While the current flavor of the month is football, Lady Leopards basketball coach Jerry King is already preparing the next generation of upcoming basketball stars now.
The Banks County Lady Leopards’ basketball program is setting an instructional fall league for girls in fifth through seventh grades.
According to King, the league is designed to work on the fundamentals of the game as well as to instruct the man-to-man defense. Additional lessons will be taught on the underlying “read and react” offense style.
With four practice sessions, five games and three combination practice and games scheduled, King is looking for 28-32 players to make the league.
