First Shot Basketball School

We are the leading basketball program located in Queens, New York, with individual classes for boys and girls ages 3-15; all in a safe indoor environment.

First Shot offers non-competitive basketball lessons for beginners and competitive advanced classes for more experienced children. Our classes are taught by caring basketball teachers (not volunteers) who know how to instruct and help children build confidence while they learn in a healthy, camp-like atmosphere. Everything we do is designed to be child sensitive. Not every child is an athlete, but every child wants to look good in front of his/her friends, and be recognized for their effort. We give them the skills and the confidence to feel good about themselves and their performance.

Come to our classes and see why our students keep coming back! Ask about our Trial Lesson.

We look forward to returning to our classes when we get approval from the Dept. of Education that it is safe for the children and our staff. To ensure maximum safety when we do come back, we will be following the DOE protocols as well as implementing our own safety guidelines.
