Basketball Classes

Basketball ClassThe Jack E. Kirksey Recreation Center offers an instructional basketball clinic for youth ages five to nine on Tuesday evenings in the Fall, Winter and Spring Sessions. The class teaches the fundamentals of basketball on an eight-foot rim.

Each week kids will have fun participating in various skills and drills working their way up to a minimum of three to four class days of scrimmages and learning a basic offense and defense.
