78PYC Flag Football Post-Season Dedicated to the Memory of Jon Kaye.

This year we are dedicating our post-season to the memory of Jon Kaye, who passed away earlier this year after contracting a rare terminal illness. I knew Jon for years and coached his son Henry in baseball for a few years. His son Danny played in our very first flag football league 6 years ago when we had 40 kids and then became a referee. Both boys played for our Bulldog travel baseball teams and Jon was assistant coach for Danny’s team. His wife Joyce was always there to cheer her crew on and is still a great supporter of the 78th. The Kaye family is and always will be part of our family.

In memory of Jon, all players will be getting a “Livestrong” style JK Bracelet (see picture), and our organization will be making a donation of $1,000 to Brooklyn Community Foundation through The Kaye Family Charitable Fund. This Fund provides financial support to youth sports programs in underserved low income communities throughout Brooklyn, which is a great cause and very appropriate for us. If anyone would like to make their own donation, please go to the following link — http://www.brooklyncommunityfoundation.org/kaye-family-charitable-fund

BASIC CLINICS
Using fun games, the sessions will teach skills that apply to all athletic endeavors – balance, weight transfer, gross motor movements, flexibility, and more, and then shown their specific application to basketball. The games will turn to basketball-specific actions.

In the mix we will add the fundamentals of building strength, conditioning, a proper diet to attain the body’s proper chemical balances and to avoid obesity, and teach them how to gain mental control.

PONY KINGS ACADEMY ADVANCED WINTER BASKETBALL
This program, for advanced 7 & 8 year olds, will be comprised of teams selected from players who register and attend a player evaluation and are selected to be on a team. The season will begin with team practices and end with games against the other teams in the Pony Division. We anticipate creating 4 teams after evaluations. The games will be a tournament over the last 4 weeks of the session and the teams will then play in mid-March at our Basketball Championship Day.

There will be a mandatory evaluation held the weekend of November 8-9, specific date and time will be announced soon. A child registered for this program who is not accepted will be moved to one of the basic clinics. An email with evaluation results will be sent after the evaluation along with instructions on how to choose another slot, on a first come, first served basis, for those not accepted. A credit for the difference will be issued if your child is moved to a basic clinic. No refunds will be issued so please review the other sessions below carefully.
