The second season of Hoop School is almost upon us.
The program, introduced in 2018, operates under the new Junior Reds banner, previously known as the Junior Varsity Reds.
It’s open to Grade 3 and 4 aged girls who are interested in playing competitive basketball in the fall of 2019.
The 9-session program costs $200, and will focus on fundamentals, individual offensive skills and the introduction of team concepts through 4-on-4 games.
“If you child has never played basketball before, but would like to, this is the perfect way to introduce them to the game,” said Jeff Speedy, head coach of the UNB Reds women’s basketball team. He runs the Junior Reds program. “Hoop School will teach your daughter about the game, in a way that is fun and encouraging. Hopefully, at the end, she’ll want to register for a fall league.”
Sessions will take place April 28th to May 26th, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, at UNB’s Richard J. Currie Center.
Registration opens April 1st, 2019 at www.goredsgo.ca
