Program: There will be two separate divisions. The 8:15 a.m. – 9:15 a.m. slot will be for beginners ages 5-7 that have limited experience. The baskets will be lowered to 8 feet. They will learn basic basketball skills, dribbling, layups and passing. The will play at least one 3 on 3 game daily. Most days they will play two games. We will keep score and there will be playoffs. They will learn teamwork and the rules. There will be a coach on the court at all times helping out. It is an introduction to basketball. The goal is for young people to learn basketball skills have fun and hopefully they’ll continue to play basketball. Please make sure the little person attending can reach an 8 foot hoop. If they can’t, I recommend not attending the clinic. It could become very frustrating. All participants receive a T-Shirt & Trophy
The 2nd time slot, ages 8 - 10 will be from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. This is for players in this age group that can reach a ten foot hoop. This group will play all their games on ten foot hoops. Part of the time will be spent on individual skill work. There will be at least one 3 on 3 game every session. Most sessions will have two games. The rules such as traveling & double dribble will be enforced. Passing the ball, moving without the ball and learning how to play defense will be taught. The goal for both groups is for everyone to have a positive experience about playing basketball. All participants will receive a T-Shirt & Trophy
Please sign up for the appropriate group.
