2023-2024 AWJRGBB 3rd-6th Rec Basketball


2023-2024 AWJRGBC 3rd-6th Grade Rec Basketball

This program is designed to introduce boys and girls to basketball who are currently enrolled in 3rd through 6th grade and live in the Anthony Wayne School District and surrounding areas. This league extends from November to February, offers one practice/week, and 8 game regular season, and post season tournament. Our volunteer parent coaches use the philosophies from our high school basketball programs to develop the skills necessary to play the game of basketball throughout the season -- dribbling, shooting, rebounding, passing, screening and defense. Focusing on the basics and applying them to a game setting is to prepare them for the organized basketball that continues into 7th grade.
