From the Mind of Missee!


As basketball wrapped up this past weekend, I tried to watch as many games as possible. I’m extremely impressed with our coaches, volunteers and unified partners. The passion and commitment that I saw was simply heartwarming. I was even more impressed with our athletes. SOHC showed a strong level of sportsmanship and a stronger level of skill and competitiveness.


I thought I would take this time to introduce you to another sport in which SOHC doesn’t currently compete, 3-on-3 basketball. Athletes are considered appropriate for 3-on-3 basketball if they do not possess the skills or stamina to participate in full court basketball. 3-on-3 basketball competition can be a means to assist athletes with lower ability levels to progress to full court play.


I certainly feel some of our skills players could make the transition to 3-on-3. I think there were also players playing full court that would be more successful on a half-court team. 3-on-3 teams included 5-6 athletes. some athletes would be more comfortable in a smaller group. Many of our athletes enjoy and grow from the inclusion of unified partners. I think many of our unified partners, especially the high school players that are aging off the youth teams, might enjoy coaching the 3-on-3 teams.


We will include 3-on-3 in our basketball registration next year. If this is something you might be interested in and want more info, don’t hesitate to contact me (sohcsports@gmail.com).



Until the next thought hits me,
