Basketball - K/1st Grade
The Oakhill Day School Kindergarten - first grade basketball program participates in the Nativity League, at Nativity of Mary School in Kansas City. This is a coed league, boys and girls will be on the court playing together. Games are typically on Saturday mornings, with an occasional Friday evening game. Practices will begin in December, with games beginning early January. Teams will play approximately 6 - 7 games throughout the season.
The Kindergarten-first grade basketball league is an instructional based league; the most important thing is that each child grows and develops an understanding of the game, along with developing and improving their basic fundamental skills of the sport. A focus of the program is dribbling (ball handling skills - left/rt. handed), practices will also focus on passing, learning to play defense in the correct manner, and shooting.
Building upon the skills each athlete possesses, and helping them grow and improve their game are a key component of the program.
We hope to see you on the hardwood this winter!
