Start Smart Basketball (Ages 3 - 5 years)
This program teaches kids basic motor skills necessary to play organized basketball while they work one on one and spend quality time with their parents. The focus is on teaching children and their parents skills in dribbling/ball handling, passing/catching, shooting and running/agility without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt. Held once a week for six weeks, the exercises become increasingly more difficult as the class progresses and the children show improvement. All children get to keep their participant kit which includes a soft-bounce basketball and mini basketball, four cones, a jersey and participant’s manual.
