Panthers Give Back

Some of the greatest gifts do not come with price tags. Last Saturday many of our varsity basketball players took time to attend Phil's basketball game. Phil is a long time Panther fan who rarely misses a game. Phil competed with his basketball team in the Special Olympics basketball tournament in Belton. Having all the players in attendance nearly brought Phil to tears. It's a memory he will never forget!

Jr Panther Jammers

Competitive basketball in the Raymore area has taken on a new look! The Jr Panther Jammers basketball season is in full swing. Although individual teams, the Jammers coaches communicate regularly with Coach Jermain in an effort to instill the Ray-Pec philosophy. The players are in grades 3rd-7th grade and compete in tournaments and leagues all over the Kansas City area. The Jammers teams focus heavily on the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting and teamwork.

Coach Jermain was on the Sonic Locker Room Show. Outlining the team, philosophies, and other items make for a good listen.
