Open Gym at Crook County High SchoolFriday, October 09, 2009 By Dillon Dees
Do you have some free time? If so, you should come to open gym. Open gym is every Monday and Wednesday at seven P.M. we need more players down there, so if you can come, and enjoy playing basketball you should come. Below I will explain to you what goes on during open gym, why it’s fun, who runs it, and why it’s a good place to be. First of all, open gym is for boys in the 8th grade and older. Head coach Mr. Lowenbach is in charge at open gym. Mr. Lowenbach is consistent and almost always opens the gym, and most of his athletes appreciate that. Those of us who come to open gym are getting ready for basketball season because in the winter we move right into basketball practice. Open gym goes on during the fall, after basketball season, and a little bit during the summer. Secondly, open gym is enjoyable for any one who like playing basketball. Everyone who comes to open gym consistently has fun, and becomes a better basketball player. If you want to get better at basketball, and have fun at the same time open gym is a great place for you. Coach Lowenbach is also good for helping you improve your basketball skills. Coming to open gym can also help build a winning basketball tradition in Crook County. Finally, open gym is just a good place to be. Coming to open gym will keep people exercised and active. It also helps kids stay off the streets and out of bad influences like drugs and alcohol. If students consistently come to open gym they are less likely to get into those bad influences. I have a lot of passion for basketball and I think everyone who can come should come. In conclusion, if you have the time you should come to open gym because it’s a fun place to be, it keeps kids out of trouble, and it helps people work on basketball skills. During open gym all we do is play five on five full court games, that’s pretty enjoyable in my opinion. If you want to play basketball come to open gym, I hope to see you there.
