Spring Program Format
Each WVBC Spring Session will feature a minimum Coach-to-Camper ratio of 1:8. For all practices, 32 players will be divided into 4 groups for individual skill development and team play. We aim to provide a rewarding experience for all campers by placing each player in a challenging group that reflects their level of experience. As the 8 weeks progress, we will build up to more and more game play using the skills and team tactics focussed on in previous weeks. Week 8 will feature a WVBC in-house tournament, where the players will be divided into 4 teams in a “nothing but games” night to celebrate our spring together.
Co-ed Grades 2/3 Session
This program emphasizes fun games that use basketball to teach fundamental movements and introduces beginning basketball skills. Basic movement skills include the ABC’s of agility, balance, coordination and speed. Specific basketball skills taught include stance, footwork, dribbling, passing and shooting. Your child will surely fall in love with basketball after attending this high energy, fun filled session! The Co-ed Grades 2-3 Session is limited to the first 32 registrants.

Development Grades 4-8 Sessions
All “Development” programs will be modeled on Canada Basketball’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. For more info about the LTAD, please click HERE. Each player will learn basic skills, strategies and rules that allow for future development, according to their physical and emotional maturation level. Weekly sessions will include a mix of individual drills, one on one challenges, and scrimmage play in a fun-filled learning atmosphere. A typical session will include a WVBC warm-up, 30 minutes of skill development, and 30 minutes of small-sided game play. Areas of focus will include: shooting mechanics, basic ball handling skills, one on one moves, defensive stance, team tactics, and an introduction to basketball specific strength and conditioning. All Development sessions are limited to 32 registrants.
