The program is focused on the basics of learning the fundamentals of basketball. Most of the time the kids will be doing activities to learn about basketball and the goal is for them to gain confidence in dribbling, passing and shooting the ball. Games are only introduced later in the program around the 4th week.
PARENT RUN PROGRAM: All IHM Athletic Ministry programs are run by active parent volunteers. We have a Program Director who helps administer the program but the actual coaching is all done by parents. Parent participation is encouraged and you will enjoy the program more as you become active with the children. All volunteer parents must have completed the VIRTUS Program screening and training before becoming involved with the program.
