Early Youth Basketball

Our experienced coaches use fun to help create a love for the game of basketball and for living an active lifestyle. These 55-minute classes are designed to be engaging for kids ages 2-8 years old, while focusing on the fundamentals of basketball. We want each of our Shooting Stars to leave the program with a basic set of skills and a desire to continue playing the game of basketball.
