Girls and boys in kindergarten through 2nd grade play in groups by grade. 1st and 2nd grades play twice a week and kindergarten plays once a week on Sundays in the WES gym. Fun, sportsmanship, fundamental movement, and gross motor skills are emphasized.
- Sessions run from early December through February.
- There are no evaluations or formal games for this division.
- Players will develop their basketball skills using age-appropriate basketballs with hoops set at heights recommended by USA Basketball.
December 5-February 17
Sunday: Kindergarten at 12pm @ WES, 1st grade at 1pm @ WES, and 2nd grade at 2pm @ WES
Monday: 1st grade at 5:30pm
Thursday: 2nd grade at 5:30pm
There will be no basketball from December 23 through January 2. The program will resume on Monday, January 3.
Assistant coaches are needed for all grades at this level. No coaching or basketball experience required. The more volunteers we have, the more the players move with the basketball and have the greatest opportunity to work on their individual ball-handling. Kids at this age love to see their parents on the court with them!
