VT Premier Development League
Vermont Basketball Group (VBG) and Lone Wolf Athletics (LWA) are pleased to announce our collaborative effort offering a very unique and exciting opportunity for middle school girls basketball players. We have created a middle school age league called Vermont Premier Development League (VPDL). This league will include both hard core skill building coupled with high quality scrimmaging. Players in this league will be many of the top middle school aged players around the state and possibly surrounding states. This will be an invite only league to ensure the quality of players and overall scrimmaging quality is very high for this age group. In the winter of 2014/2015 we ran a "pilot" version of this league for the middle school girls (limited pilot version to 15 players, 2 teams) and it was highly successful with excellent feedback from the parents of players who were involved. Now we are expanding the program to have enough players to have four teams. In addition, to formalize this league we have created the VPDL name and logo. High quality reversible jerseys with the VPDL logo have been created and will be ordered for each attending player. This is a chance for these players to work together with very experienced coaches on becoming the best player they can be.
The players will practice/formally scrimmage 2X per week. Assuming we get 30-35 girls to sign-up we will go with (4) teams of approximately 8 players each and two teams will practice together on different time slots Monday nights and then on Saturdays the various teams will be mixed each week to play each other and train with each other. We will do our best to make the teams as even as possible and for those who want/need to carpool to get those players on the same teams. Monday nights we will be working solely on skill development for 1.5 hours (The Baird School Gym - Howard Center in South Burlington) 2 teams 6:15pm-7:45pm and other 2 teams 7:45pm-9:15pm, along with basic offensive and defensive movements needed for effective scrimmaging such as proper screen and role techniques and advanced defensive concepts. On Saturday afternoons (The Robert Miller Center in Burlington) we will be conducting two 1.5 hour sessions which will include game shooting and then live scrimmaging. Two teams will attend each session, times for each team will vary each week with game schedules at 1:00pm-2:30pm and 2:30pm-4:00pm. We will be starting mid November 2016 and ending mid February 2017.
