Youth Basketball Clinics
Viking’s youth basketball clinics a great introduction the game. Our coaches have crafted age based curriculums to ensure each child gets the right dose of age appropriate skill development and fun. During a typical season we introduce players to the basic skills of dribbling, passing and shooting during the first half of the class, followed by a fun scrimmage during the second half; age adjusted rules and lower hoops are used as necessary. We want kids excited to come back week after weeks, so we strongly emphasis fun and learning.
Advanced Basketball Clinics
Viking’s advanced basketball clinics are geared towards players who understand the basics who can grasp more advanced drills and concepts. These classes are more competitive than a traditional class as the coaches expect a little more from the players. Our goal for all Advanced Basketball classes is to improve a players basketball IQ and to improve skills.
