Basketball

 

 

BASKETBALL, is a very competitive sport that will teach your child teamwork.  It is primarily an indoor, organized sport that is played on a court.  Points are scored for passing the ball through the basket.  The team that has scored the most points at the end of the game wins.

This sport is played professionally as well as the Olympics.  In addition, basketball is available in most middle school, high school and college sports programs.

Basketball is very fast-paced and requires a great deal of skill and understanding.  The players must be able to react to their teammates, think quickly and orchestrate a play to completion.

Leagues for children consists of INTRAMURAL / RECREATIONAL OR TRAVEL

  INTRAMURAL / RECREATIONAL BASKETBALL focuses more on fun than competition.  Your child will not have to try out for this league.  All children are accepted and everyone will get play time.  Drills are performed to practice skills and positioning.

TRAVEL LEAGUE  requires that the children have to tryout for a position on the team.  Skill level is very high in these leagues and competition is tough.  In this league your child's basketball skills will improve substantially simply because of the competition, dedication, and practice.
