The K-2 Program is a training program, building the basics of basketball so your kids have the skills they need when they join a team in 3rd grade. At each practice/clinic we will run drills, work on ball handling, and learn the basics. As our practices continue, we will run some scrimmages and learn some of the skills for the game. Moreso for our 2nd graders than our K-1 students.
A few things to note:
This is NOT a drop-off program, and we do ask that an adult stay on site during our clinics.
Please check the schedule carefully, practices can be at Hidden Valley Elementary Gym or at the High School in the new gym there.
You do not need to have special shoes, however, because the outside is typically wet this time of year we do ask that your child have a clean, dry pair of shoes to wear on the court. This means they should wear their boots to and from the car. A wet court is a dangerous court.
You are not required to have a basketball, but if you would like to have your own please make sure it is clearly marked with your childs name. Be aware that the ball may end up shared during various drills, as a lot of them are partner or team style activities. At this age, we are using a 27.5" ball.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the season. I do not need to know if your child will miss a practice, but please try to be at as many as you can!
