SUPERTOTS (Ages 3-4), PEE WEE (5-6), and BASICS (7-10)
First Shot programs are not about winning. When the kids ask who won, our answer is, “if you had fun, you won!” Each class has 4 or 5 experienced teachers (not volunteers). They teach your child the basic skills, play with him/her, provide encouragement and help set individual goals.We show them how to catch the ball properly; dribble and shoot using “youth size” balls and baskets lower than regulation. We stress good sportsmanship in all of our classes. No one sits out. Everyone plays all the time!
Our message to the children is always filled with support and an expectation that he/she will accomplish the task. With many students, we find that our confidence in them will overcome their lack of confidence in themselves.
OLYMPIXTM (Ages 9-13), Advanced OLYMPIXTM (Ages 11-14)
Although these are competitive program, we don’t permit any cut-throat rivalry. All of our programs enforce the value of sportsmanship, individual excellence and teamwork. The Olympix and Advanced Olympix are similar programs. The children that qualify for the Advanced Olympix are generally a little older and have more skills and experience.
Powerball Advanced Training (Ages 12-15)
This is a unique program developed for players age 12-15, whose skill and expertise is beyond those in our regular Olympix, and who want to play on a team in the future. This class is for the serious player who wants to excel in the game. We only take a select number of students in this class.
The Power Ball Advanced program provides intense training that focuses on two important criteria: First, is the fine points of the full court game including setting picks, pick and roll, how to get free, set plays, zone defense and man to man defense, how to run a two on one fast break, boxing out and rebounding. The second equally important aspect of the program is shooting. We work closely with the students to refine their shooting technique.
This program will make the student a better full court player.
