“We always take a couple weeks off, then you get started up again,” said Burrell head coach Rob Niederberger. “It lets the season ‘digest’. And it’s not just for the players, I need it too.”
So, what does “starting up again” entail for Burrell (19-8)?
“Typically, we’ll go about two to three days a week in the spring,” said Niederberger. “That will go to, like, four-to-five days a week in the summer. And we’ll play summer leagues.”
Niederberger speculated that the Burrell team would go to team camp this summer, although it hasn't been planned out yet. Last year, the Bucs traveled to Erie and stayed at Mercyhurst for team camp.
As always, however, Burrell’s offseason basketball activities will be directly influenced by the number of players available. Many Burrell basketball players compete in other sports during the fall and spring.
