We ensure safety first. Fun second. Basketball third.
We guarantee a 1:1 volunteer to player ratio. This is key to our programs success! Sometimes we will have a 2:1 or 3:1 volunteer to player ratio, but it will never be the other way around.
This program is unique for every child; one size does not fit all. Each buddy pairing will function differently based on the needs of the player.
Our division is NOT competitive; players will not “win” or “lose”.
This is our fourth year in operation. We realize that we are not perfect, and are constantly finding ways to improve the experience of our program for our participants. We are open to suggestions!
We try to achieve a specific goal over the duration of the program. This goal is developed by the family and NYABC. (i.e. improving patience, building social skills, motor skills, etc.)
We try to teach the players how to dribble, pass (bounce passes only), shoot, and the basic rules of the game of basketball. The rules are very lightly enforced.
The program may look like chaos at times. As long as the kids are safe and are having fun, just go with it!
What is the frequency of the clinic and how long does it last per session?
A typical clinic will run 2 – 4 consecutive weeks (1 day per week). A typical day will run 1 hour of gym time with a 15 minute snack following the clinic.
How much does it cost to participate in the program?
A typical clinic will cost:
2 weeks: $50
3 weeks: $75
4 weeks: $95
As a parent, do I have to stay the entire time/be involved in the clinic?
We require the parents to stay the duration of the clinic in the event of an emergency. If you would like to be involved in the clinic, you are more than welcome to participate with your child!
What is the age range of the participants?
There are no age limitations.
What is the ratio of staff to players?
We guarantee a 1:1 ratio between player and coach. In addition, there will be multiple support staff and one camp facilitator.
