Small Ball

The 2018-19 small ball Season

OSBA is excited to announce that we have partnered with Right Way Basketball (rightwaybasketball.com) to lead our 2018/2019 small ball program.

This youth development program introduces boys and girls, ages 5 - 7 to the game of basketball and will emphasize physical literacy (agility, balance, coordination, speed and general movement), basketball fundamentals (shooting, ball handling, dribbling, passing & receiving), and character development.

Coaches in the program are focused on helping to create a positive, safe and encouraging learning environment in which children can challenge each other and themselves to become better players and people.

Right Way takes great care to build trusting relationships with our youngest athletes by providing an enjoyable physical, social, and mental experience.
