Congrats to Joseph Graziani of the Orangemen for winning the DICK’S Sporting Goods Week 2 Player of the Week! Joseph covered the stat sheet in the Orangemen’s narrow win over the Seminoles. Joseph had 13 points, 3 rebound, 6 assists, and 4 steals. His steal and basket with under two minutes to go essentially iced the game. Joseph, you are the man!

Congratulations to Danny Smyth of the Celtics (NBA) for winning the DICK’S Sporting Goods Week 1 Player of the Week! In the Celtics 55-48 win over the Cavaliers last week, Danny had 24 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. Down the stretch, Danny did a little bit of everything to lift the Celtics – scoring, boxing out, and getting steals. More importantly, Danny did it the right way. Danny didn’t argue with the officials, he didn’t gloat in front of the other team, and he was a great team player. Great job, Danny!!

TeamPages App –
Havertown Hoops also has a mobile phone application that allows you to view and sync your child’s schedule, communicate with your team, and mark your child’s attendance for practices/games.

If you click one of the events, you can get directions to the facility and mark your child’s attendance for the event.
- The Messages tab allows you to send alerts/emails to other members of your team.

Cancelations -
If we have to postpone an event because of weather, here are the four channels of communication. Please note: we will only send a notification if the event is canceled.

In order to receive text alerts, you need to add your cell number and cell service provider to your child’s account on the system you registered them on.
Each player can only have one phone number linked.
