Due to the large number of athletes participating in basketball, attendance at practice is mandatory in an effort to provide a fair opportunity for the student athletes.  If your son is unable to attend practice, it is their responsibility to let the coach know.  Practice missed the day before a game will possibly result in your child not participating in that game. Mr. Schaefer & Mr. Billman both teach at the IEF School.  Parents can send in a written note or email me us at gschaefer@gbtps.org or cbillman@gbtps.org.  The following attendance rules will be enforced:


  1. 2 unexcused absences = miss 1 game
  2. 3 unexcused absences = miss 2 games
  3. 4 unexcused absences = removal from the team

*Unexcused absence is being present in school and missing practice without notifying the coach and receiving detention.


  • Schedule and directions to basketball games are on the School Website under “Athletics”.  ALL HOME GAMES ARE PLAYED AT GBMS!
  • Practices will be held Monday – Friday from 3:15 – 4:45.  Please make sure the proper arrangements are made to pick up your child promptly.  All practices will be held at GBMS.  Schedule subject to change.
  • To participate in an away basketball game, all students must ride the bus with the team to the game.  Students who will not be traveling home on the bus after a game must provide a written note/email from a parent/guardian signed and dated prior to the game to your coach.
  • Administration/teacher detention will take precedence over practices and games.
  • Students are encouraged to go for extra help in their academic classes and maintain a C average as per Board Policy.
