General Information

We are sorry to say due to the Coronavirus concerns, we will not be having this program in 2021.  Thank you and God bless you and your family.

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. 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:  TBA  Normally begins in January and is held every Saturday afternoon for 1 hour, 8 weeks.
