Start Smart Basketball teaches children (ages 3-5) he basic motor skills necessary to play organized basketball while spending quality time with their parents. The program focuses on teaching children and parents the skills of dribbling, ball handling, passing, catching, shooting, running and 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 children show improvement. An adult must accompany each child every week and assist them in stations.
