Mini-Basket

 

http://basketball.ca/en/coaching-resource/mini-basket

Mini-Basket is designed for school, community or club basketball players and programs. The philosophy of Mini-Basket is to allow children to play a game that is better suited to the development of their physical, mental and basketball skills by instituting Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) modifications. It aims to provide a rich and high quality experience for youth basketball players to help foster their passion as they grow with the sport. 

There are fewer rules that are gradually introduced as the player’s progress in their skill development and understanding of the game, keeping it developmentally appropriate. There are certain aspects to the game that are modified (i.e. ball size, court size, number of players, height of the hoop etc.) to maximize the development plan to its full potential. 

Mini-Basket is currently being delivered by the following organizations and all resources to run the programming are available on the OBA website – get started!:
