2nd to 4th Grade
Our 2nd to 4th grade Basketball Kids curriculum continues with an emphasis on core basketball and emotional skills from our Pre-K to 1st Grade program, but with an increased intensity, intermediate basketball techniques, and leadership development. Students in the 2nd to 4th grade program have a greater ability to follow a multi-step drill, demonstrate skills to their classmates, and compete against their peers, while simultaneously improving their speed, agility, balance, body awareness, and hand-eye coordination. All of this is done in a small group setting under the guidance of our expert coaches.
We offer three membership options:
Standard commits you to attending class the same day every week.
Flex gives you access to one class a week with the flexibility to attend whichever day fits your schedule that week.
Unlimited allows you to access all classes in a season. That's 16 classes in all!
We offer our classes for 2nd to 4th grade Basketball Kids two days a week - Wednesday at 5:30 pm at Menomonee Club Drucker Center in Lincoln Park and Sunday at 1 pm at Mercy Home in the West Loop.
