Introduction and Fundamentals: 

This is a fun introduction to basketball with a strong focus on learning the fundamentals of the sport. An instructor will lead the drills and introduce the "skill of the day". The first 45 minutes will be spent learning and practicing skills and the last half hour will be a game. Parents who volunteer to coach will help the children work on the skills, ensure even rotation of players during the games and guide the players during the games. For these leagues schedules and team assignments are mailed after Thanksgiving and will also be posted online. Teams are formed at random with an attempt to keep players with others from the same school. One buddy request per player is allowed before November 17. Both buddies must make the request for the pair to be placed on the same team. Times may shift slightly to accomodate enrollments at each level. Shirts will be distributed on the first day when the children meet their coaches. Parents are encouraged to coach their child’s team and at least one parent from each team will be designated as the "coach"!

Fundamentals & Skill Development: 

Players will work on mastering the fundamentals of the sport and learning more advanced skills. An instructor will lead the drills and introduce the new skills as the players advance. The first half hour will be spent learning and practicing skills and the last half hour will be a game. As the season progresses, games may be extended and practice time reduced to keep everyone engaged. Parents who volunteer to coach will help the children work on the skills, ensure even rotation of players during the games and guide the players during the games. For these leagues schedules and team assignments are mailed after Thanksgiving and will also be posted online.

Teams are formed after player evaluations which will be held on Saturday, December 5. Buddy and carpool requests are not allowed in these levels.

Players will be contacted by their coaches in the days after the draft and will receive a schedule on December 12. Once teams are formed, players will have a one hour timeslot for a game and warmup on Saturdays and a one hour practice during the week. Parents are encouraged to coach their child’s team and at least one parent from each team will be designated as the "coach"!
