 Program Descriptions

 

 

 

  • In-town Junior YBA
  • 1st and 2nd Grade Program: This is a clinic based program that we run on Saturday Mornings at Fitzgerald Elementary School. Depending on the amount of kids that sign up they are usually placed by grade and we may have one mixed group of 1st and 2nd grades. We generally have three scheduled times that we will slot your child in one of those groups. The program will most likely begin on December 1st. Our goal is to give your child 10 sessions. These sessions are very much an introduction to the game of basketball with a focus on teaching the fundamentals of the game. It is for all abilities. Our instructors keep it fun with many drills as well as each session concluding with a short scrimmage to start to introduce them to games. As we get closer to December 1st you will hear from the league on team assignment and the time of the session for your child. I encourage you to register early. The cost is $110 for the upcoming season.
  • 3rd and 4th Grade Program: Your child will be placed on an assigned team for the season. We will have a rotating schedule that will be held on Saturday afternoons at Fitzgerald Elementary School. During these sessions we will start with a 30 minute theme of the week session where we will go over 2-3 drills to have your kids work on certain fundamental skills of the game of basketball. We will then have a game against another team that will be approximately 30 minutes long. We will keep score and all kids get rotated in every 4-5 minutes so the playing time for everyone is fairly equal. Last year we had a total of 6 teams in this league and most likely will be the same for the upcoming season. This program will begin on December 1st as well. We typically give the kids 10 games for the season and they will get a 11th session most likely a week night during the week prior to school vacation in February where will have our end of the year basketball jamboree!! I encourage you to register early. The cost is $110 for the upcoming season.
