The TOP Basketball program provides a development pathway for players ages 5 to 13, focusing on skill development, quality coaching, and manageable schedules for all program streams.
We structure our programs so that players are placed into small groups rotating through stations focusing on individual skills, technical instruction, and game-based learning. We believe our small group format is essential for kids to get individual feedback, quality coaching, and high-level engagement. We believe that the values learned from team sports (discipline, accountability, and leadership), are ones that will transcend well beyond sport, and we aim to build those values from day one. We will push your kids to get better by creating a fun, engaging, and disciplined environment conducive to learning, and will always have your child's best interests at heart.
Updated information on the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 season is now published below. Registration for Development and Learn-to-Play programs are now open. The Fall/Winter Season will run from November 15th to April 6th
Intermediate/advanced basketball program with an emphasis on skill development, fundamentals, and small-area games each week. All players must complete a Learn-to-Play program to be eligible. Players will be grouped by age and ability.
Basic fundamental instruction and an introduction to small-area gameplay. Perfect for 5-8 year old beginners looking to learn to play in a fun and engaging environment. Given the height of hoops in basketball and the challenges finding age-appropriate facilities, we begin this Learn-to-Play program slightly later than our other LTP programs.
