A Money Hoop Starz Winter In-house Basketball League
This is a co-ed in-house league for children ages 3 through grade 2. The league runs December through March. This league will feature top level instruction working on ball handling, shooting, offensive moves, defense and all aspects of the game. While your child will practice ball-handling, dribbling, and shooting, they will also learn about good sportsmanship, teamwork, and the value of fair play. Each week following the instruction the children in the 4’s/Kind and 1st/2nd grade leagues will be broken up into teams and will have a REAL GAME while children in the 3-year old league will participate in contests and game like situations.
