2021-22 Harding Basketball Information

Corby Lucas
We wanted to be in touch with some important information about basketball season at Harding Academy. An adaptation we made to Covid last year was to create a developmental team on the boys side, which proved to be a huge success for the growth of those less experienced players. We played a series of intra-squad "blue vs. white" games where officials were assigned and they played games against each other in our gym. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and so we have decided to keep that model moving forward. This year, we would like to replicate that model on the girls side as well. 
Our boys participation numbers are traditionally in the mid 40's and our girls in the mid 20's so that consideration has to be taken into account. The numbers may be such that we only have a varsity girls team and a developmental team. We feel a situation where our girls can learn and develop while playing against each other is much better than playing opponents who cut players and have JV teams that may be as talented as some varsity teams in the league. 
Please reach out to Coach Jason Embry for any questions on the boys program or Coach Luke Countryman for any questions on the girls program. We are confident this is the best model for development in our basketball program.
