Mini Hoops Program Overview 2018-2019 Season
The Mini Hoops Program is a non-competitive skills based program, geared for boys and girls from kindergarten through 2nd grade. The goal is to provide a fun exposure to basketball for these players so that they are interested in continuing in the GBL rec program and beyond. Our sessions are also a great opportunity for kids(and their parents) to be with their friends and make new ones.
Teams are formed by the Mini Hoops Coordinator in mid November. Sessions run on Saturdays for 55 minutes per team per week. We generally use Melissa Jones gym and some years use Calvin Leete for older players. Each team(usually 6-10 players per team) has access to half the gym for their session.
We use volunteer parent coaches and assistant coaches. Coaching guidance is provided in person during orientation and we make additional resources available through our website-including our youtube channel with drill demonstrations with GBL players. In 2015, GBL partnered with the Positive Coaching Alliance. Anyone considering getting involved as a coach–this is the league for you to do it!
The Mini Hoops season runs from December 3rd until February 24th. See website for specific details. We try to get 10 sessions in but if weather causes cancelation we cannot make up those sessions. All players receive a GBL team shirt. Appropriate sized basketballs are available for players to use during the sessions.
Cost for 2018 is $105 We have an early bird discount of $15 for registrations before Oct 8th. Registrations after Oct 29th are assessed a $30 late registration fee.
