Skill Builders Basketball

November 15, 2021 - February 6, 2022

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

Skill Builders is The J’s unique approach to youth basketball featuring quality, consistent coaching by knowledgeable coaches; and practices that are run like skill clinics. While individual skill development is stressed in all divisions; there is a greater emphasis on team and game skills in the 2
nd grade boys, 3rd/4th grade girls and 4th/5th grade boys divisions than in the younger age groups.  While participants are encouraged to come to as many practices as possible to gain the maximum skill development, attendance at all practices is not required.

Team Formation – Teams in the Kindergarten through 3rd grade divisions will be limited to 8 kids per team. Teams in the 3rd grade boys, 3rd/4th girls, and 4th/5th grade divisions will be limited to 10 kids per team.  While we will accept teammate requests, please note that if there is a group of players that want to play together that exceeds the player per team limit of a division, we will split the players up into two teams and then fill out the team with other players.

In addition to the participants learning and improving basketball skills, the Skill Builders program also focuses on character development. Each week there is a “Word (or phrase) of the Week” that pertains to both basketball and life in general.  For example – Effort and Attitude:  we believe that the effort a child gives and the attitude they have, go hand in hand with the type of experience they will have.  Understanding the importance effort and a good attitude play in success will serve a child well in all aspects of life.
