Youth Basketball will run for 7 weeks with an emphasis on fundamentals through drills, competitions, scrimmages and games! As well as fair play, sportsmanship & FUN! It is designed to improve play through inclusive team concept drills and practices led by volunteer coaches. We have divisions for 3-year-olds through 5th grade. Pre-K and K division games are play on Friday nights and 1st - 5th grade play on Saturday mornings.
