Community begins with “I” and ends with “US”
Basketball Basics is a not-for-profit organization whose focus is a skills fundamental development program for children ages 4-15. The game of basketball is used as a vehicle to instil life characteristics, a sense of community and individual self-worth. Each participant is allowed to celebrate their own success as they Play, Learn and Grow through our program developing Skills, Character and Foundation for both Basketball and Life.
Basketball Basics is able to accommodate children of different age groups and skill levels by simplifying the game to its core elements. Regardless of experience or age each participant is challenged to hone their individual skills. Teaching methods include a mixture of individual and group instruction to improve form and method. The learned skills are then applied in a progressive game that emphasizes FUN and TEAMWORK.
