Future Stars

The Future Stars (4-6 age) is a 7 week program, compared to 9 dates for the other age groups. This is a very basic clinic type of program. Our goal is the kids learn to dribble, pass, shoot, and how to get up the court on offense and back on defense. It is an introductory model. Kids will do a lot of drills each week and then divide up into scrimmage games so they can learn the full court game.

Which Age Group Should you Put your Child?

We use a child’s age as a barometer, not a decision maker. Each child matures differently and some kids start playing sports at earlier age than others. For example, an inexperienced 9 year old may choose to participate in our 7-9 Tiny Hot Shots division, while a more experienced 9 year old may want to play in the Mini Hot Shot Division of 9 to 11 year old’s. Similarly, an 11 year old child that is relatively new to basketball, may want to choose the 9 to 11 Mini Hot Shot division, while a very experienced 11 year old may want to participate in the 11 to 13 Little Hot Shot Division.
