Don't have the league. The best players (athletes) are playing baseball still. the other kids who just play for fun show up shouldn't be there. The teams should be good, not ny mills kids who cant play at all. Get b p, it will make their kid look good
If you say so!! Go watch game. While you'll see some kids who've never played before, you will also see some very athletic kids playing. Sounds like you dont like basketball, which is fine, but then why voice your unneeded opinion? It seems to be based on hate anyways

This is what we deal with in Rome...coaches during the summer, VOLUNTEERING, and it's still not good enough for some people. How dare they have to work late. How dare they have a family. How dare they miss a game. How dare a kid miss the game because they are having a family vacation.

People complain about the coaches. But where are all the school coaches???? These are volunteer coaches giving up 2 summer nights a week to HELP out. But people will complain.

People complain about the league...it's unorganized. Why is it unorganized? No fancy uniforms for each team? Are the Rome teams doing something they shouldn't do? Are they not there each week to play? I'm confused how a league can be so unorganized but yet have 12 kids at games.

But again, people complain about the league....but take a second and tell me what other community has a summer basketball league in their backyard? And if the league was in Utica or Whitesboro, how many Rome kids would actually commit to playing??? But I'm sure the geniuses on here already figured all that out.

It's run and gun basketball . What are these kids really learning?? They don't run plays it is YMCA basketball. No TEAM chemistry at all , just a select group of kids dribbling down the court coast to coast with no intentions of PASSING the ball to their teammates. How is that teaching these kids the game of basketball? I was disgusted watching the two Rome teams playing each other tonight. The varsity head coach not teaching the kids T E A M BASKETBALL complete waste of time. The future of Rome basketball is in big trouble.

I actually feel like the varsity coach, has done a fine job with his group of kids this summer! No practices leaves minimal time to teach those who've never played, but maybe thats something in future years that can be rectified. Those that have played, multiple levels, are running plays.

It's summer league basketball gentleman. There are no practices. They are playing to get extra games in. If you don't like the style...then coach a team next summer.

Don't have the league, because it turns kids who who want to learn the game away from basketball. Nick and Bruce etc, are good coaches in aau, but they don't care about any other kids outside of rome. they are developing for rome high school. And the dudes from Whitesboro, ny mills, forget his name, stay home please.

Dont have the league? Yea, SURE! The only ones who might be discouraged, are kids who've never played. Solution, If its your kids first time playing, wait until fall leagues or winter leagues, where teams have practices. Its on the parents, to not have their kids first time playing, be in a league with no practices.

Dylan gratch is playing d2 right now at roberts. Parkmond and Griggs at juco. Gullo (didn't play senior year but was 2 year varsity player) is at d'youville. Haga should be playing at suny this year. On top of that u have kids playing another sport in college - eychner, evans, etc. The program has a long way to go but it's hard to argue that it's not getting better.
