One downfall to the three week high school summer practice period is that it's basically a free-for-all. Each sport has the opportunity to practice but coaches then have to work together on scheduling.
For smaller schools like South Harrison, it can be difficult to get numbers at practice. The Hawks' girls basketball team is managing just fine with a smaller group.
They're working on individual skills like shooting, ball handling and offensive maneuvers. Head Coach Joe Johnson said the defense is fine but his team needs to find a way to score more points in the upcoming season.
"We need ball handlers. We need people that can create off the dribble and can score themselves. In other words, we need at least two good all-around players, people that can shoot the ball outside, take the ball to the basket and set other people up for shots," said Coach Johnson.
