HOOPS

16195882_1300863423306637_2674725910754485096_nThe goal of the HOOPS program is to Honor Our Only Personal Savior, Jesus Christ, in everything we do. We hope to teach and improve basketball skills, introduce children to a positive competitive environment, and reinforce the meaning of playing on a TEAM. Sometimes this means your child may not shoot every time they are open but will pass the ball instead. Sometimes this means that a violation may be called against a skilled player that is not called against an unskilled player. This allows us to work on TEAM building skills and allows all players the opportunity to participate and see success.
