Lady Tigers look to improve in the offseason
Progress. That is what Green Forest girls basketball coach Kyle Farrar is hoping to see this off-season. Having completed three weeks of practice in June and heading to a camp in Rolla, Mo., next weekend, he believes progress is being made.
"For us, it has been a matter of getting some of those younger girls reps this off-season," Farrar said.
The Lady Tigers only lost two seniors from last year's team, but Farrar said Green Forest must find an identity.
"As time went on last year, I felt like we gained more and more confidence," Farrar said. "And now it is important that this confidence we gained carries into the rest of the off-season and on to next year." Farrar added that the trip to Missouri is always a great bonding experience for the team.
"They have a rafting trip we do each year," Farrar said. "We always split up into two rafts and race to see who finishes first."
Farrar said while it is important his team continues to work hard, they also need to take this time to be kids while they can.
"Don't get me wrong; I hope they work on their individual games and are able to take away a lot from the Rolla camp, but being able to relax can help them just as much, I feel like," Farrar said. "I mean, they have been going full-speed for a while now."
