Little Ballers is a fun beginner basketball league combined with weekly skills clinics for boys and girls Pre-K to 3rd Grade looking to get into the game of basketball. Little Ballers is offered on Saturdays during the Fall and Winter at our Highlands Ranch, Colorado Basketball Club Training Facility. Each season consists of five or six, one hour per week sessions led by Premier Basketball Club Staff and supported/assisted by volunteer coaches. Each session includes a 30-minute skills clinic and a 30-minute small court 3v3 game.
2021-22 Little Ballers League Dates and Locations
*Fall/Winter 2021 Dates and Information will be updated in August 2021.
New Covid-19 Procedures:
Due to Covid-19, we have adjusted the format for our Little Ballers program this year. Instead of placing kids on teams, we offer COED time slots for parents to sign up their children. Players will attend 30-minute skills session and a 30-minute game during that time slot every week.
Parents will be required to check-in their child at the start of the session. For the first 30 minutes of each session no parents (except volunteer coaches) will be allowed into the facility. After the first 30 minutes, we will check parents into the facility to watch the 30-minute game.
Pre-K through 3rd grade - Groups are based on grade and/or skill level. Advanced players can request to play up in an older group, but players are not allowed to play down in a younger group.
*Participants must be 3 years old by the start of the program and potty trained.

LITTLE BALLERS LEAGUE COACHES
NOTE: Our Premier Coaches will design the plan, run the drills, and ref the games for each session. The Volunteer Coaches are more responsible for supporting the Premier coaches, managing the players on their team, and assisting the Premier coaches with the drills/gameplay. Coaching/High Level basketball experience is not required. We prefer coaches who will help our players have fun with basketball and help grow their love for the game!
