Coaches Organizing AAU Basketball

9D Hoops hopes to field teams for grades 4-9 

Tyrone Searight, who coaches the Haldane girls’ varsity basketball team and a 17U boys’ team for the AAU New York Pride, and Jim McDermott, a Haldane parent who directs the Westchester Lady Bears AAU program, are organizing local AAU teams for the spring under a program called 9D Hoops. Early interest suggests there will be three girls’ and possibly two boys’ teams.

The season for girls in grades 7 to 9 will begin the week of March 14. The season for boys and girls in grades 4 to 6 will begin the week of April 4. Each team will practice once or twice per week and participate in weekend tournaments. The cost is $350 plus a $75 uniform fee for the elementary grades and $550 plus $125 uniform fee for middle-school grades.
