The Kingston Komets website is currently undergoing a transition. It will be back up shortly!!
The Kingston Komets AAU basketball organization will again be coordinating a
food drive/fundraiser to benefit The Queens Galley. We are focused on
helping them with their summer kids meal program. The Queens Galley takes on
the responsibility of feeding over 100 kids in our community all summer
long. We have attached a flier listing the items they are in need of. There
is also a strong need for a commercial ice maker. All financial
contributions will go towards purchasing the ice maker.
"It may be difficult to imagine a homeless 5 year old. It is an image that
most people almost refuse to conjure because it is too painful. It is easy
to think that the face of homelessness lives only on the adult population
and far to easy to brush it aside and say never me."
Our collection date will be Wednesday August 1st from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the
Kingston Plaza ball field. Please forward this email to anyone who you think
will be willing to help. Thank you

Another Komets season has basically come to end. By any measure it was again
a huge success. We were able to add another boys team, 4th grade, so we had
9 teams competing all over the Northeast. We expanded our schedule so we
could play against some of the best competition available. We again hosted a
great tournament in Kingston, helping our program and our community.
Our teams were very successful, but it goes beyond wins and losses for our
program. Our players were forced to handle themselves properly under some
very difficult circumstances at times. We practice more than most programs
do and we try to provide fundamentals that players can use to be successful
in the future. We again played a whole season never having played a player
on a team they were not eligible to play on. Some programs say it’s OK to cheat
because "everybody does it", but we don’t. We feel it is important to stress
to our players the importance of doing things the right way and not always the easy way.
We would like to thank all our volunteer coaches. It costs
them money to take the time to coach our children. We should all take the
time to thank any of our many coaches when you see them around. Also, we
want to thank all the parents who helped drive other players to and from
practices and tournaments, bought drinks and lunches, and allowed players to
stay in their rooms when we traveled. These are just some of the reasons why
our program belongs to all of us, not just a few. You should all take pride in
what we have accomplished over the last 5 years.
If you have not done so already, please turn your uniforms into your coach
as soon as possible. Our uniforms were custom made so we can’t just order
new ones if we are missing some.
Thanks to everyone and we look forward to next year!!!
