Richie Parker to Coach Boys 14U
September 10, 2015
We are happy to announce that Richie Parker has rejoined the Castle Knights coaching staff for the 2015-2016 season. Richie served as coach during the 2014 winter campaign but left for a full-time opportunity with BSNY, running basketball camps and coaching several of their teams. He will jump right in as tryouts and the Fall/Winter season gets underway in two weeks.
For those that do not recall, Richie was a scholastic star at Manhattan Center High School and ranked in the Top 20 in the country for the class of 1995. He went on to star at Long Island University, leading LIU to NCAA and NIT postseason tournaments, and to play professionally in the CBA and the USBL.
We look forward to Richie’s return and having him lead our student-athletes in the upcoming year.
Castle Ends the 2014-2015 Campaign with BBQ
September 2, 2015
Castle ended its season with its Second Annual BBQ Celebration. Over 100 players and coaches from all Castle teams, as well as many parents and siblings, were present and enjoyed way too much food. There were spirited hoops games, both pick-up and organized, including some memorable match-ups of the 17U squad versus the 15U team. Also, each coach was presented with an award by their respective teams and were lauded by their players for their tremendous contributions. A great family experience!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend! Stay tuned as tryouts start in four weeks.
