Description:

This program introduces the skills and rules needed to play basketball. Led by the Grimes Parks and Recreation Staff, the participants move from station to station with their parent/guardian/older sibling working on passing, dribbling, shooting, running, and playing defense. The Grimes Rec Clinic Leader warms the kids up and cools the kids down with fun lead-up games and drills. Each child must have a “coaching” parent present that is willing to go to each station throughout the clinic. Kids progress at their own pace. Equipment used is a mini rubber basketball for shooting, lowered extension hoop to 6ft, and kids should wear their jerseys each time.
