3rd & 4th Grade Basketball Development Program

Spring 2023

Sorry, we have reached capacity for this program! Further communication will be sent later this summer on additional programs for Fall 2023.

LSA is launching a 3rd & 4th Grade Boys Basketball Development Program to Lincolnshire Student Athletes. The goal of this program is to give our 3rd & 4th grade boys an opportunity to improve basketball skills, hand/eye coordination, mental aptitude, and conditioning, as well as learning the importance of teamwork to cultivate a tighter bond amongst each other through athletics. While this program will be basketball focused, skill development will be cross functional and applicable to other sports such as Football, Track, Lacrosse, Soccer, and Baseball.

As part of this program, three (3) coaches will host eleven (11), 90-minute skill improvement sessions at Daniel Wright. The program will start Thursday, April 6th and include one to two (1-2) sessions per week for eight (8) straight weeks concluding prior to June.

Each player will need to bring a basketball and will use their Lincolnshire Rec League reversible jerseys. The cost of this clinic will be $120 per participant.

Please note, for this Spring Session, we will be limiting participants to a maximum of 20 players.
