Beginner Basketball is designed for boys and girls in grades 3 and 4. Practices and games are used as opportunities to learn basic rules of basketball and develop skills in a non competitive encouraging environment. Coaches and officials will use teachable moments to help players learn rules and develop good sportsmanship practices while gaining skills and making new friends. Players are randomly selected to teams based on their practice availability. Requests for specific teammates will not be honored. Scores are not kept in Beginner games. The season ends with a Beginner Basketball Extravaganza sometime in February.
