Small Ball

 

THE 2018-19 SMALL BALL SEASON

OSBA is pleased to announce that we will be continuing to partner with Right Way Basketball (rightwaybasketball.com) into 2019, to lead the remaining semester of our Small Ball program.

This introductory youth development program is a great opportunity for boys and girls, ages 5 - 7 to spark an interest in the game of basketball. The program emphasizes 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. With years of experience at this age level, Right Way has designed a youth curriculum that engages players and supports parents, providing intentional skill development with an emphasis on helping these young kids become ‘athletes’ with a good grounding in the fundamentals.

  • The upcoming winter semester will start the week of January 7 and will run for 10 weeks.

  • Players who were part of the first semester will be required to register and pay a separate $100 fee for the winter semester.

  • A maximum of 20 participants will be accepted in each age group for each session.

  • Registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis with full payment due at time of registration.

THE WINTER SESSIONS

OSBA recognizes there are young players at different stages in their development. Our program attempts to provide a pathway that engages each level of player.
