These are Sunday training classes throughout the fall and winter that follow the Jr. NBA "Rookie" level curriculum and are for beginner level boys and girls in grades 1-6. 

The Jr. NBA has developed a new, turnkey instructional curriculum designed to better the youth basketball experience for players, parents, and coaches. The curriculum features four levels - Rookie, Starter, All-Star, and MVP - that provide proper instruction to youth players at every level of skill development.

At the Rookie level, the game is all about fun, being active, and learning basic fundamental skills. This is the first introduction to basketball for most players and it should be a positive experience. Five-on-five competitions should be limited until later in the level(s). The goal of the Rookie level is to engage in activity and form a base of motor skills.

Some of the fundamentals that are introduced in the Rookie level include having a good athletic stance, running, jumping, stopping, balance, ball-handling, passing, receiving, and shooting. These movements and skills will lay the foundation for skills acquired later in the pathway.

Once player successfully complete the "Rookie" level, they can then move on to the "Starter" level. For more information on the Jr. NBA Instructional Curriculum please visit their website here!
