Hamden Connecticut Youth Basketball

My my My my

Hamden Fathers Basketball Clinic

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. With snow upon us it must be basketball season !!!!

The CLINIC will start this Saturday December 6th at Hamden Middle School

2623 Dixwell Ave, Hamden, CT 06518

As you come in through the door (please use the Gym entrance door only to enter & exit: do not use the other doors as Cold Air will freeze our young players and we can ill afford players getting sick). The main entrance is at the far end of the overhang in front. You may park in circular driveway or the main parking lot. When you come in I would like everyone to check off that you are there on the lists for each age group. The list is in alphabetical order with the last name first.

This year we will have both the 5 & 6 year olds in a combined clinic. The time will start at 8am sharp- to 9am.

The 7 year olds will go from 9am sharp to roughly 1010am.

The 8 year olds will go from 1010 sharp to roughly 1125am

All players are to wear sneakers, tee shirt (cold days sweatshirt are fine), shorts (cold days sweat pants are fine).  After the holiday break from school uniforms will be issued out as players will be split into teams.

The players will work on drills each week and then play actual games during their allotted time (games begin usually after the break).

Each player will receive a trophy on the last week. We have a picture day, each team is done and our photographer Moto Photo also will do individual pictures as a optional package. The packages where well received last year, so we will continue again this year. Each player receives a FREE team photo. We will let you know ahead of time when that date is.

We encourage parent involvement as Coach Bernie needs helpers as line coaches and assisting in drills.

Please feel free to take pictures and video of your son or daughter during the clinic.

Janet will be the gym attendant during the 10 weeks. I will be there during our first 3 weeks to ensure everyone is having a good time.

Coach Bernie may suggest to that the better 6 year olds move up with the 7 year olds as well as 7’s move up to 8’s. If you feel your child is a good fit please do.

The 10 weeks without snow dates will be December 7, 14, 21 January 4, 11, 18, 25 February 1, 8, 15.

With snow storms we post on our website, WTNH 8, FOX 61

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, Janet or Coach Bernie

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday
