This fun and popular, skill-intensive program is designed for beginning to intermediate players ages 6 – 12 looking to take the next step in basketball. Participants will spend the first half of class learning the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defense, in addition to the rules, strategies, and play-calls of the game. Our age-appropriate drills and games teach young athletes skill development in addition to vital life lessons including leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship. In the second half of class we will put skills learned along with sportsmanship and teamwork when we break into teams giving participants a chance to show off the skills of the day in some full court games! Skyhawks Basketball meets on Wednesdays, September 13 – November 1 (class will not meet 10/4 and 10/11), 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. The fee is $90 (Oakley residents) and $100 (non-residents) and pre-registration is required.
