    Based on Current School Year 2021-2022

    New Format for Kindergarten
    This is a ONE DAY ONLY program with no weekday practices. Our innovative program structure allows for coaching consistency along with creating a positive and energetic environment for young players to learn the fundamentals of basketball. Coach Kai Willis will be here each week to lead the clinics. Each session will consist of motor skill development through basketball related drills followed by fun games and activities for the children to enjoy. Each week will conclude with a game allowing players to learn from the game itself. Teams will be formed after the first two clinics. The one hour will consist of 30 minutes of skill development and a  30 minute game.

    Our goal is to have a competitive balance among teams, therefore there are no same team requests. Siblings are the only guarantee to be placed on the same team unless otherwise noted. Also, each team is allowed two official coaches, one head coach and one assistant coach, who are guaranteed to have their kids on their team.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you withdraw for any reason before November 1, your fee (less $20) will be refunded. Once practices begin you will not be eligible to receive a refund. All refunds are at the discretion of the Sports Center Director.

    Evaluation Policy
