Skills and Drills! This program is all about fun! Come learn the basic motor skills necessary to play organized basketball. Focus will be on teaching children skills in dribbling/ball handling, passing/catching, shooting and running/agility without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt. Each week the exercises become increasingly more difficult as the class progresses and the children show improvement.
Volunteer assistants are welcome.
Deadline: 5 days prior to the start of the program
A $10.00 late fee applies to all registrations after the deadline.
