Registration is open for the 2021-22 Kingsway Youth Basketball.

Refund policy due to Covid

We are sure everyone realizes that we are in a new world when it comes to Covid.  You are also aware that cost are incurred even if no games are played (Insurance, web sites, administration, etc).  We are opening registration and plan to have a fun season.  In the event that a pandemic would strike again and force the league closure the refund policy will be as follows.

75% refund if league is closed before uniforms are ordered.  Probably around 10/31 timeframe.  This will be shortly after kids are placed on teams. 

50% if league is closed prior to first games and after uniforms are ordered.  Jerseys will still be given to all members who were placed on a team.

25% after games begin, but before January 22, 2022.

0% after January 22th.

Refund for youth clinic is 75% before uniforms are ordered.   50% after uniforms are ordered.  0% after January 22.

This applies to a full season shut down only.

1st grade skills training program 2021-22

1st grade skills clinic typically runs for 8 weeks on Saturday morning starting in December. We reserve 9 weeks leaving 1 week for a make up week incase of snow/weather issues. The clinic is concluded with a day of fun, food, medals, and more.

1st grade skills training program includes, but is not limited to the following:

 

We will work on all of the following during our program:

  1. Lay ups- You should practice lots of lay ups with both hands. Your goal should be to get all players to make lay ups with their left and right hands equally well!! Teach them to jump off the proper foot. They should jump off the left leg when shooting a right hand lay up. They should shoot off their right leg when shooting a left hand lay up. It will be difficult but work on it. You'll probably need to start really close to the basket, with no dribble, and take just one step to practice the footwork. Once you add the dribble, they should dribble with their left hand when shooting left hand lay ups. And vice versa.

  2. Footwork - Teach them triple threat positioning, pivoting on their left and right foot without traveling,jump stops, and to square to the basket as soon as they catch the ball in a triple threat position. You should spend a lot of time on footwork!

  3. Shooting form- For this age group, we highly recommend using smaller balls and lower baskets. If that is not possible, allow the players to dip their elbows which will give them more strength.

  4. Ball handling- You should teach your players to dribble with left and right hands equally. Basic dribble moves such as the speed dribble, crossover, protect-the-ball dribble, and back-up dribble.

  5. Athletic & movement skills - Teach them how to run, jump and land, skip, stop, move laterally, squat, lunge and any other basic movements.

  6. Basic passes- Teach and practice the basic chest, bounce, and overhead passes.

  7. Play plenty of 2 on 2 and 3 on 3 games to teach concepts (no dribble keep away). It gets the players more experience and allows them enough space to operate and use the new skills they have learned.

  8. Offense - Do NOT use any structured or patterned offenses. First, get them comfortable on the court. They will start to figure things out on their own. Your main concern should be to have them move & not stand still.

  9. Basic cuts & how to get open - If time permits, you can introduce the basket cut and straight cut. I would suggest that you just work these cuts into your shooting drills at the beginning of practice. This will save loads of time.

  10. Defense - Teach the basic stance, defensive slide, and basic off-ball principles. Don't worry about spending as much time on defense. As they get older, you'll gradually spend more time on defense. Focusing on it 5 to 10 minutes per practice would be more than sufficient. 

    Basic Off Ball Principles:
    - Stay between man and the ball
    - Always stop the ball if it is in front of you!
