Spotlight: Basketball Program Enhancements

Posted on September 20th, 2021 by Lara

The GRD is excited to announce a new approach to the upcoming Travel and Rec Basketball seasons. We have been working with the Boys and Girls High School coaching staffs to develop a cohesive basketball product that will allow our participants success now and in the future.

The Basketball program will build on its past success with some exciting enhancements this year!  

With continued focus on the fundamentals, robust skill development will be paramount for all of our basketball offerings. As we help to build confident players with a solid understanding of the game, they will be able to lean into not only a skills led approach to the game, but also tap into their creative thinking as they work through game play. A few instrumental changes to the program this year will be: 

  1. An Intro to Basketball camp style season for our youngest and new to the game athletes. (Boys & Girls Grades K – 3) 
  2. A 3v3 play (vs past 5v5 play) core offering that enables each player on the floor to be a vital part of the game, to enhance their skills and decision making on the court. (Boys & Girls Grades 3 – 6)
  3. Travel option with a focus on skill development and increased competitive play. (Boys & Girls Grades 4 – 6)

The overall program has a simple, core goal of FUN and competitive development that fosters a passion for the game and a connection with our school teams. Go Aces!
