Jr. Skills (Grades 1-3)
Jr. Skills Academy helps participants develop the foundational skills of both basketball and physical literacy in a fun and inclusive environment. Sessions will take participants through a series of games-based activities that focus on basketball fundamentals (dribbling, passing and shooting) and movement skills (running, jumping and throwing). Throughout the program, participants will learn about core life-skills like positivity, sportsmanship, teamwork and respect. Age appropriate balls and hoops are used to maximize participant success.
Skills Academy (Grades 4-7)
The Skills Academy will help participants improve their individual basketball skills while learning team concepts in a fun and challenging environment. Each session will feature a balance of focused sill development (shooting, passing, attacking the hoop, defensive techniques) and game-play (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5). Essential skills like sportsmanship, respect and teamwork will be emphasized and utilized throughout all sessions. Each participant receives a North Shore Basketball Academy Shirt.
