Increase your child's confidence, self-esteem and listening skills through participating in team sports. Players will increase social skills, develop healthy active habits, and learn the value of teamwork and sportsmanship, all in a fun and safe environment. Players will learn and practice various techniques and skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting and rebounding. The league is designed to develop basketball skills while learning teamwork, strategy, and sportsmanship. Each game will start with warm-ups and time to practice skills and drills. Games will be two 15-minute running time halves and a 3-minute halftime break, no score will be kept. Focus is on teaching basic skills of the game and learning how games are structured.
