Open to boys and girls ages 5 and 6, this program is a great introduction to basketball. Program emphasis includes instruction on dribbling, passing, shooting, and defense. Your Lil’ Dribbler will develop social skills working with other players and coaches, learn the value of teamwork, and get all the exercise basketball provides, all while creating a ‘love for the game’ and having fun. During this six-week program, teams will practice for the first two Saturdays, followed by a 30-minute practice and 30-minute game each of the remaining four Saturdays. Teams will consist of no more than 9 players and games are played on an 8 foot goal. This program is designed to inspire each child’s interest in the game while developing them for success off the court as well. Register early as space will be limited to the first 36 players who register.
