Basketball playerYouth Basketball is one of the most popular sports around right now. Our basketball program is designed to instruct youth in the fundamentals of the sport, coupled with educational and life skills training.

During the sessions, boys and girls will learn offensive skills such as shooting and passing, and defensive skills such as proper stance and rebounding. Players will then be divided into teams and will be able to implement individual skills in full court game settings.

As always, this is a completely free program, with all equipment provided.

Watervliet Dome

We'll start each day with a brief discussion about expectations, followed by warm up, stretching and some cardio. The kids will then be divided according to age and skill set to work on drills including dribbling, passing, shooting and various defense and offense techniques. Near the end of each day we'll form teams for scrimmage games, followed by time for a group discussion on what they learned and how to put it to use next time they are on the court. Lunch will not be included, but there will be water breaks and kids are welcome to bring their own snacks!
