Just a few thoughts about the Junior Jazz program here in Morgan County.

From what I have seen, as both a coach(in years past) and a parent with 2 participants this year, it is a well run program and good for the kids. Parents step up to coach, and do their best to teach the basic principles of the game. The teams, at least in the girls divisions that I have watched, are about as even as you can get, with most games being played very close, and the ability of the players are spread out from team to team. I know both my girls are having a good time, and enjoy both the practices and the games. Thanks Coach Brian House and Dave Henry!
