Clinic Level: Grades 1 & 2
The clinic level is considered to be instructional. The clinic is about learning the parts of the basketball court and the basic fundamentals of the game. There will be drills and fun games played that incorporate the skills learned throughout the clinic.
NCAA Level: Grades 3 & 4
The NCAA level is considered to be instructional. Coaches are expected to demonstrate a game approach that is more like a clinic whereby the focus is on teaching and learning not winning and losing. Each game will have one certified referee who will do his/her best at monitoring all actions on the court, while also helping to support the mission of the NCAA level of teaching and learning the game.
WNBA & NBA Level: Grades 5 & 6
The WNBA/NBA level is considered to be competitive. Coaches are expected to demonstrate a game approach that continues to nurture player and team development not promote a win-at-all-costs mentality. Each game will have two certified referees who will do his/her best at monitoring all actions on the court, while also helping to support the mission of the WNBA/NBA level of nurturing player and team development.
