"Learn the Game" is designed for girls between the ages of 8 - 10 who want to learn more about playing the game of basketball while developing their basketball skills and confidence.
10 skills, 10 affirmations, 10 mini competitions
Each week, the girls will learn one basketball skill, one positive statement about themselves and apply it to a structured competitive setting. The goal is to engage girls in learning more about how the game of basketball is played in order to better prepare them for our next level of basketball programming for 11-18 year olds called "Get in the Game".
