2015-16 COUGAR BASKETBALL SEASON
Boys’ Basketball Coaches Message:
Crosby High School’s Boys Basketball team invites you to come support them this season. They will be putting their hard work and dedication on display while making their season the most memorable yet. You can plan on seeing the great teamwork, sportsmanship, up-tempo, and aggressive defense that has become the backbone of Crosby’s success.
Here at Crosby we have worked hard to create a family bond among the players with the goal of again becoming district champions. In addition to creating team chemistry, we will stress the fundamentals of the game, strength and conditioning. We also strive to help them grow as young men, and an athlete, as well as to prepare them for the challenges that they will face in their transition into adulthood. The team’s hard work and dedication will pay off this season so be sure to come out to cheer them on.
It is a great honor to be the head basketball coach at Crosby High School. As one of the most successful athletic programs in the greater Houston area, Crosby strives for championships each and every year.

Pre-Season – The basketball athletic class will focus on skill development and strength/conditioning in the pre-season. Each day will be used to improve on one or more of the following concepts: individual basketball skills, team play, strength & conditioning and team preparation for the season. This will also be a time of evaluation. Each player will be evaluated so when it is time for basketball try-outs we will have a familiarity with what each player brings to the team. Players who are not at a level that is ready for high school basketball will be treated fairly and informed of their chances with an honest approach. They will be encouraged to look at the opportunity to be a student assistant for our team, join another sport or move to a physical education class.
Season – The players who make the basketball team and players who become student assistants will stay in the basketball athletic period throughout the basketball season. During the season, the athletic period becomes an extension of our basketball practices. We use the period for fundamental work, weight training, conditioning and practice time.
Post-Season – Players who play baseball or came from football will most likely leave our class to rejoin that sport’s athletic period. These players will also be allowed to return to the basketball athletic period every Tuesday in the off-season until the 1st day of spring football begins. The remaining players in our basketball athletic period will be part of our off-season basketball program. The focus of our post-season program is on improving as a basketball player and team for the next season.
Expectations for students in our basketball period:
1. Be on Time
2. Have a Positive Winning Attitude
3. Be Coachable
4. Treat Others With Respect
5. Work Hard
Grades: Follow all expectations and your grades will reflect that.
Dress: Players will be provided with practice gear (shirt & shorts) and a locker to keep all valuables. Players must supply their own combination locks to be placed on lockers (Except for the first week of 7th period evaluation time).
