Pre-School and Pre K/Kindergarten Classes
The Pre-School classes are a fun and engaging introduction to the game of basketball. Each week of instruction introduces your child to beginner basketball fundamentals including: dribbling, passing shooting and defense. Basketball drills are introduced in a play-based format and are designed to improve coordination and motor skills. Team concepts such as good sportsmanship are also introduced each week to the children. Overall, there is an emphasis on having fun in a positive environment while learning the fundamentals of the game!
The Pre K/Kindergarten Class is a next step for those 4 or 5 year olds (including Kindergartners) who have taken the Hoop Stars Pre School class before or are a Hoop Stars first timer! We use both slightly larger basketballs and a higher hoop than the pre school class while continuing work on the fundamentals of basketball. Shorter mini games against each other will be introduced, with an emphasis on team work and sportsmanship!
