The Bennington Basketball Association’s K-4 (originally K-3) League will be a 4 week clinic, starting in late October and running up to the later part of November. The clinic will be ran by a high school coach/BBA member with assistance from high school kids. At the start of each clinic day kids will work on a variety of skills including shooting, ball handling, passing, etc. After the skill work the kids will scrimmage in a chance to showcase what they have learned each day.
To expand on what the kids learned during the skills clinic there will also be a 4 week intramural game session offered through December and an optional 4 week game session offered from January to February. The players are divided up through a draft to organize teams. These games will be played on Saturday mornings starting in late November and ending in December for session 1. Session 2 will start in January and end in February.
The cost is $125 (this includes jersey top) for session 1
Optional cost is $75 (no jersey) for games only for session 2
