Spring and Summer 2016 Class Schedule


LIL’ DRIBBLERS

Spring and Summer

Children are introduced to the game of basketball in a safe, fun and exciting environment. Our curriculum uses age appropriate activities and games specifically designed to increase balance, body awareness, motor skills and hand eye coordination. These factors are important in the overall development of children. The Lil’ Dribblers program includes exclusively designed equipment tailored to enhance the basketball experience for each participant. The program challenges children to develop new cognitive, physical and social skills. In addition each child will experience social interaction with both children and adults in a fun environment. As children progress through the program, they acquire listening skills and have a fun introduction to following directions. These skills will benefit your child on the court, in the classroom but most importantly throughout their life! Boys and Girls (Ages 2-6). Register Online
