.
If you don't receive the TeamSnap invite 1-week prior to the start date, please check your SPAM folder. Still don't see anything, e-mail your Camp Director (see contact information below)

Check-in Procedures:
Northside students can walk to the gym right after-school. Coaches will be ready to start sign-in at 1:15pm. Non Northside students are welcome to arrive as soon as they are able.

Check-out Procedures:
As part of your registration process, you were asked to pick one of two check-out preferences:

  • Child Checkout: Your child can check themselves out with the coach after practice to meet their parents in the parking lot, walk home, get a ride from a friend/family member, etc.
  • Parent Checkout: The child will stay with the coach until a parent, or authorized adult, physically checks them out with the coach. We will not let kids leave the camp to meet their parent, or authorized adult, unless that parent chooses child checkout.
If you need to change your check-out preference at anytime, please e-mail the Camp Director (see below for contact information)
What to bring to Camp:
All participants should bring/wear athletic clothing, a gym bag, basketball shoes or running shoes, a snack, and plenty of water.

All basketballs and sports gear will be provided.
Camp Culture:
Our camp culture is the MEAL plan.
  • Make Mistakes
  • Effort
  • Accountability
  • Learning
In order to play for The Divide Grizzlies, everyone must agree to our MEAL Plan Club Culture. A healthy Meal Plan can give an individual the nourishment it needs to grow and development. Our MEAL Plan Culture does the same for our Club. You are going to make mistakes and that is okay because you are always going to give maximum effort, take accountability for your actions on and off the court, and learn from your mistakes. That is how you will grow as a player. That is how we will grow as a club.
Camp Life Skills:
The Life Skills that we teach at our club are listed below. We don't expect our players to be perfect at all the life skills listed below all the time. This is a learning process and we will use the game of basketball to help teach life lessons that will help them in life. We just ask that all players have a positive attitude as we challenge them physically and mentally to develop the life skills listed below. It is about the journey.
  • Respect, Sportsmanship, Leadership, Confidence, Effort, Responsibility, Teamwork, and Integrity
The ROOTS of the Game:
Players must always show respect to the ROOTS of the game.  
  • Rules
  • Opponents
  • Officials/coaches
  • Teammates
  • Self
Camp Rules:
Our Academy Rules are simple but closely regulated.  
  • Be Nice
  • Be Safe
  • Have Fun!
Concussion Awareness:
We follow “Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports” protocol. The Fact Sheet For Youth Sports Parents can be found via the following link:
