Basketball Buddies (Thursdays)
Children ages 5-21 are meticulously paired up with teen mentors who act as the children’s coaches and buddies throughout the season. The 1 hour class is run by a physical education instructor along with other staff including a licensed social worker. Each child learns specific basketball skills each week and the class ends with a snack break and social skills learning piece. This is a great way for children to socialize with their peers while learning social skills and sports each week. The children play in the gym and benefit from the individualized attention provided by their mentors.
