This 12 week program in the fall of 2016 will be managed by NBA Canada. Coaches are trained by NBA staff and all gear provided for the class comes directly from the NBA. Its a very exciting opportunity for the Balloholic program to bring this to our kids. This class is for 5-7 year old boys and girls has limited space and will run only once this season.
These classes will focus on movement training and introducing young players to the fundamentals of the game. There will be lots of positive reinforcement and maintaining of a good level of fun for the kids at every practice.
We strive to maintain a high level of instruction and combine the philosophy of Victory Sports Camps in all classes. Some of the principles we deploy are a ball for every child and balls in motion for as much of practice as possible.
You will need to bring your own basketball to classes. Basketballs may be purchased online when you register also.
The program will run approximately 9 weeks. The focus is movement training, movement with a basketball, introduction to skills , exercise and lots of fun.

Practice once and play once per week in the Balloholic Youth League on Friday. This program has proven to be very successful in seeing all the boys progress in their skill level , team play and enjoyment of the game. Its an inclusive approach to teaching the game and we have a very high retention rate from start to finish every session.
League schedule will be posted on the website after teams are drafted. Players will work primarily on individual fundamental skills in the Fall session.

This progression is very successful and obvious to all observers as the program reaches its conclusion in the spring.
