Basketball Men's-Varsity B
2017 - 2018
Head Coach: Andrew Gale
Men's Varsity B Basketball under Head Coach Andrew Gale and Assistant Coach Bo Cramer will continue to be a program that provides excellent skill development and a competitive schedule and atmosphere. Traditionally, the Varsity B program has helped a number of players make the jump to the Varsity A program. Recent examples are Nate Friend '17 (Norte Dame De Namur), Willie Swindells '16 (Chapman), Louis-Roger Fils-Aime '16 (Concordia University) Danny Levitt '15, Matt Dean '14, and Pat Saunders '08 (Princeton). The B program schedule is always a tough with matchups with Hebron, Lee, Kents Hill as well as B programs at Brewster, Northfield Mount Hermon and many others.
The ABC's of the Varsity B program will serve as our guide and foundation. They are as follows:
Accountability to one’s self, teammates, and the community is a major cornerstone of the program. Accountability will be measured in a variety of ways. Our belief is that athletics is merely a microcosm of life; individual and team sports provide various opportunities for life experiences that expand beyond the court.
Balance is a fundamental goal that we will strive for every day in this program; the understanding that the student’s time at the New Hampton School should be effectively utilized. By growing and stretching beyond the game, players will benefit from the life-long effects on how to identify yourself. In turn, relationships with others will take on greater quality and purpose. When players leave the program, my hope is for each young person to place a higher value on who they are.
Courage to look outside the person that first - arrived at the school, as well as the courage to sacrifice for the good of the whole, not simply for .yourself.
Compete every day to your full potential, to invest in yourself physically and emotionally towards something reach your full potential. It is the belief in this program that has major effects on the individual’s growth.
Commit to the school, the team and the coaches; both in class and on the court. My players will exemplify what it means to be an athlete at New Hampton. Our athletes are committed to “Husky Pride” and the New Hampton community.
