Pre-K/TK Participants:

Clinics will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of basketball, such as shooting, dribbling, and passing. We believe basketball offers children a tremendous opportunity to develop and improve all areas of a child’s motor movements.

Warm-Up: (10 minutes): Warm-ups will include plyometric and strength conditioning exercises, such as resistance running, ladder drill, and dot drill. These exercises are designed to increase overall speed, agility, and coordination.

Instructional Portion: (30 minutes)

Basic Skill Development: (15 minutes) Skill development could include dribbling, passing, or shooting practice.

Introduction of a New Skill or Concept: (15 minutes) Possible skills introduced could be dribbling with an arm block, a defensive stance, new offensive moves, and lay-ups.

Structured Scrimmage: (20 minutes)

Children will split into teams and participate in a controlled scrimmage designed to help your child implement the skills they are working on in a real game situation.

K-5th Participants:

The focus of these clinics will be to further basketball fundamentals ranging from, but not limited to, footwork, dribbling, passing, and shooting form. Starting from the ground up, these training sessions will begin with developing sound basketball footwork, on both the offensive and defensive end. From here, we plan on working to perfect dribbling, passing and shooting form.

Once a solid foundation of fundamentals has been built, we will begin to introduce new skills through specific drills and competitions that will challenge your child’s current abilities. Lastly, we would like to bring everything together and help our players develop an understanding of how to utilize these new skills whether playing with their friends, or on their basketball team.
