Big Sky Ballin’ along with Run and Gun is proud to announce the 1st Annual Summer Youth Basketball League and Training. After numerous requests from parents and young athletes, Big Sky Ballin’ has designed a league that combines basketball with sports specific training to allow young players to have fun while truly developing their skills!
Unlike most leagues, Big Sky Ballin Youth Basketball League and Training is designed using a 3-prong approach:
- Teaching /Coaching (1 hour a weekly)
- Sports Specific Training (1 hour weekly)
- Competitive Games (1 hour weekly)
Each week athletes will be exposed to each of the three areas. This allows athletes to learn in a team environment (Practice), work on sport specific skills with experienced athletes and coaches (Training), and test their skill against other athletes of the same age and gender (Games). This league is designed for boys and girls grade 1-6 of all competitive levels. The league will run for approximately 6 weeks with all of the activities associated with the league happening during the week!
All athletes will participate in an Evaluation Day to assess their skill level. The evaluation day will be held at Lockwood Elementary on April 23, 2016. The evaluation process will be used to assign players to teams to ensure that the talent is evenly dispersed throughout each division.
