Hi-Five Hoops Clinic — AGES: 6-10 Years Old— Program Goals & Philosophy The main goal of the Hi-Five Hoops program is to provide an opportunity for each athlete to improve his/her basketball skills while having FUN! Our philosophy of positive reinforcement in teaching basketball enables each athlete to enjoy the game while learning necessary skills and techniques. The program is designed so that each week new skills are taught and previous skills are reinforced. Our goal is to teach the importance of responsibility, sportsmanship and teamwork. The Hi-Five Hoops program uses age-appropriate sized basketballs and basket hoop heights. This promotes the use of proper mechanics when handling and shooting the basketball. Clinic & Draft Each age group will participate in a clinic featuring a series of drills and scrimmages designed to prepare everyone for the upcoming season. At the conclusion of the clinic, using a traditional draft format, our coaching staff will create the teams as evenly balanced as possible. The draft selection is based on what we see in the clinics and already know of many of the children. Regular Season During the regular season our coaches and referees will help the kids learn the art of good old-fashioned fundamental basketball! We’ll keep the score and statistics for each game and adjust the standings each week. Sportsmanship, teamwork, hustle, proper spacing, ball movement, and child-to-child defense will be stressed. We’ll teach the kids to win and lose with good sportsmanship and move on to the next game! Playoffs & Championships Based on the results of the regular season, we’ll create a post-season bracket – MARCH MADNESS – and give each team from each division a chance to win the coveted Hi-Five Hoops League Championships!! COMING SOON!
