All parents of Girls Basketball team members are expected to attend this important and informative meeting.  This is a great opportunity for you to meet with your coach, ask questions about expectations and to learn more about the AMS Athletic Department.  See you there!

Tryouts will take place Nov. 1st- 3rd.  See tryout schedule below. Players are expected to attend all 3 of the tryout sessions in order to give our coaches more opportunity to evaluate each player.
