2019 Hoopsters

Hoopsters is a series of fun infused clinics for all of Natick’s Kindergarten through 3rd grade children. The focus is on basketball fundamentals (shooting, dribbling and passing) in a non-competitive environment. We aim to get kids excited about basketball and expose them to skills with drills, contests and small games.

Hoopsters includes four grade specific sessions – K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade – with tailored grade appropriate curriculums. Hoopsters is not a competitive travel basketball league.

For the K, 1st and 2nd graders, we focus on grade appropriate skills and small games each week with the kids playing on 8.5 ft basketball hoops.

In our dedicated 3rd grade session we expand our focus to include both individual and game skills with time dedicated to 3 v 3 basketball games each week.

About Hoopsters

Natick Basketball Teams Helping the Community

This year Natick Travel Basketball has partnered with the Council on Aging to help rake leaves for 13 homes. The owners of these homes have difficulty with raking and picking up leaves. 4th-8th grade teams are volunteering throughout Natick to make the task a little easier for them this year. Below are some photos taken of the players taking time to help their community.

 

AAU Programs

If your child is interested in playing AAU basketball, there are a few great local organizations to consider. Spring season tryouts for most organizations start in mid January. Fall season tryouts usually start in early August. AAU is NOT affiliated with Natick Travel basketball.
