Should they be warm before the session?

We will warm up at the beginning of every session. Players should have all their clothes on, shoes tied, bags put away & be ready to go by the session time.

 

Does my child's height matter?

Not at all. Basketball is a game for all heights. Being tall does not necessarily mean being good at Basketball. The skill they learn will be transferable whether they grow into playing in the post or playing a guard position. 

 

Does my child's experience level matter?

No. Basketball is like anything else. It's a set of skills that need to be taught, practiced, evaluated & continued. All levels of ability are welcome.
