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:  January 13, 2024 – March 2, 2024  Saturdays at 1:30pm or 2:30pm
