COACHING CLINICS NOT ‘TIL 11/2021

PRE-SEASON COACH AND PLAYER CLINICS

Our Next “Get Ready “Coach/Player Clinics are normally-scheduled in November or December, just before Basketball Season. We are not able to put on any Player Clinics due to COVID-19. The one Coach Clinic we will put on will be for Kingdom Basketball Coaches.

Coaches’ clinics are for parent/volunteer coaches who want to receive strategies to properly and effectively coach their youth basketball teams.  Volunteer Coaches come and receive instruction how to successfully-approach their basketball season, whether they have coached before or not. Coaches receive a handout, complete with a “tool box” of drills and appropriate goals and methods to coach their respective age groups, from Kinder-9th Grade kids.  Coach Heidi (35 years experience) does all instruction live (in-person); and she gives helpful websites where coaches can harvest plays, drills, defensive sets and other extremely useful information.

Player Clinics are for beginner or intermediate skill-level players to “Get Ready” for the season.  Players work on correct forms of shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, defense and “live game situations.” This is a great way to transition from fall sports into basketball season! **Unfortunately, no Player “Get Ready” Clinics will be put on this December due to COVID-19.
