"NEW" INSTRUCTIONAL/BEGINNER BASKETBALL
PREK-2ND GRADE ONLY
i9 Sports Chandler/Gilbert/Queen Creek is preparing to launch an incredibly fun and organized INSTRUCTIONAL BEGINNER Basketball Program for boys/girls Grades PreK(4yr.old)-2nd.
This program is perfect for a child who has not played basketball (or any sport); the player should be a BEGINNER who would benefit from playing on smaller teams with other beginners at a slower pace. Focus will be on the development of basic skills to help young BEGINNERS in PreK-2nd grade learn how to play and gain confidence to actively play in the games.
TEAM PRACTICES: Each Team will be assigned a practice Day/Time/Location which will remain the same during the season. Practices are 1 hour at half court per week. Practices are held Monday thru Friday evenings between 5:00pm-9:00pm. Practice locations are at local Chandler and Gilbert Schools and Gyms. This will vary each season as it depends on which schools and gyms are available.
GAME FORMAT: 3 on 3 or 4 on 4. EVERYONE PLAYS EQUAL TIME! (6 to 8 players per team)
Current Grade Level for the 2018/2019 School Year
PeeWee - PreK(4yr.old) - Kindergarten: will play on 7 foot baskets
Junior - Grades 1 - 2: will play on 8 foot baskets
* These divisions may adjust depending on enrollment numbers
You can request a friend, sibling or coach on your registration and we will make our very best effort to accommodate your request as long as they are in the same division. Although they can not always be guaranteed (ie: rosters already set or coaches over requested).
GAME LOCATIONS: Games are played at local Chandler and Gilbert Schools and Gyms. This will vary each season as it depends on which schools and gyms are available.
THIS IS AN INSTRUCTIONAL/DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM FOR BEGINNERS IN PREK-2ND GRADE ONLY
