No, not a Santa suit… we thankfully still have a few weeks for that. But with December on its way, it’s time for youth basketball in the GAP area. Here are two local spots for hoops:
Chestnut Hill Youth Sports Basketball League (ages 6 & up)
Co-ed league with once/week practice and once/week games. Coached by volunteer parents and community members. Kids over age 7 must attend tryout session to be placed on a team.
Matt Paul Basketball (ages 5 & up)
Boys and girls aged 5-17 learn basketball and life skills. Program is run by basketball players. Weekly clinics, individual and team coaching, summer and school break camps, pre-season workouts, drills and skills and specialized workshops. Players receive individual and group instruction, refine and develop skills through targeted and interesting drills (ball handling, shooting, passing, rebounding and defense) and participate in individual, 3-on-3 and full-court competitions.
