In the fall of 2017 Todd Nash will teach an 8 week series of Basketball Classes in Southern California. Each of these classes will meet one day of the week for 1 hour. The class will teach the basic individual skills in basketball as well as teaching some team play and some small group games. Basketball is a sport EVERY child should learn at the basic level because it develops critical motor skills, coordination, rhythm, timing, and develops cross brain connections better than any sport. They don't have to every play in a league, but every child should learn the basic skills in basketball, regardless of their athletic interests! We don't ask our children if they want to learn subtraction or learn history - we make them learn those subjects EVEN IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT because we know they need it. You should do the same with their physical EDUCATION! Learning these physical skills is a critical part of their education. These classes are planned and structured so every child will develop individual skills. We don't just throw out a ball and have them try to play the game. This is why they should all take this class!
Basketballs will be provided in 3 different sizes - 27.5", 28.5" and 29.5". Todd will teach ball handling drills, dribbling drills and skills, passing, shooting technique, defensive positioning, and small group games. It is a good class for students regardless of their skill level. It is a good class for students new to the sport, as well as for those who have played many years of basketball to sharpen their individual skills.
COST: The Basketball Class fee is $95 per student for a check or $100 for a charter school PO - a BARGAIN when it comes to
quality athletic instruction! Todd is a vendor with all southern California charter schools.
Schedule: Each class will meet once a week for 8 consecutive weeks for 1 hour on the schedule shown below.
The schedule will be as follows: TBD
