Basketball players can excel on the court and then fail to excel in life if they never realize their personal potential and leadership role as identified by who they are in Christ. Your player will be encouraged to focus on the spiritual aspect of their lives as well as the physical aspect of the sport, and the relational aspect of the sport.
Spiritual – Putting God First
Participants will be encouraged with a daily Bible study and will focus on being a leader on their team, at home, and at school. Each child will identify a “game plan” he or she desires to follow through with to become the leader God has called your child to be both now and in the future.
Physical – Basketball Skill
Participants will participate in daily group skills that focus on improving their individual play. Skills focus includes shooting form, shooting, agility, passing, and movement around the court.
Being Part of a Team
Participants will focus a portion of their time on becoming part of a team. Skill focus includes knowledge of key basketball positions and instruction on what players in those positions are there to accomplish. Participants will also learn how a team uses all of the players strengths and weaknesses for the good of the team.
