We introduce basic elements of basketball in creative interactive ways to develop the children’s interest in the sport. We will cover footwork, passing, dribbling and shooting. We will also work on listening skills to provide a good foundation to build on.
Here the children will have a grasp of the fundamental skills. The children will be introduced to basic team work principles of passing and moving without the ball through creative, challenging games.
At this level the children will be able to demonstrate good footwork principals, good passing and dribbling skills. More emphasis will be placed on advanced techniques and modified rules emphasizing team work.
We have established good fundamentals in all aspects of the game. Now through modified rules games and more structured games the players will be able to compete in a full game more effectively. The players will now have a good base to pursue basketball at a higher level.
Here we continue to instil solid fundamental techniques from footwork, special awareness, ball handling and passing. We firmly believe that fundamental skill development should be constantly reinforced in a structured and interesting, fun environment. We will also teach using adapted game situations to enable a better understanding of competitive basketball.
