Avalon Youth Basketball is continuing to go strong.  The players are beginning to gel as a team.  They are listening and learning from their coaches.  Coach Z has really ensured the success of the program his tireless hours are really making a difference.  The battles on the court have been exciting to watch as each player is getting better at their skills.  There are three games left in the season.
