This is an instructional program to introduce GIRLS and BOYS (1st grade and kindergarten) to the basics of basketball before they play on the Kilgour Basketball teams (2nd-6th grades). The main emphasis is to have FUN and develop an appreciation for the sport! The goal of the program is to offer the kids an introduction to basketball, while learning the basic rules and how to play the game. The program will include drills for dribbling, passing and shooting with scrimmages against each other. There will not be games against other schools. Your child must wear gym shoes and bring a properly inflated size 28.5” basketball (indoor ball is preferable but not required). The Registration fee is $15, which includes a program t-shirt.
The program will consist of a two (1) hour session on Friday evenings in the Kilgour Gym from 5:00-7:00pm. The first hour will be for the girls and second hour for the boys. There will be no other weekday practices or weekend games. The season starts December 2nd and will run through Feb 24th. The sessions will not be held on days where kids do not have classes. We have a maximum number of kids that we can effectively coach. Based on registration numbers, we may have to customize a schedule that alternates Fridays to keep the number of kids manageable. We will be in contact following registrations to communicate scheduling.
Parent support is required for the success of the program. We need volunteer coaches. Advanced preparation is not required as we already have a successful format – you only need to show up and help for one hour. Coaching & basketball experience are also not required but helpful.
Need help with the fees? Confidential need-based sports scholarships are available for families in need. All interested children are encouraged to play. All inquires are held in confidence.
Should you have any questions, please send email to Andrew Derksen @ email@example.com.
