Follow the Bouncing Ball

Balls in most sports bounce, but basketball is one of the few where you bounce it deliberately. In fact, it’s hard for kids to quietly hold their basketballs during instruction—balls want to be bounced!

Our basketball unit covers the skills of dribbling, passing and shooting. We practice things individually with no opposition, move to one-on-one or pairs to add pressure, then culminate with a full game. We may have some future NBA stars in the making.
