SUMMER SESSION

Lil’ Ballers is a child development program that focuses on teaching the fundamentals of basketball to inexperienced players ages 5-12 years old. The program’s ten-week curriculum is designed to teach your child the necessary skills, dedication, teamwork, and passion required to become a Lil’ Baller on and off the court. Our coaches are trained to instill confidence in the players by creating a fun and challenging atmosphere that will prepare them for league play. The program is divided into three different age groups, the Dribblers (5-6 years old), the Dunkers (7-8 years old), and the Three-Pointers (9-12 years old). Each age group has their own unique curriculum that builds upon itself from week to week to achieve their true Lil’ Baller potential.
