Mittelstadt Basketball Team

Mittelstadt is offering a Basketball Clinic for 4th and 5th grade boys. Clinics for 4th grade boys will be held on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm. Clinics for 5th grade boys will be held on Fridays from 4:00-5:00 pm. Parents are responsible for transportation after clinics. Clinics will begin on October 10th for 4th grade and October 13th for 5th grade and continue through the months of November and December.

During clinics we will focus on physical conditioning, importance of teamwork, basketball techniques, such as dribbling, shooting, defensive posture, and their understanding of the game. The goal is to establish disciplines both in the classroom and in the competition arena.

In order for this program’s success, we desire parental involvement. More details will be supplied as we prepare for the spring basketball league. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Casserly at 832-484-6670.
