Raymore Parks & Recreation offers a variety of youth basketball programs. We offer an instructional program for 5-year-olds and kindergartners to prepare them for the recreation leagues. Our recreation league is for K through 8th graders and our competitive league is for full teams only in 4th through 8th grades.
This six-week instructional basketball league for Kindergartners and/or 5-year-olds is designed to give kids an opportunity to play in a structured environment with other children. The sessions focus on basic skill development such as dribbling, shooting, passing and defending. This is a great way to start building basic skills & fundamentals or to continue training in basketball while preparing for future league play. Parents will be used to assist in coaching and drills. A parent packet will be emailed to all participating families to discuss class philosophy, schedule and camp information. All players receive a shirt and award for completing the program.Dates: Saturdays, Jan. 11 - Feb. 15
