Teaching children the basics of sports fundamentals

May 1st Tee Ball and Soccer Classes are now open. Summer Tee Ball and Soccer class registration opens April 19th

Tot Basketball

馃弨Tot Basketball has been designed to introduce children ages 3-6 to the game of basketball in a non-competitive environment through repetition and teamwork in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. Age appropriate safety equipment is used to include 3ft - 7ft hoops and mini-basketballs.    You do NOT need to be a resident of Avon Lake to participate. 



Additional intellectual and social skills/tools to be developed

  • Listening
  • Following Directions
  • Forming Lines
  • Taking Turn
  • Confidence
  • Self Esteem Building

Each child should come with a change of shoes to reduce water on the court and eliminate slips and falls.

Classes run for 60 minutes each week, for five (5) week per session.

In unexpected instances where there are less than 10 tots enrolled in a time slot, classes may be combined. Parents will be contacted and notified at the close of Open Enrollment if this issue arises.

About the Basketball Program:

Program goals for your children;

路馃弨      Learn to do a catch and pass!

路馃弨     Learn defense

路馃弨   Learn shooting form

路馃弨     Learn dribbling

路馃弨      Have FUN

 Equipment: For this age group, safety and learning comes first! For Tot Basketball class we will use mini basketballs and will have hoops that adjust 3 陆 to 8ft.  These will be weighted down with 25 鈥 50lbs salt bags  please do not let any of your children attempt to dunk, pull on the next and lean on the hoop standard..

Coaches Responsibilities:

 Those parents who can volunteer and help coach, Thank You.  Coaches will work  along side my staff.   During Basketball  Stations you will assist in moving your team from station to station and assist your team at each drill station. 

My staff and I always coach on the field when we practice/play. So during this time things maybe slowed down a bit, but we want to start coaching your child on the spot. One field maybe done before the other is completed. If it鈥檚 possible please stay until everyone is finished

**Homework assigned 鈥 The children will receive a hand stamp, than be asked to go to their parents, grandparents etc. after 鈥淗uddle Time鈥 and give them a HUG, KISS and say THANK YOU for bringing them.  If they forget, please send them back to see a coach.

 Social Media:

I am a big social media person, so if you are on Instagram or Facebook please friend me. If you鈥檙e on Facebook, go to Preschool Sports and like the page. Why you ask, this will be the just one way of finding out about upcoming programs or class cancelations due to unforeseen weather.  

As all of you are taking such great pictures and videos with your cameras/phones, if you would be willing to share them by tagging me (Craig Collins) or post them to the Preschool Sports FB page.  OR if you could hash tag "#Preschoolsports鈥 I would appreciate it. Thanks for sharing!
