78 Youth Sports offers opportunities for co-ed players at all skill levels and ages 5-17 to play basketball!  It’s fast-paced and tons of fun!

Our Basketball Program is divided into two parts:

Through research and our own experience, we know that developing young players before they play in a league helps breed success now and later.  This is why we offer fundamental training for our youngest players!

  • Basketball Fundamentals (ages 5 – 8). Learning the game.
  • ‘Rec’ Basketball (ages 7 – 17).  Playing games.

BASKETBALL FUNDAMENTALS (co-ed, ages 5 – 14).  Sign-up, learn and have fun!

Young players learn:

  • Game basics (how to play the game).
  • Skills (dribbling, defense, passing, shooting).
  • Mental strategies (values needed to play as a team).
  • Modified, age-appropriate game play.

We offer lots of opportunities:

  • Three sessions: Sept – Nov, Dec – Feb, Mar – May.
  • Programs on weekends.
  • Age-appropriate length, 50-80 minutes long. 
  • Lots of options!  Choose what works for you when you register.
