This fall we are doing a unit on basketball. Dribbling, passing shooting and defense all involve many of the basic skills we practice. Plus, bouncing a ball is fun! We have various sizes of basketballs and heights of hoops to accommodate players of all ages and sizes.
After practicing our skills with games like keep-away and fun games like HORSE before we get into the rules and actual games. We modify the rules a bit (no stealing, minimal contact, no blocking shots) so everyone gets the chance to practice the skills we are learning.
