GIVE YOUR CHILD A JUMP START ON THE SEASON!
Each preseason SAC provides an opportunity for our 4-6th graders to attend a skills and training session that will be hosted by Sycamore High School Coaches and Players. There will be separate sessions organized by age group. These sessions are a great way to get your child back into the swing of basketball. The time will primarily be spent running drills with an emphasis on learning and skill development. We typically have time for some scrimmaging and games.
Q: Who can attend JumpStart?
A: 4th, 5th, or 6th grade Boys & Girls who live in the Sycamore School District
Q: When are the sessions and how long do they last?
A: Sessions are held on Monday nights at E.H. Greene Intermediate School from 6-9 pm and last approximately 60 minutes per age group.
