FIRST GRADE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM
League Administrator (Acting) - Dale Howell DelbertDLH@hotmail.com
CYA Basketball offers a program for first graders that is strictly instructional. This means that each week the coaches work on different skills (shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, teamwork, etc.). Only one exhibition game is played, in mid-March. Generally first grade instructional sessions are held once a week for one hour between the hours of 5:00 and 7:00 PM Monday to Friday. The first grade sessions are held in local elementary school gyms (for example, Lees Corner or Navy).
First grade teams (usually 10 players) are formed by the league administrator based on school and neighborhood in mid-November. First grade instructional sessions start in mid-December and run through early March.
