First day report time will be 9:00am on Saturday, December 10th at Highland Creek Elementary School. Plan on your son being in the gym for around 2 hours the first Saturday! On this day we'll draft teams/honor teammate requests, hand out uniform tops and schedules, assign coaches, and begin teaching our motion offense. Your son will always report at 9:00am.

What to expect in a Boys Lil Dribbler League:
We have three goals for your son:

1) learn movement
2) learn skills
3) learn how to play the game

Each session will focus on developing these three areas.

If boys learn movement at this age, they will become better athletes when they mature. We want these boys to learn such critical movements such as, pivoting, skipping, running, shuffling laterally, hopping, landing, running backwards and so on.

Learning basketball skills is accomplished by giving them a steady diet each day of fast paced drills/teaching such areas as: triple threat, passing and catching, pivoting, jump stop, layups/shooting, and defense.

Learning how to play the game will follow the drills/teaching. We issue them uniform tops for them to keep. The league games allow the boys a chance to start putting the teaching together in a game situation. We wisely do not turn the score clock on. Focus is on developing skills - less on who is winning the game.

Frequently asked questions:

What height are the rims? We lower the rims to 8 feet

What size basketball is used? We use a small youth 27" basketball. Perfect for this age

What if we my boy has never played before - any worries?
No worries!! Your son will be placed in a gym with similar boys. We simply want them all to have a chance to learn and shines

Who will be training my son - coaching him?
Our site directors are carefully hand selected professionals that have impressive basketball experience - but also have the ability to teach and motivate young players. They will handle the instruction/drills each league day. We rely on parents to volunteer to coach the actual games. In fact we encourage parents to "roll up their sleeves" and step onto the court to help with drills. Positive spirited adults with a love of serving are encouraged to sign up to coach!
