Little Tartars Basketball
This is Ayla's first year on the team and it has been incredible to see her grow.
Throughout the season Ayla has not given up. She has learned so much about
basketball and herself. If you tell Ayla how she can improve, she works double
time to make it happen. She has no fear on the court and will do whatever she
has to do. Ayla does not complain, she doesn't question things that we do, and
she approaches all that she does with a smile and a positive attitude. It has
been impressive as coaches to see her grow and improve in just a few short
months. We are so excited for her future as an athlete and the things that she
has and will accomplish! Way to go, Ayla!
David has really proven to us as coaches this past month that he is very deserving of this recognition. David is one of the most driven and dedicated athletes. At the beginning of the season, you could see that he was very nervous on the court. However, it has been such a journey seeing him grow in himself as a player on and off the court. David has gained so much confidence and continues to have an incredibly positive attitude no matter what. David has improved as a player and you can see that in the points he has been putting on the board. We admire David's commitment to this team and to improving for himself and his teammates. David does anything and everything with no complaints and encourages those around him. We are so proud of how far he has come and for his future!
