Early Start Basketball

basketball kid
Lil' Shooters Basketball teaches children (ages 3-6) the basic motor skills necessary to play organized basketball, while they work one-on-one and spend quality time with their parents. The program focuses on teaching children and their parents dribbling/ball handling, shooting, passing/catching, and running/agility without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt.

Lil' Sports sessions are held one time per week for 6 weeks, and each week the exercises become increasingly difficult as the class progresses and the children show improvement. This is a child/parent class with classes held weekly in the evening for 45 minutes.
A parent or guardian is required to attend the class with their child or children.
