Girls 3rd/4th/5th Grade Skills Development Basketball Clinic

The Columbia Ravens Basketball Program is hosting a Skills Development Group for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Girls that have Recreational Basketball experience who want to improve their skills in order to prepare for Travel Basketball (Fall Travel Tryouts) or improve their current travel player skills.

The group will meet at least 1 time a week for 1 hour from 5pm to 6pm Tuesdays and some Thursday Nights to work on individual skill for six (6) clinic sessions.

Description: The 1 hour sessions will focus on fundamental skills training (ball handling, passing, shooting,) to improve individual skill. There will be no full court games just 1 hour of training however in addition to drills, sessions will include 2v2 and 3v3 half court play to ensure each child gets lots of “touches” with the ball in game like setting. During the last few clinic sessions the girls be exposed to drills used during travel team tryouts to give them an idea of what is required to play at a higher level (travel).

* Players MUST bring a 28.5 size Women’s Basketball and water bottle to each session, and wear basketball/tennis shoes.

Dates: The Sessions during April and early May as listed below (we may adjust dates for any unforeseen cancellations, etc.).

Tuesdays – April 18, April 25, May 2, May 9, May 16
Thursdays - May 11, May 18*
*make up day if needed

Location: The group training sessions Dancel Family YMCA Center in Ellicott City, MD and/or local Howard County Public Schools.

Registration Cost: The cost for participation in all of the sessions (for 6 weeks) will be $150.00 per player (each player will receive a Ravens reversible jersey to wear to practices).
*A minimum of 15 participants must register or the clinic may not be held.

Eligible Participants: Girls in 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade with Recreational Basketball and/or Travel Basketball Experience. Note: Participation does not guarantee that any player will make a Ravens Travel Team in the fall/winter. The skills group will focus on strong fundamentals and training and players will need to practice on their own in addition to the skills sessions to be able to compete for a spot on a travel team in the fall.
