*Coaches should focus on teamwork, proper dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, defense, etc






No referees for FUN-damentals age group


*Coaches are in charge of flow of game & can enter court to teach or demonstrate


*Before scrimmage games begin, there will be approx 10 mins of team vs. team fun relays  = dribbling, passing, shooting skills


*please end 3-5 minutes before end of the hour so your team can exit & next team can enter & warm-up








Approx. Hour Timeline for Saturday scrimmage games in Jan - Mar:


1st 5-7 minutes = Players warm up as a team


Next 10-15 minutes = Team vs. Team FUN challenge competitions / relays….see examples below.


Last 40 minutes = Team vs. Team Full court game


*All scrimmage games will be 5 vs 5


*All 5 defensive players will stand on the marked 1-5 #s in your team bag in the lane while on defense


*The #s reduce defensive pressure & allow teams more passes & shots = more made baskets overall by young players








The 2 Head coaches will decide which fun competitions / relays to do after team warm ups.







“Dribbling full length of court & back” competition


“Dribbling full length of court, lay up / jump shot & dribble back” competition


“Chest & Bounce pass” 1 long line team vs. team competition


“Lay-up”, "Free throw" & Jump shot competitions








NO Free throws for 1st 4 weeks of games, as it takes too long to set players up


*If a player is fouling, coaches can take time to explain & the ball is taken out at side court


*after week 4, coaches can choose to set up & shoot free throws if they feel teams are ready








EQUAL playing time for ALL players!  Every player must be substituted fairly


*Main goals for this young age is player development, confidence & learning the FUN-damentals!


*Rotate players at point guard during game so all players get a chance to dribble the ball up the court
