Basketball - 3rd Girls
The Oakhill Day School third and fourth grade girls basketball program participates in the Pius League at St. Pius X High School. The school is located about five miles down the road from Oakhill. Practices for the team will begin late November, with games beginning the first week of January. In league play each team will play 6 - 7 regular season games. At the conclusion of the regular season, teams will participate in the Pius League single-elimination postseason tournament.
At the third-fourth grade level the development of each child’s skills and their understanding of the game is most important. A major focus of the program is placed on continuing to develop those fundamental basketball skills of each child. Practices will emphasize drill work; with a focus on ball handling (dribbling with right/left hand), passing, defensive work, and shooting. Building upon the skills each athlete possesses, and helping them grow and improve their game are a key component of the program.
Hope to see you on the hardwood this winter!
