Friday Night Hoops ready to tip-off for another season

Another season of Friday Night Hoops is ready to tip off.

The league is designed to introduce girls in Grades 3-7 to basketball. The weekly sessions are designed to produce an environment that has kids learn skills, have fun and be competitive.

Graduates of the program have won 11 provincial championships in the past 10 years.

The players will be split into two groups: Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-7. Advanced players in Grade 5 can move up.

Each session includes 60 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of game action.

The program is run by coaches Neil Brown and Chris Veale of the Brookswood Bobcats program, as well as members of the Bobcats program.

The sessions are held on Friday nights at Brookswood Secondary from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Players are asked to bring their own ball.

It begins on Friday (Oct. 5) with six weekly sessions and runs until Nov. 19. There is no session on Nov. 9.

Cost is $60.
