General Information

The K-1 Basketball Clinic is a fun and exciting time in which boys and girls age 5 or in Kindergarten and First Grade will learn the basic skills of the game of basketball. The K-1 Clinic is held on Saturday afternoons.  Children are placed on teams and the teams rotate to 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.

 

Dates/Times:  Jan 15 – March 5, 2022; Saturdays at 1:30pm or 2:30pm for 8 weeks.

 

Fee:   $35.00 Registration Fee  This year we are going to provide T-shirts included in the registration fee.
Refund policy: $5.00 fee retained if refund requested. No refund will be given to any player who withdraws after the second week of clinic. An exception may be granted at the discretion of the staff due to medical reasons only. Further, no refund will be given to any player removed from the league during the course of the season for disciplinary reasons.
