Evening Basketball Program for Children and Youth

Above the Rim Basketball School's evening programs are comprised of a series of weekly sessions in a variety of locations throughout the city of Ottawa. The students focus one specific basketball skill per session. They go through a number of drills, working on the fundamentals of that specific skill. There is also a mini-clinic each session, describing the importance of the skill and teaching the students how to integrate it into game play. After going over the "basketball skill of the day" the students play in well-structured and organized scrimmages.

Youth Basketball

The staff members at Above the Rim have an innate understanding of children's physical, mental and emotional development. The camps and classes are extremely well organized and set the children up for success by setting realistic goals.

Scrimmages will be used as an educational tool to reinforce the skill taught that evening. The final component of the weekly evening program will be a group tournament.

Experienced teachers and coaches emphasize the fundamental components of the game that are important for players to master in order to become good basketball players. Players from all levels and abilities (including the pros) constantly work at mastering or maintaining these skills. Therefore, the weekly evening program is suitable for players of all abilities.

Our mandate is to develop skills, which leads to confidence and competence on the court. This fosters desire to play basketball, be active and have fun.

We offer children's programs for boys and girls ages 6 to 12, and additional programs for youth up to age 16. Please refer to the information below for program specific details and locations.
