Our Ongoing Goal: To use basketball to build self-esteem and encourage teamwork in every class. We do this by showing children how capable they are, and proving they can succeed no matter how difficult the task may seem. First Shot Basketball was created to provide the comprehensive instruction and positive encouragement that kids need. Our lessons and teaching methods focus on a child's strong points, recognizing the smallest achievements.
Why We’re DifferentFirst Shot classes are based on age-specific, specially developed lessons that introduce beginner and advanced instruction and team concepts. Our teaching methods are geared to make each player feel like a winner -- inside where it really counts.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR,
First Shot was founded in 1997, by Joel Mansbach, who was committed to creating a one-of-a-kind program that would simply be the best. Joel’s natural affinity for working with children and a clear understanding of how to motivate and instill confidence is augmented by 14 years experience at First Shot and 3 years as a little league basketball coach.
“I believe while children are learning to play basketball, they are also gaining confidence in all their capabilities. Their First Shot training will prepare them with a keen knowledge of the game and an understanding of their role on a team. But, more importantly, a child will learn that with good preparation and diligent practice, they will be able to reach all of their personal goals in and beyond the schoolyard.” Joel Mansbach
