Basketball season is still over a month away but the West Side Recreation and Park District is already looking ahead with a series of classes through the Attles School of basketball.
There will be four classes over the next three months with the first taking place October 21. The next one will take place October 28. Three classes will be held in November on the fourth, eleventh and eighteenth.
Classes will also be held on December 2, 9, 16 and 30. The final three dates are set for January 6, 13 and 20. All of the classes will be held on a Sunday from 4-6 p.m.
The cost is $15 per class or $150 for all 12 classes. The classes are open to boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 17 years old.
Each child that attends the camp will receive an official Attles School of basketball t-shirt, certificate of participation, skill development booklet and future personalized training sessions.
The Attles School of Basketball, which was established last year, goal is to teach baseline fundamental skills to kids who are passionate about the game. The series of classes will help kids build confidence, proficiency and awareness of how to play the game “the right way.”
The areas of skill development which will taught includes ball handling, passing, low post moves, shooting, footwork and offensive moves.
