Matthews Elementary School
“AA” League - Player ages 5 & 6 (age as of August 1, 2018; Co-ed)
Practices/Games: Saturdays only, between 10 am and 2 pm, at both Matthews Elementary and Elizabeth Lane Elementary
The objectives of the “AA” League Basketball programs are to teach sportsmanship, teamwork, develop basketball skills and most of all to have fun. We want the players to enjoy their experience playing a team sport.
Teams consist of approximately 6 players and games are played in a 4 versus 4 format. Games are played on 9ft goals to develop proper shooting form.
Games are refereed by the hands-on coaches with an emphasis on basic fundamentals such as traveling, double dribbles and boundaries. There is a “no steals” rule and each game consists of 8 minute quarters. Our season will include approximately 8 weeks of games and practices will be on Saturdays.
Our season is geared towards preparing the players for "A" (7-8 year old) league competition where games include game clocks, referees and regulation 10 ft Baskets.
