Offering affordable, year-round sports programs and summer camps to children in Strathmore and surrounding communities. Our programs are designed to keep children active, develop athletic abilities, and build self-esteem in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

 

 JETS BASKETBALL

  JETS Basketball is our Fall program running September, October, and November every year. 

Once a week, we offer three separate sessions for students in Grades 1-3, 4-5, and 6-9. In each one hour session, run by Coach Pat Fule and his assistants, the first half hour is spent on educational and enjoyable skills and drills. Following this half hour session, the players are put onto teams with separately coloured t-shirts. This becomes game time, and the players play in regular games, but we make sure our teams on the court are smaller. We play 3-on-3 cross-court games, so that our players have more opportunities to touch the ball, helping them to develop skills. In traditional 5-on-5 games, players spend a great deal of time playing, yet hardly touch the actual basketball. Some of our other modifications include lowering the baskets for our younger players, as well as using smaller balls. The smaller basketballs are easier to handle, thereby help our younger participants dribble, pass, and shoot easier. The smaller ball also helps with scoring, as the rim itself remains regulation-sized (large enough to have two adult basketballs fall through it).

The oldest session (Grades 6-9) is the more competitive one. We still stress fun and fundamentals, but we move to regulation sized basketballs and the appropriate basketball height of 10 feet. Games are the for the most part 3-on-3, but we may have some 4-on-4 games, where we can introduce the Forward (or Post) position. Depending on the groups' skill level, we may even keep statistics and standings. In any case, our JETS sessions offer a combination of skill building activities and game play, all within a one hour period.
