Boys Tiny Tots Basketball Clinic (for boys ages 5-7)
This is a 4-week clinic on Saturdays that will introduce players to the fundamentals of basketball from volunteer clinicians. These clinicians will teach skills like proper techniques of dribbling, passing and shooting. More emphasis will be put on doing drills to improve ball handling ability than on playing games. The idea is to make it fun for these young players while they learn some basic basketball fundamental skills.
Clinic will take place on Saturday mornings from January 7 through January 28 and will take place in the gyms at the YMCA. There will be 2 sessions to choose from, 8:30-9:15 or 9:30-10:15. To keep each session uniform, players must attend the time slots they are signed up for.
Registration is now open and continues until January 5 or session is full.

Teams are put together by grade, school designation and prior participation. This YMCA basketball program requires that each
