Micelin Minutemen Basketball
GRADES 1 - 3
Players at this age are learning to perform more than one skill at a time on the court. They still possess a “Me” mentality and are not accustomed to the concept of team (i.e. passing the ball, offensive movement, etc.). Although they are still developing foundational hand-eye coordination, they are able to accomplish some basic basketball skills (dribbling with one hand, not moving feet during a shot, the distinction between offense and defense, etc.) Because of this, rules have been designed to allow athletes to compete in a format that coordinates with their level of mental and physical capacities.
