Behind the Scenes of Varsity Women’s Basketball

Written by Newspaper Staff Reporter Lexie Hunter

Allatoona’s Varsity Girls Basketball team has been hard at work this year to make this season as successful as possible. Practice normally begins with some concept drills, things they do within their playing style, then transitions to skill development and scrimmaging as practice moves along. Conditioning consists of agility drills, sprints, stadium runs, and mile runs. Pregame prep begins at 5:15 with players dressing and doing whatever they feel necessary to prepare them for the game. Coaches give final game prep at 5:30, and then players take the floor at 5:40. Coach Bouyer says, “Not sure that basketball is harder than other sports as they all require the same amount of discipline, focus, and preparation, but putting the ball in the basket is a challenge in itself.”
