Kindergartener's play on teams of 8 players. They practice and play for one hour each Saturday morning at the SMS gym between 8:00AM and 10:00 AM. The hour is split as follows: the first ½ hour is dedicated to practicing individual skills and basketball fundamentals. The last ½ hour is a structured game playing 3 v 3 with the hoops lowered to 7'. The goal of this 9 week session is to introduce the game of basketball to young players, working on the basics of dribbling, passing, shooting and playing together as a team. Coaches continue to instruct players during games as well as during their practice time.
