Both men’s and women’s basketball teams at Kirkwood Community College are getting ready for the season.
Every day the men have been practicing in the afternoon. “We want our practices to have high energy and be very competitive.  We put a major emphasis on competing with everything we do,” said Head Coach Bryan Petersen. “We usually start about 12:45.”
The women’s team has also been actively preparing for the start of the season. They have high expectations coming off a championship win back in 2017.  
They hit the weights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. “We are excited for the official season to start in October,” explained Freshman Amara Lipsey.
The guys kick off their season with a couple of jamborees. The ICCAC Juco Jamboree takes place on Oct. 6 in Ames.
The following week they head to Elgin, Ill. for the Elgin Juco Jamboree. These games are going to test all the offseason work they put in.
The women kick off their season on Oct. 7 at the Iowa State Jamboree in Ames.
Kirkwood is also holding a Jamboree for the women’s team on Sunday, Oct. 14. Students, faculty and staff can get in free with their EagleCard. The games take place at Johnson Hall.
