- Note: The winter basketball program this year was a great success even though there was low enrollment. This year Kenosha Unified School District went paperless only letting our league have our sign up forms on line and not handed out in the schools like in the past. This is what lead to low enrollment. Most parents were very unhappy that we were not able to hand the forms out in school to their children. Due to the low enrollment we had to cancel the K-1st grade league this year. We were able to move most of the players up to the 2nd and 3rd grade league. We also had a problem with the booking of the gym. Another group bumped us from the normal time we have had for the last several years. I suggest we have the permit for the gym in no later than June 1, 2011 for the 2012 basketball season. Although we had a few minor set backs we were able to have a very great year and I have heard nothing but positive feedback from the parents. I set up an email account for the league and face book page to open up the communication with the parents and that worked very well. The concerns that I have for the 2012 season as far as equipment are one or two air pumps for the basketballs. I would also like to have a first aid kit on hand for any minor injuries the kids may have. I will be working with Tim Kitzman and the Kenosha Unified School district during the start of the school year to find a way to get our sign up forms and information about our league to every child in kindergarten through 5th grade so our number will be greater next year. The parents have responded great to this type of learning basketball league and my goal for next year is to increase our numbers to make this a very strong city wide basketball program.
