EMH PE Basketball Starts THIS Week-Why Starting At A Young Age Works!!
FYI. Contact Julian directly if interested…see contact information at the end of this e-mail.
I hope that everyone has had a great holiday season so far!
Our PE Basketball class is starting the first week of January. Shooting hoops, dribbling and learning how the game is played provides a great way for your child/children to exercise.
Learning to play basketball is more than just “making a basket” and while that is the major goal of the game, there are other skills required to make it happen. The sport involves dribbling, throwing, catching and pivoting and the younger you start your children playing it, the more coordinated they will become. Beginning basketball training for your little ones improves gross motor skills by using major muscle groups. The younger children will gain strength in their legs and arms aiming for the rim. You’d be surprised how many will actually hit it or make a basket before the month is over! The coaches will give points for the effort of hitting the rim or net which will build confidence and makes it exciting for the younger players. Some areas will have smaller basketballs provided.
The older students will develop the same muscle groups and team building skills. They will improve their flexibility and endurance along with their hand-eye coordination. These motor skills will also transfer to other activities of daily life.
