Basketball Academy for girls and boys in grades 1-5.
Students (both boys and girls) are eligible for the St. Mary’s Basketball Academy even if they are also playing city league basketball. The purpose of the St. Mary’s Basketball Academy will be to teach solid basketball fundamentals (e.g. dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, setting picks, etc.) and learn some basic offensive and defensive schemes. As a supplement to our fundamentals training, there will be some practice time set aside for 3v3 and 5v5 scrimmage games. The St. Mary’s Basketball Academy will hold practices twice a week at either St Angela Hall or other gyms in the local Aiken area. Basketball Academy runs from Early December to Late January or early February. Participation forms will be available in late November.
