Basketball in hoop.

Simsbury High School Girls Varsity basketball coach Sam Zullo and his staff and players will be leading these great new programs focusing on techniques and mastering the fundamentals of the game. 

Each program is designed for the beginner through experienced player who wants to build on their shooting, ball handling, passing, defense and rebounding skills through quality instruction, drills, scrimmages and games. The program creates a safe, fun and confidence building atmosphere through encouragement, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect. 

Participants should wear shorts or sweatpants, sneakers, bring plenty of water and a basketball (please write names on all equipment!). These programs will all be held at HJMS. 

Parent volunteers will be needed to act as coaches, and all volunteers will go through a coaching clinic with Coach Zullo before the season begins. Anyone who is interested in volunteering, please email Taryn Schrager at so that a list can be created.


The parent volunteer clinic will be held prior to the season starting
 - you will be emailed with more information.

Email lists for each team will be given to the adult coaches to help organize.
