John Karzen Basketball is a co-ed basketball program for juniors, ages 4 through 13. The program initially started in 1999 as a summer camp program with 20 campers per day. Today the program is year round with over 12 independent classes per week with approximately 200 students enrolled.
Our goals are:
Little Dribblers Program (ages 4-5) is structured for fundamental movement skills, coordination and balance. Emphasis is on beginning dribbling, passing, shooting, defense, and rebounding skills.
Dribblers Program (ages 6-7) is also structured for fundamental movement skills, coordination and balance while increasing development in ball handling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defense.
3 Pointers Program (ages 8-10) is structured for increased technical development of basic basketball skills - ball handling, passing, shooting and rebounding while adding positions, defense, transition play, screens and plays.
Advanced 3 Pointers Program (ages 11-13) is structured for more precise development of basic skills while adding an increased knowledge of each position player's responsibilities for an increased basketball IQ. Basketball specific conditioning and 'teaching scrimmages' will be heavily emphasized.
