This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

No class 2/22 due to inclement weather. Start date: 03/01, End date: 04/19.

The instructional basketball program is a fun introduction to the fundamentals of basketball. We will focus on team work and sports work ethic (“practice today/better tomorrow”) as it is about teaching real basketball skills and general rules.

The primary goals are to leave the children with the fundamental basketball skills (dribbling, passing, shooting and court awareness), a basic understanding of the rules and how to work as a team. 

Requirements: A filled water bottle (and back up water), comfortable clothing, sneakers and a mask.

Recommendations: We recommend that you bring your own youth basketball with your name on it. Youth basketballs are size 5, the circumference measuring 27.5”-27.75” and these can be purchased at Walmart, Dicks Sporting Goods, Amazon, etc.

Coach: Jason Maxwell 
Assistant Coaches: Brian Hembrook and Jeff Terrillion
