Catered for boys and girls ages 5-17, our Instructional Series is a 6-week tutorial designed to teach sports to individual athletes or small groups. Trained Staff Members (“Coaches”) will implement and administrate suitable basketball training programs.For beginners, Coaches will explain the rules and regulations of basketball to participants (“students”) and assist them in developing the skills necessary to play the sport effectively. For the more advanced student, our Coaches will also work closely with the experienced student to help sharpen and improve their existing skills.

Upon completion of the 6-week Instructional Series, Students will then graduate into Intramural League play.
