This basketball class provides the basic skills of playing basketball for kids at entry level or intermediate level. The class is designed to emphasize fundamental skills such as ball handling, passing, dribbling, footwork, shooting, and rebounding. We also stress teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship, and enjoyment of a basketball game. After this class, students should be able to understand all the basics of basketball.
The intermediate class is determined by the coatch during the classs session. The two classes( beginner and internediate) will share the same warm-up session and the fundamental learning (about 15 min). Then we will split into two classes - one coach one class.
