My 14 year old son has loved playing basketball since he could walk. This fall he starts high school and is looking forward to (hopefully!) playing on the basketball team.
With a lot of local summer basketball camps cancelled this year many kids are looking for other ways to keep their skills fresh. We have a hoop in the driveway and an outdoor school court 4 blocks away. Great for getting in play time but not a place to learn new techniques. Plus, his siblings don’t always make the best teammates lol.
