We will have basketball during the months of January and February and will end with a tournament between several elementary schools.  We will have 8 practices, so probably we will practice once a week.

 

Description of the activity:

 The purpose of this activity is to teach responsibility, dedication, and hard work while focusing on training and improving basketball skills. 

 

Skills taught : Ball handling

                         Passing

                         Moving the ball up and down the court

                         Defensive skills 

                         Offensive strategies

                         Shooting techniques

 

While teaching these skills coaches keep data on the progress of each player to determine which of the five positions would be best suitable for each player, along with what team to place each player.
