Biddy Ball Program

We are excited to continue 'FUN'damental' basketball to our youngest players! Players as young as 5 and 6 are at a great age to build the primary skills of basketball and develop a love for the game.  Parents are invited and encouraged in the gym.  Players should bring a size 27.5 basketball.
