The clinic is a fun and exciting time in which young boys and girls will learn the basic skills of the game of basketball. Children are placed on teams and the teams rotate to 5 different stations.These stations include: dribbling, passing, shooting, defense/footwork, devotional. The devotional station is led by our devotional coordinator who will share biblical principles and encourages the players to live a life with Christ. During the last two weeks of the clinic, participants play scrimmages, applying the skills they have learned. A size 27.5 basketball is used in this clinic.
