The Southern Utah Sports Academy has designed a special coed basketball league for players in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. Players will be placed in divisions based on physical ability and skills. There will be a Kindergarten and 1st grade division and a 1st and 2nd grade division.
Games will be played on 8’ baskets and will feature 4 versus 4 play, which will help players touch the ball more often, and give more space for players to experience ball handling and passing. The referee in the game will also serve as an active coach on the floor with a focus on passing the ball and learning to use a pivot foot and trying not to travel.
During the weekly practices players will learn and work on the skills of dribbling with both hands, stopping and chinning the basketball, how to pivot and pass. They will also learn to use the correct footwork while attempting layups. Basic shooting fundamentals will be taught, which will include using the backboard to make shots.
Registration is now open for classes and the specially designed league play. Classes are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays throughout the Sports Academy Winter Semester. This league is only $180 for FOUR months of fundamental instruction and games, which is only $45 a month!
