Hunterdon Hoops: bALLers clinics
HH bALLers' mission is to provide additional opportunities for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities to HOOP! Our clinic is designed to create an environment that nurtures self- confidence, sportsmanship, and friendship through basketball. Additionally, we aim to develop social skills and foster increased participation, interaction, and engagement amongst our athletes. Our organization hopes to raise community awareness for continued inclusion, acceptance, and opportunity for individuals with disabilities.
HH bALLers is specifically designed to create a positive and uplifting physical and social experience for individuals with disabilities through basketball. Clinics are open to all skill levels, and do not require any previous basketball experience. Clinics will include basketball skill building drills for dribbling, passing, shooting and will also incorporate group play and simulated basketball game situations. Additionally, clinics will encourage all athletes to move their bodies through stretching, walking, running, and calisthenics. All athletes will be paired with a buddy (1:1, 2:1, 3:1). Basketball buddies will help encourage development of basketball skills while also promoting a positive social experience. Most importantly, clinics are designed to promote a non-competitive and UNITED experience.
Parents and guardians will be asked to complete a Get To Know My Baller form (emailed after registration) which will help assist staff in meeting each player's needs.
