2nd Grade Basketball
New Canaan Co-Ed Development Program
Experienced, professional coaches will run a once-per-week Co-Ed fundamental basketball skills program for 2nd grade New Canaan boys & girls from November 2022 through early March 2023. The primary objectives of the program are to introduce the boys and girls to skill work, team play, and eventually full-court play, and to begin to prepare them for New Canaan Basketball’s 3rd & 4th grade Travel Prep Programs and ultimately the Middle School Travel Basketball program beginning in 5th grade. Spots will be limited in order to maintain a high-quality coach to player ratio.
Mike Evans, a former varsity head coach and NCAA Division 1 assistant, and a former semi-pro, college and high school all-state player, will oversee this foundational skills-based program that also includes intrasquad games. Mike’s website for basketball instruction can be found here.
