Girls Middle School Basketball Clinics

NPSC's Middle School Basketball Clinic  will be used to prepare players for basketball tryouts. There will be a focus on offensive and defensive skill development and building positive habits that lead to better efficiency on the basketball court. Players will perform drills that improve their basketball IQ and that improve the impact they make from an individual and team aspect. Emphasis will be placed on effective ball handling, moving without the ball to get open through using screens and effective cutting, perfecting offensive scoring moves, proper shooting form and mechanics, making smart decisions with and without the basketball, and improving and developing a defensive mindset. 

Girls ages 11-13 or Grades 6-8

Clinics will have a max of  12  players per session

Boys Clinic is held in the fall
