Basketball

Team Basketball - Team basketball consists of 5 on 5 team competition. We currently have 2 co-ed teams who have 2 hour practices 2 nights a week from November-January. During that time, the athletes develop their basketball skills and learn team concepts through individual drills, team drills and scrimmages. Athletes participate in practice games to prepare for the district basketball competition at the end of January. Teams who win a gold medal at the district competition advance to the State Special Olympics Games for basketball held in March.

Individual Skills Basketball - Athletes develop the basic basketball skills of dribbling, passing, catching and shooting in this event. Competition consists of a target pass, 10 meter dribble and spot shooting and points are awarded based the athlete’s ability to perform each skill. Practices occur once a week from November-middle of January to prepare for the area competition held in January. Individuals who win a gold medal at the area competition advance to the State Special Olympics Games for basketball held in March.
