For grades K-2, our clinic program is an instructional program intended to increase interest by exposing the children to the basics of the game while having fun and providing an encouraging environment. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings.
The primary focus of the program is building each player’s confidence and skills through fundamental drills and team play. The majority of the program sessions are dedicated to fundamental basketball drills in dribbling, passing and shooting.
The clinic is run by St. John’s parents and/or coaches under the supervision and guidance of the clinic director. St. John’s Varsity basketball players often assist each week as well.
The St. John’s gym has two full courts with fully adjustable baskets. Basketballs are provided by St. John’s and players should not bring basketballs to the clinic.
Session groupings are primarily based on grade, though depending on enrollment in some cases we may combine different groups with lower numbers.
The Clinic runs on most Saturday mornings from November – February. Time slots for each grouping are determined after registration has completed, but generally consist of 1-hour sessions between 9am – noon.
The Clinic is open to all boys and girls in grades K – 2.
The Clinic is based on grade level and is intended for children in grades K – 2. Although 3rd grade children typically enroll in our competitive CYO program, those looking for a more lightweight exposure to Basketball for their 3rd grader can enroll them in the clinic instead.
