About Intramural Basketball (Grades K-2)
Commissioner: Kailyn Aspanthiya-Gedara (email@example.com)
Season: January - February
KINDERGARTEN - 2nd GRADE
This co-ed program is really the gem of the intramural program. Children are broken down into various teams dividing players evenly as to have an equal distribution of kindergarten and first graders on the teams. The beginning of each 1 hour session is dedicated to basic basketball skill instruction. The volunteer coaches will help to get the players acquainted with shooting, passing and dribbling. The remainder of the time is spent in "game-style" play. Two games are played simultaneously, using the 8' baskets. All players will get equal playing time each week. The season finals are celebrated with a presentation of participation awards to each and every child.
We do have a strict age requirement - Players must be between Kindergarten and 2nd Grade. Children not yet in Kindergarten are not eligible to play.
All players will receive a team jersey of their own. Players must wear athletic shoes. “Heelies” are strictly forbidden.
