The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme will be offering a Mighty Mites Basketball Instructional Basketball Program for boys and girls entering the first and second grades. Sign-ups will close September 17th and the cost is $20.00 plus a $15.00 annual Club membership fee. The games will be played at the MVS Youth Center (1900 W. 5th St.) on Wednesday s, beginning September 29th and ending November 3rd. The program has been designed to give boys and girls their first opportunity to play organized basketball with emphasis being placed on skill instruction and development, teamwork and sportsmanship. The fundamental skills of passing, dribbling and shooting will be taught and practiced in a safe, non-competitive environment.
The purpose of the Mighty Mites Basketball Instructional Program is to provide 1st & 2nd graders with a safe and enjoyable athletic experience with emphasis on sportsmanship and fair play. All participants will be instructed in the fundamental skills of the sport including positioning, rules and basic strategy. Fundamental playing rules will be taught and enforced at a rate that is suitable to their grade level.
Participation in sports offers the youth opportunities to achieve through participation in activities that require integration of mind and body, requiring them to strive for mental and physical excellence both in practice and in competition. These are lifetime values that promote and nurture integrity, pride, loyalty, and overall character.
