We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, February 24, 2017.
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. Register to make lifelong friends, meet coaches you will never forget and to have fun with teammates who will teach you there is more to sports than wins and losses.
Practice days will be set by the coach. Games will be held at various parks on Friday evenings at 6pm or 7pm January 13th through February 17th. Volunteer coaches are needed! Please contact Sara if you are interested in helping out with this program. In early January look out for the game schedule to be released at www.teamsideline.com/minneapolisparks
