1st and 2nd Grade: Skill stations throughout the day’s events, daily practices with designated teams, and game play for the last 45 minutes-1 hour. The focus at this level is teaching proper form with shooting, defending the ball, rebounding, and passing. *WE NEED PARENTS TO RUN THIS PROGRAM (preferably 6-8 adults.)
3rd and 4th Grade: Skill stations, challenging competitions, team practices, and team games. We want this level to focus on being great teammates, executing simple basketball plays (V-cuts and ball screens) and an overall better understanding of the sport for the kids.
5th and 6th Grade: More competitive, preparing for school basketball, skill stations, team practice and team games. We want to see the players working well on the court together and seeing their skill level improve to the point where they are comfortable and confident on the court.
